    Default GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Problems

    Just got this board with a 2600K, 2 x 2Gb Crucial 1333 9 9 9 24 1.5 volt ram. I flashed to the F2 Bios and installed XP with a slipstreamed Intel Rapid Storage AHCI driver without any problems.
    The rest of the driver install went fine (chipset, management engine interface, audio, lan, usb 3 ect.) and there are no missing items in device manager. I use default bios settings and don't overclock.
    Things seemed to run fine for a few hours and then on initial start up my keyboard wouldn't be recognized and I could not enter bios. The board would continue and boot.
    I tried a few more times to get into the bios and then started to get black screen/freeze after pressing delete to enter bios.
    After manually shutting down I could get keyboard control and get in the bios maybe once before the problem starts again.
    I should add that once it loads the OS the board seems to run fine.
    I'm trying hard to like this board and would appreciate any insight on this.

    What kind of keyboard is it PS/2 or USB?
    Could be a BIOS glitch that will be fixed soon, does it happen if you just cold boot(e.g. ctrl+alt+delete when in BIOS or just exit without saving changes) ?
    Try to enable keyboard function legacy usb in Integrated Peripherals and see if that helps.

    Have you loaded optimized or fail-safe defaults? Optimized are recommended.
    Note that if you load them now you must reconfigure RAID if you have one before starting windows.

    If it's not too difficult, could you post MaxxMEM² - PreView(there's a built in screenshot) results for your memory? Just curios about Sandy Bridge performance with this low frequency/CAS memory.

    And don't press Delete too many times when trying to enter the BIOS as it can cause reboot or freezes, unlike previous boards.

    Hi.

    I'm also experiencing very similar problems with this board; purchased about 2 weeks ago and running F2. Seems to be considerably worse when running memory under XMP Profile 1 (1866MHz); almost always failing to boot. The memory is 2x2GB Corsair 2000MHz/CL8 and should have no problems at this speed... confirmed with multiple passes of MemTest-86 at either speed. I have very similar issues with USB keyboard(s), yet it runs fine once booted into Win7 64-bit?

    I've opened cases with both Gigabyte and Corsair, hoping that someone will find a solution, as I certainly feel cheated running expensive 2000CL8 memory at 1333CL9!

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciate!

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Your better off manually setting ram speed/timings and set qpi/vtt voltage and dram voltage yourself

    I agree, and any memory designed for 2000Mhz use it not setup for P67, so you shouldn't use XMP at all.

    What is the revision on your model sticker? If it's 2.1 then these are Elpida Hyper modules which have been known to have a terrible time with P67, Hyper on P67 is a fail for me as well so don't feel bad.

    I've already tried manual settings without any success. The memory version is 7.1 and, according to another forum, is made by PSC. The actual kit (CMT6GX3M3A2000C8) is specified and verified by Gigabyte for the P67A-UD4-B3, albeit, downgraded to DDR3-1866. I've tried BIOS versions F1, F2 and now the F3-beta. I can only assume that something is just broken?? I just hope it isn't the mobo because of the effort involved... still, how can you blame the memory when it tests and runs perfectly when the board does decide to boot??

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to test the memory anywhere else... I'm hoping my supplier might be able to assist here?

    Is it cold boots that it fails on? Once warm its fine? You could email gigabyte and explain and they might send a custom bios for you,what qpi/vtt voltage did you try with?

    Cold or warm doesn't seem to make a difference... at least I've not been able to determine a difference. I've only been able to fully boot at 1866 on very rare occassions; usually it does it's multiple restart thing before dropping to 1333. Mothman's OP states the symptoms quite well!

    I'm happy to try manual settings again, however, I don't believe I have EVERY timing value on hand. XMP provides the following: 8-9-8-24 and 51-110-2-8-15-8-8 (RC-RFC-CR-RRD-WR-WTR-RTD); however, there's a couple of options missing, such as WTP, WL, FAW and CMD (which should be 2 I believe).

    So, I've tried it on 8-9-8-24 and the rest auto, VCore-1.66V and VTT-1.16V (only .02 increments available via manual setup). I'm open to any suggestions regarding these values!

    Many thanks,
    Matt.
