    Default GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 new build having issues

    hi guys
    1st post and 1st custom built computer
    specs are
    Mobo - GA-X58A-UD3R v2 bios version FB
    Ram - g.skill F3-12800cl8t-(3x2gb) 6gbrm
    cpu - i7 950 3.06mhz
    cooling - corsair h70
    gpu - 2 x evga nividia gtx 460's
    psu - corsair hx850
    hdd - 1tb western digital black caviar
    case - antec 902
    os - windows 7 home premium 64bit

    ok the issue is i was getting some random bsod's, win 7 suggested running its memory diagnostics tool which i ran and it came up all was fine, still more bsod's, i downloaded memtest86+ for the usb and loaded that, booted memtest got errors when checking all 3 sticks, memory was running default 1066mhz

    was following the instructions on the corsair forums about how to use memtest and it said to make sure that the ram settings were set to the manufacturers specs, so i checked the g.skill website the timmings are 8-8-8-24 2, i read through the forums and found that i just need to enable the xmt profile1 in the bios so i did,

    at this stage i am getting the led lights on the mobo light up, the ones closest to the ram themselves (these are green,yellow,green,yellow,green) which i researched to find out that is about the qpi/vtt being above 1.3v

    asides from the ram led's being on the cpu led's are on aswell, which are green and also the north bridge led is green.

    should the cpu light and north bridge light be on when utilizing the xmt profile1?

    the vcore is 1.232v
    cpu feq is 3198.72mhz
    mem freq is 1599.33mhz
    cpu temp is 33.0

    i ran 1 pass of memtest on the 1600mhz and it came up fine, was l8 at night when i did this and didnt want to leave the computer on all night.

    this morning i got a cpu failure warning.
    cpu core failure
    cpu -1
    core 0
    thread 0

    packages 1
    cores per package 4
    threads per package 2

    i turned pc of straight away reloaded default settings and all led's were off was unable to run a memtest to see if errors were still occuring as i was already l8 for work.

    at this stage all i want is for the computer to run fine at its default cpu speed and 1600mhz ram settings.

    if you need more information dont hesitate to ask

    dont use xmp,look in the bios and set system memory multiplier (spd) to give you 1600mhz ram speed,set dram voltage according to ram,either 1.5v or 1.66v,set cpu voltage to normal and qpi/vtt voltage to 1.31500v,those voltages are quite safe to use,as for leds,its normal to have one green next to the nb and cpu

    P.S. to set your timings select dram timing selectable to manual,then select quick and type in from top to bottom 8-8-8-24-2T and it will set timings for all three sticks

    ok, so i set teh timings to 8-8-8-24 2t, the multplier to 12x to get it too 1600mhz, the dram v to 1.6v and the qpi to 1.315v

    with the led's i have 1 green on the ram 1 green on cpu and none on north bridge

    i dont understand why teh cpu led is on if i am tinkering with the ram


    also is this the reason i had a cpu core failure?

    idk,auto voltages are best avoided for cpu/dram and qpi/vtt,you will use less and be more stable if you find a stable manual setting,i have the same lights next to my ram and cpu,when you overclock your cpu you will see blue lights according to how high your oc'd,i have 5 lit, remember if your rams voltage is 1.65v you have to set 1.66v in the bios,you can find ram timings/voltages printed on the side of the ram,set cpu voltage to normal setting in cpu voltage list too

    ok cheers, i just checked cpu-z and it is stating im at 10-11-11-24

    also in the memory settings were you can set extreme and standard and the other level, what do i set these to i set it to standard.

    also when i entered the timings 8-8-8-24 in the yellow text which overrode the auto, the blue text should that also change after i have saved and rebooted?

    the barcode on the packaging for teh ram says cl8-8-824 1.6v

    the blue number will change once youve typed it in and saved and exited, if its rated at 1.6v then i wouldnt go above that,set it to 1.6v in the bios,you can set system performance enhance to standard for now and see if it freezes again with all those settings

    aslong as cpu-z says 8-8-8-24 then its right,did you select quick before you typed them in? if not you need to type them in for each stick,it will say channel a/b/c ect,yeah change cpu voltage to normal if your at stock cpu clocks
