    Default UC RAM Timings fails

    Yo.
    I got a litte problem
    When I go into BIOS and set the memory timings to 3 or 4
    save and exit, the computer restarts 2-3 times,
    then I go into BIOS agian and everything are reset...

    Ive set the PCI mhz to 100 static and the CPU to 3 ghz static..

    Sys:
    CPU: Intel E8400
    GPU: Nvidia 8800GT
    RAM: Corsair 2*2GB, PC6400 @ 800mhz
    MOBO: Gigabyte P35-S3G

    Thanks
    Kakes

    It has been a while since I have played with Gigabyte boards, but does the CMOS reset automatically when you attempt something that causes a failed boot? It kinda sounds like it to me... you are setting whatever memory timing to a value that doesn't allow the system to boot, so it automatically resets it to a default (safe) value and reboots the system.

    thats right...
    but I have to UC the RAM to OC the CPU....
    any suggestions?

    I can't help much with proper memory timings, but if you go to Advanced Settings you will see several parameters which have to be Disabled to stop the resetting to default values. In Adv Settings -Essentially all should be disabled EXCEPT the memory protect and thermal monitor. The reboot will still occur if the memory settings are not good, but the setting will not be altered.

    Reboot to default in 2-3 cycles means incorrect timings. What do you mean when you say "set the memory timings to 3 or 4"?

    Please post me your full specs, and a link to your ram and fill this out with what you are trying to use and I will advise >>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    For a stock E8400 at 333 FSB to run Ram at 800MHz you would want to use the 2.40 memory multiplier
