    Been a while now, the Leds on the Motherboard for the CPU are always on, (Green, Yellow, Red) all at once 24/7..

    err... hmmm... what do you have in your RAM slots? 2x4GB sticks and 1x2GB stick?

    if that is the case, I'd recomment that you replace that 2GB stick and buy a single stick of whatever brand and make that Dual channel kit is. that would get your system from Dual Channel to Tripple channel as it should be.

    now for the LED's which ones are you refering to? left of the ram slots by the CPU socket? or on the the right side of the RAM slots? and if on the right which ones? top right or the other set just below it?

    Vin

    have you at any point been using dynamic energy/power saving software,i think thats what its called,its a gigabyte utility in that theirs an option in that to turn off the mb led lights or have them lit

    voltages look fine

    nevermind,its only if you have it installed,actually the cpu voltage is a bit high 1.3v for stock cpu clocks but not dangerous

    you could certainly improve on it,look in the bios and set cpu voltage to normal,and then see how much is being used in easytune,what speed is your memory? your only running it at 1066mhz atm which is the default speed

    i dont know much about these specs and stuff :( but the leds are related to the voltage of the cpu?
    whats difference with high voltage and low voltage?
    memory speed totally no idea what they are :S

    sorry late reply i was st school

    pretty sure they are cpu voltage led's

    well higher voltage usually results in higher temps,so its best to try and lower them asmuch as possible while still being 100% stable,to test for stability you can run intel burn test 5 runs and or prime95 blend test

    to adjust your ram speed to 1600mhz which im guessing your ram speed is(it will be printed on the ram stick along with the voltage)you can look in m.i.t section of the bios and set spd system memory multiplier to 12x

    then look for cpu voltage and set that to normal(it will say normal in the list)

    and maybe set qpi/vtt voltage to 1.25v due to the memory now running at 1600mhz instead of 1066mhz

    look through each bios page in the m.i.t section and youll see each setting

    your cpu is using 1.3v atm but with some tweaking im pretty sure you could get that down to 1.25v maybe even 1.2v which will lower cpu temps and might turn off the led light

    err... hm... that's the CPU Temp LED... Red means your CPU is above 80 degrees Celcius... that's a near catastrophic temperature...

    in EasyTune, click on the "HW Monitor" tab then click on temperatures.... What is that reporting for the CPU temperature?

    here is your manual: http://download.gigabyte.ru/manual/m...d3r_v2.0_e.pdf

    go to Page 22....

    Set the CPU voltage to normal, and see how it goes... I'd re-seat the CPU cooler and possibly change the thermal paste. Everyone has a preference, I like Arctic Silver 5.

    you have Temp issues my friend, and that CPU voltage is directly related. Also once you fix that your computer will run a whole lot bette too because temps above 80 degrees the CPU throttles itself a lot to keep the temperatures in check... resolve that and life will be a lot better.

    Any specific way to apply new thermal paste?
    also the board is overclocked by default is that why the voltage is high?

    you're right, its above 80 :O its at 90 Degrees
