New Custom build issues. i7-2600k + GTX580 + ASRock Z68

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm new to these forums and I've been having issues with my new build.

First of all, my new build consists of:

CPU: i7-2600K 3.4GHz (OCed to 4.8GHz) 1.45v

Motherboard: ASRock Z68 PROFESSIONAL GEN3

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) F3-14900CL9Q-16GBXL

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

GPU: PNY XLR8 VCGGTX580XPB-LC-CPU GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V v2.91

I was able to install all this but had big issues with my motherboard reading all 4 sticks of ram. I was able to use 3 at first. My motherboard automatically changed the timings to 1600 instead of leaving them at the stock 1866. I changed it to 1333 because the motherboard would still fail to start with a debug code of 45. At the 1333 setting I was able to boot up with no issues.

So now I got my machine to start functioning, which lead to my next problem. Once I play a high intense game, such as BF3 at max settings, the monitor I have (HP2009m) starts to buzz and the screen looks like it has waves coming down from the top.

I noticed when the GPU is being stressed out, the monitor starts to get this way. I also did a Windows Experience Index test; and when the GPU would run the 3D settings the same issue occurred.

Does anyone know what could be the cause of this?

Thanks in advance.

Just now I tried to run Prime95 and got this:

What would this mean?

It could mean a lot of things. You did a fresh install and installed all the latest drivers from the manufacturers websites right ?
Also, let's get everything running correctly at stock settings before getting ahead of ourselves with overclocks.

What he said, also try just with 1 stick of ram at a time.

I did try everything at stock and it did work; except the RAM. The RAM only worked right when I used one stick and set the timings to the RAMs standard, which is 1866 at 1.5v. I wanted to test it with all 4 sticks of RAM. I've only been able to get them to work when I use them at 1333 each.

If I use the RAM with other settings I get the MB error code of 45.

I got this quote from another post:


Debug code shows "45", it maybe related to your memory.

Please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
1. Please insert your memory module in the white DRAM slot then try again.
2. Please unplug your memory and replug in then make sure your memory module is installed properly.
3. Please only install a stick memory by turns to check your two stick memory are fine.
4. If possible, please kindly change other memory for testing.

If the problem still cannot be solved, please kindly contact your local dealer to check your system.
Thanks!

Have a nice day

I've done these steps too, and to no avail.

And I did download the MBs BIOS and the GPUs newest Drivers.

Have you checked the qvl for your memory ? I'm sure its compatible, but a quick glance can't hurt. Also, make sure they are in the correct slots. Is is a 4x4 kit or two same model 2x4 kit ?

Being that you're having memory issues and also gpu or pci express slot issues it seems obvious the mobo is the culprit. I would give asrock a call.

I've been hearing a lot of issues with this particular MB in the case of Memory issues.

What's this qvl?

The RAM I got is a set of 4. They are each 4gb each.

Quality vendors list. Check the website to make sure your RAM is compatible. Also check asrock forums for similar problems and hopefully pointers.

I checked both asrock and newegg, they both state its compatible with the motherboard. This is what it said on newegg:

Quote:
Designed for 2nd Generation Intel Core Processors and the Z68/P67 motherboards

Optimized 1.5V low voltage for the Intel Sandy Bridge platforms

Compatible with Intel P55 & AMD Llano platforms

Intel XMP ready
What can clarify if it is the motherboard or not? Would the RAM not being able to function right have something to do with the buzzing on the monitor? And does the PSU have anything to do with all this?
