    Okay so to add on that, changes for your settings:
    Code:
    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [3..00A] <<< if no go keep 2.66] 
    
    tRP ---------------------7 --------- : [5] 
     tRAS ------------------- 24 --------- : [15] 
     
    Advanced Timing Control 
     tRRD ------------------- 4 ---------- : [Auto] 
     tWTR ------------------- 4 ---------- : [Auto] 
     tWR ---------------------8 ---------- : [Auto] 
     tRFC ------------------- 68 --------- : [Auto] 
     tRTP ------------------- 4 ---------- : [Auto] 
     Command Rate (CMD) ------------------ : [Auto] 
    
    
    Channel A & B 
    Static tRead Value --------10------------- : [7] <<< if works try 7 
     
    
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.10V ------- : [1.16-1.2] << try the lower go higher if needed only 
    DRAM Voltage ------------ 1.80V ------- : [2.0-2.1] << try the lower go higher if needed only

    Question Re: GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200

    Max,
    I'm confused.
    You posted a CPU-Z screen shot showing a Q8200, but your full bios posting says: Core2 Quad E8200.
    Post #7 shows only two cores in the HWMonitor screen shot.
    You don't have your cpu model listed for your signature for the EP45-DS3R.

    If one memory module is defective, your least expensive solution is to RMA your memory.
    I suggest that you test your memory at stock settings, using Memtest86+ v4.20. Run at least one full test loop (8 tests) and if there are no errors, run test #5 for 10 - 15 loops by pressing: c 1 3 5 enter 0 (zero) after your full loop test has completed. If you are testing with two memory modules @ 1066MHz, set MCH Core = 1.22 or 1.24 with your Mushkin 996599 memory. If the Memtest86+ tests run without errors, boot into windows run:
    • 10 loops of LinX or IBT using 1535 or 1792MB of memory.
    • Run Prime95 Large FFT test overnight.
    • Run Prime95 Blend test overnight.

    If any of these tests have errors, post a screen shot of the error and don't continue testing.

    I suggest that you first load OPTIMIZED bios defaults and then apply the settings in http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...tml#post295784, post #5. I recommend that you use the manual settings suggested in the post with stock settings.

    How old is your Antec TP3-650 power supply?
    note: Your system will have excellent performance running your 4GB memory from 800 - 875MHz using 4-4-4-12 memory timings.
    Don't get hung up on needing to run much higher memory speeds for maximum performance.
    Using the stock Intel cpu heatsink will severely limit how high you can overclock your system.

    I just found your BSOD post in the BSOD Error Codes thread.
    I've moved your post here, and it is now post #22 in this thread.

    Just so you know Max, Mushkin still has Blackline memory, you may need to buy at other online shops or ebay though as I'm not sure if they still sell DDR2 directly.

    But, keep in mind, Mushkin offers lifetime warranty!! So you can RMA your set with them and they will exchange it for you for another DDR2 set, you may need to pick a different model # though, but I'm sure they'll still be able to offer you a similarly timed model, heatsink type really doesn't matter as long as it's the same timings. They'll probably offer you 996760 if you RMA your current set, since it's CAS 5 timings.

    Hi ProfJim I changed most of the mistakes that you mentioned except for deleting the picture of two cores temp(from my other rig and was repling to another poster-will try to stay on track now). The CPU model is yorkfield date on release is March 2008 As far as the Power supply it may be several years old exactly how many I cannot say for sure. I guess that something I shoud keep track of for my own records an to know when its time to replace. I am getting a new screenshot set up for temperatures now.
    Update I am running some of the first tests now.......First reloading optimised defaults and resetting to conservative values that were reccomended.

    Most current Antec power supplies are very good or excellent.
    I'm not sure about some of their older models, such as the TP3 models.
    Their were some problems with psu capacitors several years ago from various power supply manufacturers.

    yeah thanks for the info ProJim i can google search my PS for any other related posts. BTW while testing RAM should I try the slot that the other RAM stick when bad in next? Just a thought about general RAM testing in different slots

    Whie fixing your E8400 OC you managed to delete the board model.
    How the settings work for you?
    And why not puush the E8400 to at least 3.6GHz?

    Wow Ubuntu browser loaded this page a lot quicker than Win XP's IE8 I was advised to return to stock settings while testing with memtest. Also test in windows with other stress tests for Pro Jim. Will try your settings soon as I finish testing. Ya I just saw that I deleted one board model too oops As far as pushing the CPU that will be done when I put the CPU cooler on. Last attempt, I could not remove the main power connector from the board(sometimes a fine screw driver will help to pry a litte here or there but I could not find it). Also noted that I may need to do a little cleaning of the intake screen as well. thanks thermaltake for the intake screen helps a lot.
    UPDATE:
    Woops you are talking about the UD3LR board and CPU sorry The power sockets are being checked in the back room right now so its not hooked up. First test passed in memtest for one loop and now trying the second test (memtest)

    Yes the E8400. It's easy to OC and 3.6GHz with Mugen 2 is not realy much for it.
    The memory may be limiting, but you may get to 3.7-3.8GHz with it.
    I believe the E8400 can do 3.3GHz or even more with stock(normal) vcore, and cooler.
    Is it E0 or C0 stepping?
