    Default Gigabyte wierd issue. fearful.

    Hello,

    I am new to the forums and don't know where else to turn. I have an issue with my motherboard/ram. I am currently using a GA-EP45-UD3LR motherboard, with Mushkin Blackline 1066mhz ram. This issue only occurs when my electric goes out at random. I use a high quality surge protector. A few times during the month my electric company chooses to randomly turn off my electric for a second. When this happens and I'm on my pc, my ram timings get reset from 5-5-5-15 to 7-7-7-24. I cannot figure out a solution to this. My electric company claims it's for routine maintenance.

    I am in fear one day it will damage my ram and or my motherboard.

    if anyone has any idea or knows a solution to this i would be greatly thankful.

    thank you,

    Vincent.

    It's the sudden power loss that's probably causing timings to go back to default? Maybe this is what you need

    Duplicate the power loss. Yank its power cord from the wall. Do settings change? Then it is not something that will be solved externally. A battery inside that machine is not saving those settings.

    All computers have superior protection inside their power supply. But a protector too close to the machine (and too far from earth ground) can bypass that protection. Literally connect noise directly to your motherboard.

    Why do you know it is a high quality protector? Price? A power bar that sells for $60 in the big box store or for $150 under the Monster label also sells for maybe $7 in a supermarket. View specification numbers. All are equivalent. Some are just profit centers. All have a similar circuit that can bypass existing protection inside a computer. Could also explain those setting changes.<o:p></o:p>

    Please don't yank the plug,its the worst thing you can do to a pc,true your psu has built in protection but it has a chance of failing and you risk damaging mb and CPU ect

    It's very easy to buy the wrong type or size of ups.
    Do a web search using:
    • uninterruptible power supply faq
    • uninterruptible power buyer's guide

    Most major ups manufacturers have helpful information on their websites.
    I've been using two different APC ups units to protect both of my systems for over four years.
    My APC 750VA, 450 watt ups provides 15 - 17 minutes of run time for my computer and monitor if there is a power outage. I have about six electrical "hiccups" each year where the power grid farts for less than one second and my systems just keep on running. Many ups models let you configure the ups to automatically shut down your system when there is only xx minutes of run time remaining. To keep the ups battery fully charged, the ups should always be left on.

    Every piece of hardware that is connected to either of my computer systems has all of their electrical plugs connected to the ups. If one unit, such as a printer, is not protected by the ups, an electrical surge could damage the printer and your computer.

    All ups sockets offer surge protection, but not all of the sockets provide unterruptible power.

    If I were buying a ups unit today, the models made by CyberPower offer the best bang for the buck.
    Check out Enthusiast Power Protection: Four-Way 900 W UPS Roundup : Power Protection Or Rage Prevention? at Tom's Hardware for an informative ups comparison.

    Less expensive (under ~$150) ups units use a modified stepped sine wave output that might prevent your system from waking from sleep or won't keep your system running when there is a momentary power interruption. This is usually due to a poorly engineered power supply, not the ups. Check out the CyberPower website for more information. Their "PFC" models prevent this possible problem. I've used three different Seasonic made power supplies and haven't had this problem with my modified stepped sine wave APC units.

    You will need to spend $150 or more to find a "pure" sine wave model that will work fine with virtually every psu model.
    Use the forum's search feature to find some of my other posts dealing with ups information. Try searching for uninterrupt.

    Check out Newegg.com - CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD UPS 1500VA / 900W PFC compatible Pure sine wave. If you want to buy this unit, check out Dell's website where they often have the best price. Shipping cost and sales tax charges should be factored in to where you buy your ups.

    If sudden power loss damages any electronics, then it was defective when purchased. And power company power off had already done that damage.

    Power off by any means is not destructive to any properly designed electronics. That was required by international design standards long before the IBM PC even existed. If yanking its power cord causes damage, then do it before its warranty expires. And then replace it with something from a more responsible manufacturer.

    That power cord disconnect is a best test to locate and eliminate setup changes.

    The whole UPS's job is to protect valuable data and hardware from damage or loss caused by sudden power loss,where the pc hasn't had time to shutdown software and components properly,that's why its screwing his ram timings up,it can also corrupt data on your hdd's,so the last thing you wanna do is replicate the problem,at the end of the day its your pc and wallet
