Gigabyte 890FX UD5 and ram voltage. There's a quirk, and I can't remember what it is!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm finally making the jump back to 8GB of ram. I have what is currently in my sig, and I'm looking to get these: link. I honestly have no idea if Ripjaw X's are better than the standard Ripjaw, but they're newer (?) so I figured I'd go with that. Enlighten me if its a mistake, or if there are better timings I could be getting for similar value.

ANYWAY, there's something about this motherboard and ram... and I can't remember what it is. But I'm staring at that 1.5V on the Ripjaw X, and it doesn't sit right. I know there's SOMETHING I should be remembering here.. and I recall doing this dance when I originally went for the Thuban. Something doesn't work, something changes, look out for something.... argh!

I know saying "i can't remember something" doesn't give you guys a damn clue, but if anybody knows what I'm referring to let me know! I'm pretty sure it was voltage related.

maybe it needs to be a 1.65v?


1.65v runs fine on AMD,

it just has problems on the Sandy Bridge platform running at 1.65

According to the Gigabyte website the DIMM slots are 1.5V, which is what the Ripjaw X's are rated for. Don't think that's it, but thanks!

Maybe it was the opposite of that, that the board was rating for 1.5V and the current ram I have is at 1.65V? Or that it shows up incorrectly in bios or something? Arghhhh what was it.

I am not sure if this will help you at all, but July of last year I built a system for someone with a GA-890FXA-UD5 revision 3.1 motherboard. I installed a Crucial 4GB kit of DDR3 1600 (specifically BL2KIT25664FN1608) which is rated for 1.65v. As you likely know with AMD systems, you have to manually set the RAM settings above the default (I forget what that is exactly) so I have it set to what I previously mentioned and the timings of 8-8-8-24 (in other words, the memory is not over clocked). So far it has been running fine. Just last Thursday we put another 4GB of the same memory in that system and as far as I know it is still running fine.

I run 12 gigabytes of RAM including 2x4 Ripjaws 1600 CL8 and 2x2 ECOs CL7. I could never stabilize my system at RAM speeds of 1600 MHz. I found MemTest86+ would fail if I looped test #5 over and over. I remember a reviewer on NewEgg mentioned that he had to tweak ProcOdt from 60 to 120 Ohms in order to stabilize his rig at the rated speeds. I don't know if that's the quirk you had in mind, but I thought I would mention it in case.

I have never tried this, mind you. I settled for 1412 MHz 8-8-8-24 @ 1.5v which has been perfectly stable for me.

Also I found the 4.0x RAM Multiplier is borked and causes a failed POST. I thought I was running into a base clock limitation for a while until I realized this.

Oh, and I'm actually running 1412 MHz 7-7-7-21-28 1T just to let you know.

Let me know what you find. It would help me if I decide to re-tweak things.

Well the new RAM came, and I'm having trouble getting a boot with my usual OC. Trying to run the stock ram settings (x5.333=1524mhz, 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5v) with my CPU @ 286x14. Won't post, running stock right now.

WISH I COULD REMEMBER THIS QUIRK! Argh. There's something I'm forgetting to do with this board!

Quite frankly I don't understand the problem. When boot fails it says I can either go into BIOS to change settings, or hit any key to continue with the default settings of 2800CPU, 2000HT, and 1333RAM. If I hit any key, I boot fine and that's how I'm typing this right now. If I go into bios and manually set THOSE EXACT SETTINGS, boot still fails and presents me with the same option. doh.gif
