Long time lurker, first time poster.

Recently, I decided to take the plunge and replace my 950 with a Xeon. I bought an X5670 a few weeks ago, and it just arrived.

The system it's supposed to go to is as follows:
X58A-UD3R R2.0, BIOS FF
12 GB 1333 RAM
1250W Seasonic PSU
whatever Radeon 7900 series card I have lying around

But when I put the processor in, I have the following two problems:
- Difficulty booting: system goes through its anti-humidity power cycle, but does not power up fully the second time (some lights just turn on, and that's it)
- Can only find 2 RAM sticks; the system can detect all 6, but only the first two are enabled, and the system throws "Detecting DRAM size" messages after POST

When I put back the 950, the system power cycles properly and can enable all six sticks of RAM.

Is this a sign of a defective CPU, or is my board allergic to the processor?

@ED570-550

You might need to update the bios. The i7-980 needs version FH according to Gigabyte:

Now that you mentioned it, I made a mistake in the original post. Board BIOS is FH (including backup BIOS)

When you replaced the CPU did you reset the BIOS?
You may have to pull the PSU plug from the wall, pull the 3.3v battery out, hit the start button to discharge the caps on board.
Then jump the BIOS reset pins for 20 seconds. That is a for sure BIOS reset and may clear up any new CPU or memory issues.

Yeah, try the above but it sounds like you may have a bad chip if doing that doesn't get it working. The RAM slots not working is the kind of thing that pops up with a bad CPU or bend pins. You shouldn't have any bent pins, your other chip is working you say and bent pins is more of an issue with the mac pro swaps and such. People put lidded cpus into sockets designed for unlidded cpus and end up crushing them down too tight and ruining their daughter boards. In the case they bent a bunch of pins but it still works usually they have lost a few banks of their ram and only a few slots work. I think your chip might be a dud. Id give it another go, and do the reset who knows maybe it'll work the next time around.

GL hope you figure it out.

So I have a bit of an issue.

Installed the Gigabyte GA-X58A-OC lastnight, installed the second 980Ti that I got back from RMA, new Coollab Ultra TIM, too.

Turn it on, everything goes as normal, install the motherboard drivers (Lan, sound, chipset, etc.)

Do a restart.

C1 code and black screen, keeps rebooting like three times, then stays on, black screen and C1 code the whole time.

C1 = DRAM blah blah blah, so I took the RAM out, tried each stick, same code, same problem.

Cleared the CMOS, took the battery out, left it unplugged for a couple hours, turned it on just now, same problem.

Any ideas?

Maybe it's auto setting the wrong RAM ratio? Do you have any generic 1333 ram laying around?
post #6478 of 13062
I don't, but I could get a stick on amazon prime in a couple days for a few bucks, probably.

Just read a post where someone had a similar issue on the UD7 and reseated the CPU

I'll try that next, I guess.

Weird thing is that it was working just fine until I installed the drivers.

C1 is what I always see when I boot mine. C1, then it'll eventually post a C3 and then count to 100, you get the boot screen when it gets to either 50 or 75, I can't remember.

ok, so maybe it's just taking an insanely long time to boot for some reason?
