    It might not be dead, but certainly is faulty.

    When you use 6GB are you setting your own QPI/Vtt? If so what are you using
    I have not touched any settings in BIOS yet. What do you recommend? I also just realized that my ratio for the processor was at 20 making the cpu run at only 2.66 so I upped it to 21. (shouldnt be an issue right?) Turbo boost seems to be disabled as well... this is normal stock?

    you need to enable intel turbo boost for it to use the extra 1x cpu multiplier,it will run with turbo and multithreading on without any problems,manually set your dram voltage as auto will overvolt it sometimes on stock and will always overvolt it if overclocked,you can manually type in your ram timings aswell by selecting spd-manual and typing in 8-8-8-24-1T ect according to your ram

    If you want 21 you can either set it manually at 21 and disable turbo or leave it at 20 and enable turbo.

    Give me your current full settings in a template from my signature and I will advise back some optimal ranges for you to tinker with.

    Default Re: GA-X58A-UD3R + G Skill Ram = 4/6 GB Usable issue (with a twist)

    Ok guys, sorry for the late reply! I finally got my ram module back from G.SKill. It definetly was a bad module as now I can boot it from just one piece in any slot and it boots.

    But of course you know there still has to be some problems right?

    Now I am getting what seems to be a 'cold start' issue now...

    I start the pc for the first time getting the ram back. All 3 modules in, boot to BIOS all are registered 6gb. Fine and dandy. Then boot to windows, and says 4/6GB usable. Kind of weird since the BIOS said it saw all 6. Anyways, restarted went to BIOS again, now its saying 4gb. Go to windows, same deal.

    Turn it off, reseat all the ram, restart. 6gb in BIOS 6gb in windows. Nice!

    The next day do a cold start, BIOS says 4, windows says 4gb. Restart, go to BIOS, says 6, windows says 6. So these past few days I have just been playing the restart game so I can use my 6gb, but ideally I would like to not have to do this and just use my computer like a normal person...

    The full specs to help out.

    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev 2.0 stock bios)
    Intel i7 930 2.8 ghz (21x multiplier)
    G.Skill (3x2gb) 240-pin DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) -(F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ)
    (stock timings recognized in BIOS: (8-8-8-20-1T) )
    XFX ATi 5770


    I have not touched any voltages. The only things touched on my BIOS are:

    *The 21x multiplier for the cpu
    *Memory timing changed to: (9-9-9-24-2T) since that what it says on the actual memory module.

    It is supposed to be running at 1333, but it only runs at 1066 in bios, id like to fix that as well.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Louis

    ive seen this happen with atleast 3 other users all g-skill ram aswell,what qpi/vtt voltages are you using?? set ram timings yourself and dram voltage,if that doesnt fix it then if it were me id exchange for another brand,to get 1333 mhz go in spd system multilpier and raise the ram mutiplier to raise the ram speed try with 1.25-1.3v for qpi/vtt

    Ok, here is EVERYTHING that I see haha. You now know as much as I do. My QPI/VTT is 1.175v
    Also my set DRAM voltage is supposed to be at 1.5v, but on the main screen bios you can see it is running at 1.52v, I am sure this has nothing to do with the issue, let alone relation to anything?

    you can set the qpi/vtt voltage to 1.25v-1.3v and ram multiplier to give you 1333mhz or as close to without going over,to change it see image below,set it to manual and then alter the speed

    Ok I got the QPI/VTT running at 2.75 and got the multiplier up and running now at 1333 for the ram. Still no luck though with the success of a cold start recognizing the ram.

    I read on some new egg reviews saying something about bumping up the ram voltage to 1.65-1.66V to fix the issue of recognition, but I am really scared to do something like that. Especially when the BIOS has those voltages in the pink/red category

    2.75v for qpi/vtt?? you mean 1.275?? dont set it to 2.75 thats too much and will damage,1.275 is fine,whats the ram rated at 1.5v? if so stick to that,if its rated at 1.65 then 1.66 in the bios is fine

    Im sorry yes, i meant 1.275! The ram is rated at 1.5 V, but the gskill staff responded on newegg saying to up the voltage to 1.66 which i find kind of odd no?

    But yea, still having the first start problem... even with the changes in QPI/VTT
