gigabyte boards are very good at setting timing, but its always good to set your own, something it differs a little motherboard to motherboard, but i think you already know that

Welcome and added to the owners list!

Still running stock because this board won't stay stable period. I still have the phenomenon encountered on X58A-UD7 (Rev. 1.0) boards where the system restarts twice, and on the third time comes up stating there's a voltage issue and it's automatically changed my mem to 1066 when it should be 1600. Funny thing is if I go in and save and exit without any changes, no problem. If I reboot after running for a while, no problem. It only happens on initial startup. I've seen several reports of this in the thread and honestly, I'm really wondering if the F7 BIOS is worth even trying at this point. When a system is this unreliable even at stock settings...I mean the only thing I'm using is XMP profile 1...no overclocking. Intel Turbo Boost Tech isn't even turned on. Gigabyte's helpdesk is unfortunately useless in this. Suggestions? Links to specific posts? Guide me, oh Overclocking Gurus!

I'd LIKE to be able to overclock, but I found if I even set the performance setting under M.I.T. from Turbo to Extreme (Turbo is default, but Standard prevents more of the triple boot issue), it continually reboots until I clear my CMOS! This is intolerable!

Hey all,

I need your expertise. I was tasked with building some high end machines for my work. I have just finished building the second one. The first has been up and running for a few months now (on and off use).

On the 2nd computer after starting for the first time the cpu temp is 60-65 C while in the bios. This is extremely to hot for this system at idle. What sealed the deal was after installing w7 64bit and updating all drivers I did a stress test (prime95). After running for less then one min the cpu temp was 98 C. At that point I immediately stopped the test and the cpu temp dropped back down to 55-65 C (idle). Below are the systems specs:

i7 960 (running at 3.20Ghz, stock)
Gigabtye GA-X58A-UD7 Rev 2 (I updated the bios to FB)
Corsair Dominator 12Gb (1600) 3 x 4Gb (but only running at 1066)
PNY Quadro 4000
2 x WD 600GB Raptors (Raid 0 on SATA 3)
Antec 12 hundred case
Antec 850w power supply

If you need any other info. let me know and I can get it

I have built a few computers (for personal, friends and family) but I wouldn't consider myself an expect.

I am not sure really what to do at this point. I have been searching on google and reading the forums and haven't come across anything that has helped. I am not looking to OC this system, I am just looking to get normal cpu temps.

If I had to guess, I would say i7 and RAM are the issue. I know with the i7's the RAM speed is directly linked to the i7's speed but that is really just a guess.

What do you guys think? Any one else have a similar system? If so are you or have you experienced the same thing?

I am open to any help or any info you can provide.

Did you set the Ram volt's in BIOS? This is a must when installing ram. You should set the timings as well.

If I had to guess, I would say i7 and RAM are the issue. I know with the i7's the RAM speed is directly linked to the i7's speed but that is really just a guess.

What do you guys think? Any one else have a similar system? If so are you or have you experienced the same thing?

I am open to any help or any info you can provide.
Is this with the stock cooler? I'm betting it is. Try and reapply the Thermal paste and make sure it is fairly tight when mounted.
If that does not fix it you could try an aftermarket cooler, I'm sure you are on your works budget but you can get a lot more life out of a work PC by running as cool as possible.

It is on the stock cooler. That is a good point I will remove and reapply the thermal paste. As far as aftermarket cooler, I would think Intel would provide a heat sink that can cool its processor at stock conditions.
