    Default Ex58-DS4 with Corei7 920 random crashes

    Hi, I have put together this system early this year running Corei7 920 on the gigabyte EX58-DS4 board with 3X2gig OCZ triple channel OCZ3G1600LV6GK, and an Asus 9800GTX+ video card. Originally I was running vista ultimate, and I experienced random crashes where the system just hang. The crashes can happen anytime either during startups, internet browsing, gaming or waking from sleep. I thought it was vista having driver incompatibility issue, but since then I have upgraded to Win7 professional through a clean istall, and the problem persisted. I have updated the Bios to the latest version F11, and the CPU temp is normal. I have also ran a complete memtest and no problem there either.

    I'm just frustrated since the system can be running very stable for days, and I'd think the problem's gone away, but a restart and it will crash again.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    its more likely a bios setting thats causing the hangs,whats your current cpu,qpi/vtt,dram timings and voltages??

    Hi, my CPU clock ratio is 20X at 2.66GHz (133x20), QPI 4.8GHz, Dram timing 7-7-7-16, voltages DDR at 1.5V and QPI at 1.15V

    Please give us your full current BIOS settings, there is a template in my signature for you to do so.

    For now, I can say you likely need to use more QPI/Vtt (1.35 or so), and to set your ram voltage to spec.

    Hi, I have set the ram voltage to spec 2 days ago to see if that alone works first, but last night it crashed again. So I have now made all the changes and set the CPU to extreme instead of turbo mode and the system seems to be runnning stable. Thanks

    what qpi/vtt voltages are you using? maybe one or two clicks more would help
