    Ooops, yup you're right... I assumed you had the same board as me... sorry for that.

    Well F6e is the latest beta for your board, I would give that a try.

    F6e link :- http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/12...58aud5.f6e.zip
    Links to all boards beta's : - Gigabyte Latest BIOS

    Hope you get some results.

    And I agree, also please go ahead and flash to the latest Beta if you don't mind.

    Please use Qflash, DO NOT USE @BIOS! If you are unsure of how to safely flash please read this guide
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    After you flash be sure you load optimized defaults, then save/apply/reboot F10 and go immediately back to the BIOS. Once in the BIOS go set your SATA/Disk settings again, VERY important you do this before you load windows if you are using RAID.

    Then set your QPI/Vtt and Dram voltage, and any other changes you need to make in the MIT Section.

    Then get us your full exact BIOS settings and we can advise back.

    I prefer not to use beta versions for BIOS so let's try if we can get this system up and running with the latest official one (F5). Initially it's also fine if the system runs with default CPU clock (and thus we can let the Intel Turbo Boost do its magic).

    So what I have done so far? I booted to BIOS and loaded optimal defaults. After that I saved and rebooted and went back to BIOS and changed the following settings:

    - changed boot order (CD first, hard disk second)
    - disabled floppy
    - disabled Full Screen Logo
    - enabled HDD S.M.A.R.T Capability

    I also changed the following M.I.T. settings:

    - CPU Clock Ratio -> 21
    - Uncore Clock Ratio -> 21
    - BCLK Frequency -> 133
    - SPD -> 10
    - DRAM Settings -> 9-9-9-24
    - CPU Vcore and QPI/VTT -> normal

    After that I saved, rebooted and started Windows installation. However, installation ends up with reboot loop after the first or second boot during the Windows 7 installation. The installation continues if I drop CPU Clock Ratio (tested with x15).

    I do not use RAID - I only have one DVDRW and one SATAII hard disk.

    Please advice what settings should be used for i7-930 and Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G (3 chips installed in memory slots 1, 3 and 5). Thank you!

    Hi,

    Your problem seems very similar to mine. If you havent read my first posts allready you should. Have you tried setting the QPI/Vtt voltage manually? I've had great success with 1.255 v. I lowered it another notch to ca. 1.2 v also, and still stable as an ethiopian long distance runner. I run my memory at 1066mhz, 8-8-8-20 1t at the moment, so you might not have the same success as me with the same voltage. As Lsdmeasap said to me earlier, try to tweak around with the QPI/Vtt setting til you find something stable.
    My system boots everytime, and I havent experienced any crashes. If I set my QPI/Vtt to auto my system even has trouble to shut down properly from Windows.

    Your setup is alot like mine to. Might be the combo of ga-a58x-ud5, i7 930 and maybe also the kingston mem (allthough we dont have the same model here).

    I dont think your PSU should be the issue. I thought so too early in the troubleshooting prosess, but no.. And I've actually tested with a different PSU (a Zalman 750w) with no difference. My current PSU is an OCZ modXstream 780w. Same symptoms on both.

    Good luck mate!

    Yes, I have disabled floppy. The only change I made to get Windows 7 64-bit installed, was lowering the CPU Clock ratio.

    After installation was finished and all drivers and W7 updates were installed, I changed CPU Clock ratio back to x21. And then I noticed that the system was unstable. As the crashes were random, I started to test the system by installing another Windows 7 installation on another disk as that is much easier and faster way to test that all settings are fine than waiting for random crashes. Of course here I assume that both OS installation problem and stability issues are related to the same settings.

    FYI, I also use the f5 bios version.

    Also, I installed Win 7 with my CPU multi on x15, and I advice you to do the same, then try to tweak the QPI/Vtt when you are up and running.

    "Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) ......... [Disabled] <-- This setting I could not locate anywhere"

    Not all memory comes with an XMP profile. It's most likely why you can't find the setting to enable it.

    Thanks :)! That explains why I did not find that settings.
