    Default x58A-UD3R Rev2 FB problems

    Hi...I've been in and out of this forum over the past week or so trying to work out how to fix issues with the x58A-UD3R Rev 2 FB...

    My rig:
    i7 930 2.8g
    Gigabyte X58A-UD3R Rev2.0
    HIS ATI pcie HD5670
    Seagate 3.5 Sata2 1TB x2
    ADATA 2g DDR3 1600 3x2g
    Zalman CNPS10X Quiet CPU Cooler
    Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 PSU
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64b

    What happened:

    1. Install W7 64bit...no problem
    2. Tweak stuff in services/ startup...the usual things
    3. No overclocking...I don't want to OC it
    4. Noticed that 2 of my 3 RAM sticks were not being recognised
    5. Online solution seemed to be to update bios
    6. Did that...updated to FB bios...all RAM recognised fine but...
    7. Started experiencing cold boot failures
    8. First time cold boot failure. I turn off, unplug HD cables, plug back in, turn on and it's ok. And it's been doing this for the last 2 days on a cold boot.

    This is where I am now. I'm of course super keen on solving these issues and believe that I can and will be able to without taking it back to the shop.

    My next plan is to flash bios with FC1....as I have read it has been successful for some with my cold boot failure. I really hope it works. I'll be doing it tonight. Also....CPU pins....I have checked them once....I didn't see any bent ones....but I am prepared to look again and to take photos if need be.

    I'll be happy to provide any information that is required to fix my particular problem for my machine.

    Also....1 more thing. I am willing to buy a replacement mobo...(if nothing works) (though I think a solution will be reached)....so can anyone suggest a mobo that would be appropriate and would marry up with the rest of my hardware?

    thanks very much

    Yes please take photos of the CPU socket if you are not sure, do so in Macro mode if your camera has it and take them in a well lit room with no flash, taken from several angles.

    This can also be incorrect voltages, are you setting voltages yourself manually?

    About the photos...sure

    I am not setting voltages manually, no...I can give full bios specs later tonight if need be.

    thanks

    ps...I just had a thought after talking to a friend....he mentioned that probably the best way to solve this problem is not to flash bios like this with flash after flash update....but to flash the latest bios and then do a complete reinstall of Windows 7 so that it can recognise and 'connect' to the latest bios right from the very start.......as opposed to being installed on an 'out of date' bios and repeatedly flashed up to the latest bios.

    Does that make any practical sense?

    Ahh well since you are not setting voltages yourself it could be either that or bent pins maybe.

    Windows has nothing to do with the BIOS, nor do they interact in any real way in regards to this, so no need to reinstall windows at all. Just flash the BIOS you want to use and go from there.

    If you are sure you have no bent pins that's fine, don't remove the CPU anymore unless you already are doing so. If you're sure we'll try to get your voltages right and see if that fixes it, if not we'll have to check your socket later on to be sure.

    Give me a link to your memory and then your current full BIOS settings and I'll advise back, template is in my signature.

    Ok thanks...I have just flashed to FC1...and was thinking about flashing the backup bios (which is still FA at the moment).

    I will get all the bios specs and post them up here.

    Then I think I will turn my PC off for an hour and a half or so and try a cold boot.

    looking at your settings you need to change these

    CPU Clock Drive ..............................[700mV]set to 800mv
    CPU Vcore ...............................1.25000V (Auto)-set to normal in voltage list for stock cpu clocks
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.175v-set to around 1.25000-1.30000v
    DRAM Voltage 1.500v (Auto)set according to ram,either 1.5v or 1.66v
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) ........ [AUTO] set to give you rated ram speed 1600mhz ect either 8x or 10x ect

    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) .......... [Auto]set manual and type in ram timings below(select quick to set timings for all ram installed)



    Channel A + B + C



    Channel A Timing Settings:

    ##Channel A Standard Timing Control##

    CAS Latency Time ......................9

    tRCD .......................................9

    tRP .........................................9

    tRAS .......................................24

    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) ................... [Enabled]disable this and use balanced profile setting in windows7

    I'll give it a shot then, thanks.

    I have input those values....and will wait until the morning to see if it can cold boot.

    thanks again...

    Well it's morning and my cold boot problems are still here. The PC tried to boot 3 times before giving me a blue screen with these details:

    Stop: 0x000000FC (0xFFFFF8A0000CA588, 0x8CA00001938B6963, 0xFFFFF8802B32AF0, 0x0000000000000002)

    After encountering the blue screen, I shut down (and in what always seems to help the computer to boot up) I unplugged the HD cables power and sata, replugged in...booted up.

    Any help or tips regarding this blue screen message?

    Some hardware driver conflict?

    Could it be my old DVD drive? It's the oldest part of this build.

    I dunno....any help would be great

    thanks
