    Default ga-ep45-ud3p problems

    Hello,
    So my first rig consitists of a ga-ep45-ud3p rev. 1.6, a 750hx psu,
    currently a e8400, about 2 b upgraded 2 a q9550, and now 8 gigs of
    OCZ2RPR10664GK, a 1tb wd hard drive and a brand new OCZSSD2-2VTX40G. I have 2
    problems. #1 when I got my second kit of OCZ2RPR10664GK, I have had to lower my
    oc from 4.04ghz down to stock because no matter how much voltage i give 2 the
    northbridge and 2 the ram (1.32 volts and 2.2) it either gets into an endless
    reboot loop (at my origanal speed of 4ghz) or it freezes in boot or gets an
    error in windows that says it will shutdown in 1 minute and areo looks like the
    basic theme with the grayish blue colors. I know that running 8 gigs stress the
    northbridge but idk how to make it work. im gonna run memtest with just the 2
    new sticks soon to c if the sticks r bad. #2 my new ssd slows down the sata
    bios detection. It hangs while its detecting the ssd then gives the message
    smart command failed. I have the FE bios and the 1.11 firmware on the drive. I
    have my 1tb in the 1st sata port till I install windows 7 on the ssd and then
    the ssd then the dvd drive. I tried downgrading the firmware of the ssd but it wont let me. Thank you.

    You may not be able to run 8GB at 1066, is that what you were trying?

    Please give me the full settings you try that fail in a template from my signature, then we can advise back.

    You may be trying to much speed, incorrect Vtt, wrong memory strap, to low of a tRD, ect. Many things could be the cause of issues, but we need to see what you are trying first before we can help.

    The SMART error is a known issue with Sandforce drives, I just asked for a BIOS fix for this model so I will let you know once I hear back, just hold on a bit.

    Thank you for your help, i had it running at 449mhz fsb, i took it out of sleep mode, it turned off then, did the dual bios thing, then i tried 2 make it run at that setting again and no joy. Im gonna plop in a q9550 and hope that i can run it fast enough without overheating the northbridge. the above settings seem to b stable, 10 hours of prime95 and it didnt error. Im trying to get it to a 450+ fsb or so with the 8 gigs and quadcore. i kno it may b hard on the northbridge so thats y im concerned. do u c any setting that would prevent a high oc with the new parts? and thanks for looking into the ssd issue, im short on time and havnt had the time 2 install windows again on it or put in the quadcore. thanks again

    So you don't need help with the above settings then? If not, give me the ones you do need help with, or wait until you get your new CPU then we'll try it all again.

    the mobo has a dual bios feature which, if the main 1 fails, it applies the deafault settings from the second 1. and yes lsdmeasap, its good now, ill let u kno when i get the new cpu in

    OK, well when you try again, if you do with this system, you may want to try the following changes

    Driving Strength Profiles (Both channels)
    Driving Strength ............................800mhz << Set 1066

    Motherboard Voltage Control
    CPU
    CPU Vcore….……….........................:1.3625(setting , actual 1.344)
    CPU Termination…..... 1.200V*.......: << 1.2 << This may need increased, especially with 8GB of memory. Try 1.24-1.34
    CPU PLL…………………....1.500V*.......: << 1.6 << Not needed, you can use 1.5-1.55 for sure
    CPU Referen.…………....0.755V*.......: <<< Auto
    CPU Reference2………,,0.800V*.......:<<< Auto

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: << 1.32 << Try less, with the above Vtt increase it may be possible (Maybe 1.26-1.32)
    MCH Reference….…….0.760V...........; <<< Leave << Auto
    MCH/DRAM Ref.…......0.900V...........: <<< Leave << Auto
    ICH I/O……………….....1.500V............: <<< auto
    ICH Core…………...……1.100V............: <<< auto

    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ……....1.800V............: 2.22(setting, speedfan=2.21)
    DRAM Termination .…0.900V............: <<< << Auto

    You are confusing between two different things.
    In the event settings fail BIOS attempts to boot with a previous known settings, or find good settings.
    The dual BIOS take effect only when the main BIOS is corrupted and then reflash main BIOS or boot from the backup BIOS.
    My understanding is that you only had multi boot, is that correct?

    I think he just meant what he tried failed, so defaults were loaded.

    But yes, he is confused I think, as that has nothing to do with Dual BIOS - as you mentioned
