post #3231 of 12377
Hey guys, just about to take the plunge and buy a UD7 off amazon.co.uk and update my horridly old mobo.
I was hoping people who owned the board and have had good experiences with ram (that didn't cost a truckload) could help me out? I don't think I'll be overclocking the RAM any time soon and was thinking of getting some G.Skill 2x4GB 1600Mhz. Something like this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-Ripjaws-240-pin-PC3-12800-unbuffered/dp/B00339X1EM/ref=sr_1_3?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1339951195&sr=1-3

Or

http://www.amazon.co.uk/G-Skill-Channel-9-9-9-24-Extreme-Profile/dp/B0079NRZHC/ref=sr_1_6?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1339951195&sr=1-6

Suggestions welcome, reasoning even more so biggrin.gif

As an aside, do the Intel ram sticks with Intel XMPs matter? I installed some Intel ram in my bros AMD triple core and he's had no problems for over 8 months.

I have the gskil ripjaws on my UD3 for over a year already and no problem with them. They have the correct size to be below of my noctua D14.

I have been two different G.Skill kits of RAM on my UD3 for over a year and never had a RAM problem that was PEBKAC(overclocking) related.
The main RAM set up I use is two of these G.Skill Eco kit's for a total of 8 gig's, Almost no overclocking headroom but is 100% stable at stock clocks and GPU oc'd.
The second kit of RAM I use with it is for overclocking. its G.Skill RipJaw's. Overclock's well on both my machines. In my experience you can't go wrong with anything from G.Skill, Some of their stuff won't overclock to save its life but its always stable. RipJaw's kits seem to OC better than their other kits.

ET6 = Easy Tune 6?

I'd like to know what changed, but i don't think it's that important for overclocking.

F9 is out for the UD7. Seems a minor change although this is the only one bigger than 1.14 MB. ET6 and memory adds.

I bought an fx-8150, I had a Phenom II 975, but I wanted to update my bios. So I was on f6g and I downloaded @bios, and F8. I had the @bios program on my sdd/ C: drive, but the F8 bios I dl'd was on my hdd/ e: drive. After I ran the program( I selected the file called ga-990fx f8) it would not post. It never came back on. My questions are, am I screwed, do I have to rma? Or will they even take it? Any help from you guys would be awesome.

did you reset the bios?

disconnect power remove cmos battery, wait 5 mins, replace battery plug back in. see if it posts.

if not

remove all but one memory stick/ video card/cpu. try again.

This is a fitment question. I have a HAF 932 with a triple radiator inside the roof, & an Ultra ULT-HE1000X PSU inside on the floor. A Crosshair IV ATX MB just fits. Where is the UD7 larger? Is it the height of the board from floor to roof, is it wider from the IO panel to the HD cages, or is it both? Does anyone a picture of a water-cooled UD7 in a similar configuration?

Edit: Looks like the Gigabyte E-ATX MB on the right side is wider, from the IO panel to the HD cage area.
