i7 3930K RAM Limitations & Issues - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ran a memory test prior to swapping out my RAM for a new ram kit, I am now running Patriot 4x4 16GB at 1600Mhz native speed.
The test below was run when I had the g.Skill RipJaws 4x4 16gb 2133 Kit.

Intel walked me through a bios update using the (SI0460P.BIO) file. Once this update was installed the system
seems to have stabilized. I am currently installing the complete national geographic collection, my system
once froze during part of that installation but since last night the system has been stable. I am currently
on disc 6 of this installation so far so good!

Despite the first Bios update, the second bios update from Intel seems to have stabilized the system.

Intel directed me to download the following bios files from their support website:
SI0424P.BIO
SI0460P.BIO
SI0525P.BIO
SI0553P.BIO
at the following address: Intel BIOS updates for DX79TO Motherboard

The process was simple enough, copy the files to a USB key and on reboot keep hitting the F7 key.
A BIOS reflash screen came up asking me to select a source so I selected the USB key I named Intel Flash
and selected the first update 424 then the second SI0460P.BIO, once the 460 image was flashed into the
BIOS chip the system seems to have become stable.
