    Default GA-EP45-UD3P don't work with 4x2GB OCZ2P8004GK

    At the start of the year, I built my current comp but after many unsuccessful tries, I never made my 4 banks of 2GB OCZ2P8004GK work together, so I settle for only 4GB. But now, I'm in need to upgrade to 8GB so that's why I'm coming to ask for your help.

    I did memtest and all banks passed; changed twice the motherboard with same results so I believe it may be a setting problem so here are my specs:


    Code:

    1.Its been awhile since I had my Q8200 but the Q8400 is very similar.

    2.Load and save optimised defaults in bios,then reboot and enter the bios.

    3. Ill just change any settings ,I think may help without a cpu overclock.

    4. set your pci clock drive to 900mv and your cpu clock drive to 800mv

    5.then working from the bottom of the bios upward

    (a)The DRAM voltage for your memory is supposed to be 2.1v at 800mhz yes?.Enter that in manually and hit F10 and save and boot.
    If that doesnt work for you go back into bios again:
    (b)leave the memory V at 2.1V .Go to MCH voltage you could start off with 1.16 V try that, if no good go back in and try 1.18.then 1.20-1.24V
    leave memory at 2.1v and mch at 1.24V or whatever mch voltage you needed.
    (c)you should now be able to manually enter memory timings of 5-5-5-15.
    I think your memory is supposed to run 5-4-4-15 at 800mhz but just try 5-5-5-15 first.

    You might have to change static read settings or tweak other things if those settings dont work but try those first.

    Could you post a screen capture of MemSet main and SPD(click spd) windows?
    Also please check BIOS PC Health for actual applied DRAM Voltage.
    Are you with 8GB now or just 4GB?

    Default Re: GA-EP45-UD3P don't work with 4x2GB OCZ2P8004GK

    First of all, thanks kick and Chike for your replies. Now, I did many tests and tried many configuration, one by one, suggested by kick. No matter what I do, I can't make the four (or even three) banks work together.

    I did try every tiny change kick suggested to the basic configuration, started with only 2 banks (dimm # 1 & 2) and every time I changed the settings, both loaded without troubles. But when i tried to add dimm 3 and 4 it didn't flash and run into a loop.

    For every setting, i also tried to start it with only dimm #3 & #4, no go; #1 & #3, no go; #2 & #4, no go. #1 & # 4, no go; #2 & #3, no go. Is it possible that dimm #3 & #4 are dead? As I told you this is the second mobo, because when it happened the first time I requested a RMA and got this one.

    As suggested, I'm attaching memtest and pc health screenshots. Is there a way to test dimm #3 & #4 health, like trying only one bank on each? or any application that can do that? And yes Chicke, I'm only running 4GB at the moment.

    Thanks again for your time.

    Yes, please try with just one module at slots 3 then slot 4. Could be a channel problm, motherboard or other.
    Run several loops of memtest86+ for each of them.
    Also try to clear CMOS before you start, load optimized defaults and se set performance enhance to standard (no other changes in MIT)

    Well, I didn't want to come to this conclusion but yeah... I try one module on slot 3 and then 4 with same results: it didn't flash. Just in case did the same with slots 1 and 2 and it started normally. Unless you come with a trick under the arm, I believe these slots are dead.

    So, what to do next? My return window with Amazon expired on Feb 19th, 2010leaving me with two options: buy 2 x 4G modules or replace mobo but maybe with one that will take everything I currently have. Any suggestions?

    And once again, thanks for your time.

    By "flash" you mean boot?
    If the motherboard is in fault you better rplace it. If Amazon won't replace it GIGABYTE will.

    Yes Chike, by flash i meant boot; it dont' even get monitor signal so yeah I just read on Gigabyte site that there mobos have a 3 year warranty. I guess I will start a RMA request but still wondering: is it possible to get two damaged mobos in a row? The only answer to that is that both were from the same batch and hopefully a replacement will be from another.

    Did the other motherboard you RMAd had the same problem with slots 3 & 4?
    Are you sure it has been replaced? Write the serial number to be sure.

    Yeah, Amazon sent me the replacement while I still had the first one.
