    Default Help needed to boot EP45T-DS3R with 4 ram sticks

    Hi.

    Im trying to boot a EP45T-DS3R with 4 identical memory sticks (4 x 4GB), and tried many configurations in BIOS, but I have no luck. When using default values, the PC wont boot.

    The most succesful try let me get into Windows 7, but then I get random errors with big files unzipping.

    With 1 memory stick, the PC apparently goes well, but I dont tested it too much.

    Can someone help me configure BIOS settings? Now Im using optimized defaults values.

    Stability is my very first goal. Having that in mind, if possible, I would like to OC a little, let say 3,2GHz the CPU.

    These are the actual settings:

    Welcome to the forum.

    Your booting and stability problems are probably due to the MCH Core setting = AUTO.

    Before you make any more changes, boot your system with your current bios settings and post a cropped screen-shot that includes:


    With Memset press the >> icon to display both memory channels and press the SPD icon to display the pre-programmed Kingston memory timings.

    The above ET6 link for your motherboard can be accessed when you click on the Utility option near the bottom of the page and you will see:
    • version: B12.1122.1 -- 42.59 MB -- date: 2012/11/22

    With ET6, press the following tabs in this order: Tuner --> Advance --> Voltage
    I never let ET6 auto start when my system boots, I only run ET6 to create a screen-shot and then shut it down. In the past some posters complained of problems when ET6 was running while they were using their systems. The ET6 download link is the most recent version for your EP45T-DS3R system.

    You can run several instances of Cpu-z at the same time if you want to include two or more Cpu-z windows.
    Including the Cpu-z Mainboard screen is also useful because it shows us your current bios version.
    Cpu-z can be downloaded without creating an account on their website.

    Your screen-shot should have all the windows as close as possible because the forum's resolution with wide images often makes the posted image hard to read. To improve the resolution I never save images using the JPG file format. Image quality is better when you always save screen-shots using the PNG file format.

    HWiNFO's sensor only runtime option provides useful information that might help with spotting runtime information that might point to possible problems.

    MCH Core probably needs to be higher than 1.20 volts. If your current setting is 1.20 or lower, manually set it to 1.22 or 1.24 volts. If needed, up to 1.32 volts is OK, but your goal is to use the lowest setting that gives you system stability and no problems with booting your system.

    You will probably need to set DRAM Voltage = 1.57 volts.

    There are several other bios settings that might need tweaking but will get to those later.

    I'm including a cropped screen-shot of my Q9550 EP45-UD3P system:

    Hi and thanks for your support, ProfJim.

    Because of booting errors with optimized default values, I changed MCH Core to 1.24V and DRAM Voltage to 1.58, as you suggested.

    There is no >> icon in Memset. I guess because Im using only 1 memory module. Tried with 2 and 4 modules, but got BSOD booting windows. If needed, I can boot with all 4 modules using saved BIOS settings with several values modified that I was gathering in forums.

    You might have one or more defective memory modules and/or memory slots.

    Before you remove or install hardware inside your computer case, ALWAYS unplug the power supply's A.C. power cord from the wall outlet or from the back (i.e. outside) of your power supply. After you have unplugged this power cable, press and hold the on/off button on the front of the case for 15 seconds to dissipate any stored electrical power that remains in your system.

    Failure to follow these steps can damage your hardware!!

    There might be a problem with:
    1. lga771 to lga775 mod
    2. dirty or faulty memory slots and/or memory modules
    3. bent, burnt or damaged cpu socket pins and/or contact pads on the bottom of the cpu

    Read through all of the options before you decide which approach is the quickest and easiest to do.

    The first thing that I would do is to remove the memory modules and carefully inspect the slots for accumulated dirt or obvious damage, followed by a close inspection of each memory module. The quickest and easiest way to check the memory modules would be to test them a different system.

    Changing Static tRead Value (aka tRD) from 7 to 8 or 9 in the Channel A/B Timings sub menu in the bios might help with stability. Note, there are two of these adjustment, one in the channel A sub menu and one in the channel B sub menu. Always use the same value in both channels, even if your are only using one of the channels, that is, only one or two modules in the same channel. Lower tRD settings provide better performance but if tRD is too low your system might not boot or it won't be stable. Note: Performance Level is Memset's name for tRD.

    Your memory kits might not be compatible with your system. Have you found any official information from Kingston that your particular memory modules are compatible with your motherboard. Many memory manufacturers have deleted older ddr2 memory information from their websites and this might apply with some older ddr3 kits.

    The quickest and easiest approach might be to dumb down your system by setting to System Memory Multipler to 3.20x instead of 4.00x and you might need to lower your Cpu Clock ratio from 9.0x to 8.0x or 7.0x.

    If you have an LGA775 cpu, you could test it in your system to see if this helps.

    It is possible that one or more cpu socket pins are damaged and might be causing the problem. The only way to determine if this is the problem is to remove the cpu from the motherboard socket and very carefully inspect the socket's pins for broken, burnt and/or bent pins. Keep in mind that is often extremely difficult to spot bad pins until you have had some practice. Do a web search using bent LGA775 cpu socket pins and look closely at some of the examples. Many forum members could not find and damaged pins on their own and when they provided good, high resolution, close up photos were we could often find the bent pin(s).

    Remove and label each of your memory modules with a different label name such as A, B, C, D. Don't use 1, 2, 3 and four because it will be too easy to get confused with the number 1, 2, 3, and 4 memory slots. Install the A labeled module in memory slot 1 and see if your system boots OK and passes your zip file test. If there are no problems. Replace the A-module with the B memory module and repeat the test. Follow the same procedure with the C memory module and the D memory module in slot 1. Take notes about the results of each test.

    Now your need to repeat the same series of tests using only the #2 memory slot, followed by the #3 slot and finally with the #4 memory slot.

    Another option is to download Memtest86+ v5.1 freeware and create a bootable floppy, CD, DVD or USB bootdisk and bypass windows. Memtgest86+ is designed to test for memory hardware errors but this test will also generate errors when the memory timings and/or system voltages are not "close enough."

    Thanks ProfJim. I appreciate your help, and that you dedicate your time and knowledge to help others.

    I did not want to detail my past attempts with the bios so as not to extend my post.
    Before posting my question on TweakTown, I had configured the bios and ran the Memtest86 successfully with the 4 modules for 24 hours, and then the Orthos Prime for several hours. I also installed Windows 7 with that configuration.

    But a few days ago, when I downloaded TeamFortress2 from Steam, it gave me an error when I finished downloading the files, while Steam client was decompressing them. I repeated the download and the error was repeated, but in a different file. That made me think about a bios configuration problem, and that's why I decided to ask for help from someone who knew the subject, to config the bios with appropriate settings.

    I carefully read your hardware recomendations. I should say that I have some computers knowledge and I am extremely careful with the handling of the hardware, and could (almost) assure that the hardware is working without failures.

    Anyway, now I'll check the cpu and memory sockets.

    Following is a 16GB memset screenshot. Its from 10 minutes ago, with saved bios settings.

    I have to say, in addition, that the disk is a new SSD Corsair Force LE 240GB, so in principle I do not think it was a HD failure.

    I don't understand exactly what happened with the Steam downloads but it sounds like downloading the Steam files a second time while Steam was already decompressing the existing files result in corrupted files.

    Rather than tearing your hardware apart, can you revert back to the state you that win7 was in before you started with the Steam downloads? I don't know if using win7 to go back to an earlier (pre Steam) state will help, but if you have a full system backup of your boot drive that might work better, but you should make a full boot drive backup of your current boot drive just to be safe. I'm not familiar with gaming or the Steam system.

    I was under the impression that your mod 771 system was recently put together and that it hadn't had any stress testing. If you have a spare ssd or hard drive. It might be quicker and easier to install a clean win7 operating system and seeing how stable your system is without installing Steam. You should be able to delay activating the new win7 for up to 3 weeks and if necessary there are ways to further delay activating win7 for two or three additional 3 week periods if needed. A web search using: how to delay windows 7 activation should be fairly straight forward.

    It would be a very strange coincidence for a major hardware problem to happen while doing a major software install. I wouldn't be surprised if the Steam problem did cause some major operating system problems due to file corruption.

    Sorry for the delay, I'm with some work.

    It is not a problem to reinstall Windows. I have nothing to keep. But the question would be the same as that of my initial post: considering the hardware I have, what would be the correct configuration of memory voltages, MCH voltages, memory timings, and so on? From what I have read so far in forums and websites, these values are interrelated, but that is beyond my knowledge.

    For example, somewhere I read that the MCH voltage should not have a difference greater than 0.5V with the DRAM voltage, and the PCI Express Frequency should not be in Auto. Or that the DRAM voltage should not exceed 1.7V. Considering that, what would be the optimal configuration for my BIOS?

    First of all, sorry if I repeat myself, but I have the feeling that Im not explaining well because I am not a native English speaker.

    It is not a problem for me to do a stress test of the system. I have spare parts for all the components. The problem is that, with the optimized default values and the 4 modules, the PC does not start and beeps for memory errors. In order to start it, I have to load values that I was inferring from other posts, but that surely are not correct. When I started the thread I thought about presenting those values in the template, but it seemed better to start from scratch.

    I have read in several posts that the Gigabyte P45 + DDR3 mothers have many problems to handle the memory automatically, and they need to be configured manually. Well, I'm stuck there.

    Based on Kingston's specs for your memory, don't go higher than 1.60 volts for the ram setting. Some newer ddr3 memory modules are rated with slightly higher voltages.

    With LGA775 motherboards I have never seen a recommendation that MCH voltage should not be higher than the DRAM voltage + 0.5 volts. If this were true, this would mean that with 1.60 ram voltage, the maximum safe MCH core voltage would be 1.60 + 0.50 = 2.10 volts!!! As I recall MCH Core = 1.36 volts is the maximum recommendation.

    Here are two LGA775 recommendations that were widely used for many years:
    • the maximum safe CPU PLL voltage is 1.60 volts
    • Cpu Termination (aka VTT)should be at least 0.05 volts lower than Cpu Vcore voltage

    Pay attention to setups that are using 4GB modules and see what bios settings were used to get 2 x 4GB and 4 x 4GB systems stable.

    My approach would be:
    1. get the system stable with 2 x 4GB memory modules in memory slots 1 & 3
    2. remove both memory modules
    3. get the system stable with the other two 2 x 4GB memory modules in memory slots 1 & 3
    4. get the system stable with 2 x 4GB memory modules in memory slots 2 & 4
    5. install all four memory modules using the 1 & 3 modules and the 2 & 4 modules in alternate memory slots
    6. perform adequate stress testing for each step
