    Unhappy GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Ram trouble

    Hi everyone-

    I currently have this set up for a new build:
    -GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4-B3
    -i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
    -CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W
    -G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series - Model F3-10666CL7Q-16GBXH
    (40-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666))

    I'm having a serious problem with the Ram and the motherboard not working together. For awhile I could not get passed the BIOS with just one stick of 4gb ram. I eventually tweaked the ram's BIOS settings (essentially turning all the autos off and then to the default ram settings).
    I now have the computer working fine with that one 4gig stick. Unfortunately, whenever I add a second one, to any of the slots, the motherboard turns off and then on in, a loop and never even gets to the BIOS. I've tweaked almost all of the BIOS settings with the one stick and swapped out the other sticks I have and nothing seems to work. I am contemplating returning the ram and getting another version. Is it possible this ram is just not compatible? Why does 1 stick work and not more? Maybe the motherboard is the problem?
    I am pretty new to this stuff, so please help me. This is a very weird frustrating issue.
    Thanks.

    Did you update both of your bioses?

    F3 or use LSD's custom one.

    That might help.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I updated my motherboards bios to the F3. Not sure what you mean by, "both" though... I'll look into this LSD custom one.

    When booting the machine press ALT + F12, this will copy the existing bios over the old backup bios. They say it improves stability.

    Thanks for the suggestions

    I did that. It copied over. I turned off my computer added another stick of ram and I got the same problem. On and off loop...
    I took out the second stick and the mother board would power off when it got to the bios screen. I had to re-seat that one stick and then everything is stable again with just the one.

    But this is the routine i've been going through

    Open to any other suggestions!

    Thanks.

    p.s.

    I might resort to buy this ram:
    Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL

    Because it was on gigabytes ram support list for this motherboard. And maybe that would just be easier. Extremely frustrating though.

    have you test each memory stick for errors with memtest86+? If both sticks work just fine separately, what are you voltage settings?

    Please grab a template for you bios from the link in my sig. fill it out with the current settings that are failing with 2 sticks. you may need to increase qpi/vtt voltage. Please post your full settings so we can better advise you on how to correct the problem.

    You could try slightly increasing the RAM voltage. For example: 1.60V.

    Can you be more specific about the settings you apply?

    Thanks again! Im also using windows 7 home premium 64bit.
    I've tweaked the DRAM Voltage from 1.4-1.6v and that didn't help me get the other sticks in...
    As you can see I would really like to use all 16 gigs of ram. I do VFX work and 4 gigs is just not enough.
    I noticed my QPI/VTT is very low. Maybe that is the culprit?

    Let me know if you need more info!

    Yes why is it so low? Try default up to 1.2v.
    Also I suggest you begin with XMP disabled or at least 8-8-8-24 timings.
    What is BIOS Profile VTT?
