    Default Non-OC needs help on EP45T-USB3P + 8GB DDR3 1333 Crucial Ballistix Tracer.

    Good evening to all!

    I have built a new system (everything new) with:

    Intel X3350 S775, - GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-USB3P LGA 775 Intel P45 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard,

    and 2 Sets of 1333 Ballistix Crucial Tracer 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM (8GB Total).

    XFX 850W Black Edition Power Supply

    Lancool Dragonlord PC-K62

    All of this is built in a dust free and static free room. Everything is as stock as it could get since I have zero IQ in OC and the idea of it is very much uncomfortable to me.

    Tried with all 8GB, 4GB and even single 2GB and every try results to BSOD, Memtest Errors(left and right on each stick), Memtest hanging (unexpected error halting). BIOS and everything at STOCK, Non-OCed.

    Memtest'ed each stick on each slot and swapped sticks on different slots and still memtest red errors are all over the screen (most on TEST 6, 7, 8). BIOS and everything at STOCK, Non-OCed.

    Symptoms include "Constant reboot loop", "stuck on Gigabytye logo", "memtest errors", "memtest hanging", system shutting down on its own.

    BIOS and everything at STOCK, Non-OCed.

    Loaded BIOS defaults with every memtest try on each stick on different slots.

    Is my X3350 processor DOA?

    Is my EP45T-USB3P the problem? Dying maybe?

    Is my 1333 DDR3 8GB Ballistix Tracer dying or a dud?

    Which should I RMA?

    Are my PC parts incompatible with each other hence this problem?

    Fudge "ego", I need your help Tweaktown! Thanks in advance.

    Are you using Optimized BIOS defaults for your testing, or fail safe? You should use Optimized.

    Are you using the latest BIOS? If not please update it, DO NOT USE@BIOS, use Qflash or DOS, here is a guide

    And here is the latest BIOS

    It very well could just be your settings, if you are already using the latest BIOS let me know and give me your full settings you are trying and I will advise back, template in my signature for you to do so.

    4-8GB will need some changes in the BIOS, so for now just put in 4GB in slots 1+3 and then I will give you settings and advice on what may need increased to add the other 4GB.

    Another thing I noted, that memory you bought is made for P55/X58 boards, it may or may not function properly on P45.

    I did just help someone with it though I believe at the Crucial forums, same board, and I think they got it working finally after much hassle (So you may want to try different memory if that can be easily done).

    Is it just me or are the links on this page not working?
