    Default GIGABYTE X58A UD3R (Rev 1.0) - Bluescreening, Graphical Studdering

    Hi all, I've been lurking here for a little bit trying to see if I can figure out my issue, however my knowledge of overclocking or BIOS features isn't what it used to be (nor was it ever all that impressive to begin with). Anyway, I put this rig together in August of last year. Here are the specs:

    CPU: Intel i7 930 2.8 Ghz
    Mobo: GA X58A UD3R
    RAM: OCZ Gold Series PC3 12800 8-8-8 @1.65v 3x2 GB sticks (PN: OCZ3G1600LV6GK)
    Boot drive: OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 50 GB
    Main storage drive: WD Caviar HDD 500 GB
    GPUs: 2x XFX Radeon HD 5870s in Crossfire
    PSU: Antec Earthwatts 750 watt

    Problem:
    Ever since I built this rig, I had frequent stability issues due to the SDD firmware being crap and the memory issues I'm still having. I've since corrected the SSD problem by updating the firmware however I still occasionally get memory-related blue screens. I can't recall the error codes exactly but I'm fairly certain they were memory related. Occasionally, my computer itself stutters but it's more drawn-out, it's a very quick lockup but it usually pulls itself back out again. The instances when it doesn't - BSOD. In any case, I also run Battlefield 3. When I crank it from high to ultra on the graphics settings, I start to get stutter. I check the FPS counter and it always stays well into the green, anywhere between 60-110 FPS. However I get fast chopping. The graphical stutter I get is not like the lockups I get while on the desktop or using a browser. I read somewhere that this might be due to memory voltages being too low. I've checked the bios, and my memory seems to be at 1066 and I've found out that this is a known issue with the motherboard. Now, my question to you guys is; what can I change in the settings in order to correct these problems? I found the BIOS template and I went ahead and copied down all the settings that are shown in my BIOS at the moment. I've never tried to mess around with these settings, so why it's set to "Turbo" and not "Standard" is beyond me. Only thing I've ever changed in there was the boot order and the AHCI enabling in order to get the SSD to run properly. I underlined/emboldened all my settings that differed from the template if that helps.

    CPU = Not sure what the model # is, I just know it's an i7 930 at 2.8 Ghz
    Motherboard = X58A UD3R Rev. 1.0
    BIOS Version = Not sure, whichever one shipped with this version of the motherboard, I haven't updated it
    Ram = copypasta from above - OCZ Gold Series PC3 12800 8-8-8 @1.65v 3x2 GB sticks (PN: OCZ3G1600LV6GK)

    Try QPI/VTT in the range 1.225-1.35v.
    If you also want the memory to run at DDR-1600 instead 1066 as it is now you need to set SMM x12, standard timings 8-8-8-24, and DRAM Voltage 1.65v

    IMPORTANT,i would update your bios,it will improve ssd plus other things,the one that shipped with your mb will be ancient by now,heres the latest beta bios,its 100% safe to use

    Thank you very much for the help! I'll change it around and post back with the results. A quick question though, when I go to set my timings to 8-8-8-24, what will that do to the numbers in the advanced timing control?

    From the first page of M.I.T its the 3rd choice in the list right above where you set voltages. In that screen scroll down 1 or 2 options and set it to quick this will set all chanels to the values you set for Chanel 1.

    Advanced timings won't matter so much,I never bother setting them as auto works fine,

    Try QPI/VTT in the range 1.225-1.35v.
