    Thumbs up EP35C-DS3R won't boot with new DDR3 ram

    Hi and welcome everybody Im new here.

    I have a problem and I hope someone will be able to resolve it. So
    Im trying to install DDR3 on my EP35C-DS3R board but pc doesnt boot. Everything is working perfect with DDR2 rams.
    First DDR3 I've tried was Crossair and now Kingston and the same situation system dont boot. What can be the problem?

    Hi and welcome to forum.
    I suggest you to reset BIOS to Optimized/Save defaults first (with DDR2).
    Then insert only 1 stick of DDR3 in proper slot and try.
    Be sure you used latest BIOS.

    Using ep35c-ds3r ddr3 spd site:forums.tweaktown.com search terms, google provided links for TweakTown threads that should have useful information. The link for these results is ep35c-ds3r ddr3 spd site:forums.tweaktown.com - Google Search

    Booting with Stasio's suggestions, you should be able to boot into windows.
    If you post a cropped CPU-Z screen-shot, it will display the manufacturer's specifications that should work with both modules installed.
    You will probably need to increase (G)MCH Over Voltage Control to +0.10 or +0.20 for 2x2GB of memory.
    Several other bios tweaks will probably be needed.
    If your system still won't boot, provide a link to the Kingston web page for your specific ram kit.

    Default Re: EP35C-DS3R won't boot with new DDR3 ram

    Hi Guys


    Thank You very much for Your replies. i did put my hardware specs in registration form but seems like it wasn't saved (maybe there is some problem, im using opera).

    So cpuz:
    EP35C-DS3R won't boot with new DDR3 ram-cpuz-jpg

    I did try with one stick in both slots separately, no change. Is the bios resetting its settings when it tries to boot and dont boot in 2 chances?

    I have the F4 bios so its the most recent.
    Its no way that the second DDR3 (8GB (2x4GB) HyperX DDR3 1333MHz DIMM CL9) i bought (crossair previous) is faulty, i dont believe that im so unlucky :P.
    Anyway I will try taking battery out and start with only 1 stick, but i think ive already tried everything its possible.
    thanks again and fingers crossed!

    2 x 4GB of DDR3 memory probably won't work with your motherboard.
    The specifications for your motherboard say:
    Code:
    DDR3: 
    
    1. 2 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 4 GB of system memory
    2. Dual channel memory architecture
    3. Support for DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules
    DDR2:
    1. 4 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory(Note 1)
    2. Dual channel memory architecture
    3. Support for DDR2 1200 (O.C.)/1066/800/667 MHz memory modules
    I wouldn't trust running with 8GB of ddr3 memory in your system.

    I'm happily running 4 x 2GB of DDR2-1066 memory in my P35-DS3L/E6300 (R0) and P35-DS4/Q9650 overclocked systems.

    Btw,
    here is latest BIOS:
    GA-EP35C-DS3R - F5b

    Edit:
    DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 4 GB of system memory !!
    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-EP35C-DS3R (rev. 2.1)

    So,you should buy 2x2GB memory.

    Hey guys


    The point is i found a loads of posts on the other forums that people successfully installed 8gb of DDR3 on P35C-DS3R and on extnesnion of P35 - mine mobo EP35C-DS3R. Could it be a problem with Intel E8500 and DDR3?

    Post a link to the Kingston memory specifications for your specific memory kit.
    Once we have the information, we might be able to provide some settings that might let your system boot with one memory module at first.
    You will need to do some serious stress testing to determine if the bios settings are stable.
    You should start with non-overclocked, stock cpu speeds initially.
    Once both memory modules are stable when they are both installed, you can then try to overclock your cpu again.

    You've got to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run, especially with an unsupported memory setup.

    Did you find any EP35-xxxx posts that used your memory kit? If yes, please provide links to the post or thread.

    Hey again

    First DDR3 ive tried without the success
    Dabs Ireland - Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333Mhz CL9 Value Select Desktop Memory Kit (CMV8GX3M2A1333C9)

    Kingston Kit:

    Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Dual Channel Kit (KHX1333C9D3B1K2/8G) [KHX1333C9D3B1K2/8G]

    EP35C-DS3R won't boot with new DDR3 ram-wp_000641-jpg

    And Yes I did tried installing those RAM on clear default settings (not OC), unfortunately I cant find the post where I saw those DDR3 used on that mobo.
