    Question GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 RAM Problem

    Hello forum,

    I have 12GB of RAM(please see my specs) on my computer and every time I power on the computer, under "Verifying DMI pool data...", it will say "Detecting DRAM size"(which is identical to the "Recovering lost DRAM size" in older BIOS versions, I believe). And after that, it will restart.

    The whole process above loops for 3 times, then for the 4th time it will not show that detecting DRAM size message, instead it will allow me to boot into Windows immediately like normal, after passing the "Verifying dmi pool data".

    I have used memtest to check my memory and nothing is wrong with them. Also, I have checked for bent CPU interface pins and there is none. I guess I should tinker a little bit with the RAM voltage, the multiplier values, etc in the BIOS?

    I am very sorry about this question. I must say that I have no knowledge at all when it comes to hardware.

    My hardware specs:
    GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 (FH BIOS, which is the newest)
    i7 950
    12GB RAM(2x Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G and 2x Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G)
    1x WD500GB HDD
    1x WD1TB HDD
    power supply 600W

    Thanks very much and have a good day!

    it could be down to mixing different dim sizes? 4gb x 2 and 2gb x 2

    usually its better to run equal sized dims,how much qpi/vtt and dram voltage is being used in the bios?

    Whoops, I have removed every ram stick and put them back again. And now it works
    I knew that it was a bad idea to mix them like that, but 2 of them are gifted to me so I have no choice at all.

    Thanks very much for your help anyway!

    First of all I want to thank everyone who helps to people who are facing problems.

    My PC configuration:

    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz
    M/B: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5 rev.2.0 BIOS FF3
    DRAM: Kingston KVR1333D3N9K3/6G 6GB PC3-10600 CL9 240-pin DIMM Kit (3x2GB) - 2 kits
    Graphics: GIGABYTE GV-R577SO-1GD ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB
    OS: Microsoft Windows 7 (6.1) Ultimate Edition 64-bit Service Pack 1 (Build 7601)

    After spent a lot of time I was not able to solve the problem with the detecting of DRAM size. After power up the memory detected only for channel 1 and 2 - 8GB instead 12 GB. After rebooting the memory size recognized correct - 12GB, but when Windows starts up I have BSOD.

    And I thought I found the problem and solved it - bended pins.
    But it did not help. And finally I was able to solve the problem after the fifth attempt to correct pin position (pin №1, see picture).

    I sincerely believe that DRAM detecting problems are almost always associated with poor contact between the processor and memory modules: 1. Bent pin/s on the processor socket; 2. Bad contact in the memory module slot.

    First pin (see picture). This pin was turned outwards. When I turned it back, I was not able to position it as needed (see picture). So I still had a problems with memory. In the end I lifted up the pin a bit with a small tweezers taking pins base, and then pressed at the end of the pin with a small screwdriver to position pin in the desired position.
    The second pin caused fewer problems.

    After the performed operations the memory detected with no problems.
