Greetings all
Just finished setting up everything on the new PC.
Proud member of a UD7 as well

CPU-Z

A question for you older owners. I just installed the triple channel ram and noticed that the cpu voltage led left of the ram is on yellow and green while I didn't oc anything.
Should it be like this ?

If you read the manual it explains that the LED lights go on progressively according to the load on the system

it is most likely due to more qpi/vtt voltage, do not worry about the LEDs, they aren't much to worry about. Once you OC you can fill out the form and ass yourself the the official ud5/ud7 database of OCs.

Welcome i have added you to the list of owners!

Hope you get that sorted out prob. free and do what you do best..

CHEERS
Thanks for the support KingT.

I hate having to get things fixed that worked perfectly, i always feel like its going to work worse when i get it back.

Anyways good luck, i hope you get the same board back soon.

I never thought that could be the problem. Although very rare to happen it's always a possibility and I handle so many parts all the time I never pay to much attention to static discharge anymore.

I don't really see the point in adding temps. They very so much depending on cooler ambient temps, test you use ect.

well maybe that is why it died, those IC on the board are VERY sensitive to voltage, and well even though you might not feel it you can discharge a hefty amount of voltage especially if you are charged up. many materials have electric fields such as Styrofoam and many plastics that cannot be discharged. I play it safe, better safe than sorry.

It is very rare to kill s computer part that way, but sadly computer parts are some of the only parts that can be killed by nominal/normal static discharge.

I am now thinking it has something to do with the motherboard again... I completely wiped my boot drive, clean reinstalled, disconnected my other drives and booted. Still the hang...

I've defaulted everything in my BIOS and i just need to wait for it to be "cold bootable" (takes about an hour) before i test the boot again on a completely default system.

If it does end up being a setting in the BIOS I will be severely pissed... All that work for nothing

Thanks for all the suggestions

have you tried load optimized defaults? have you ran each stick of ram through memtest? I have the same ram you do and i have no problems with it, mine is cas 9 though not cas 8. i had the problem you are talking about, like sometimes i tried to load into windows and it would bluescreen or crash, happened to be ram, faulty ram is a problem(its was OCZ ram), btw if you are trying to run 1600mhz with stock qpi/vtt its not going to happen, you need at least 1.2v qpi/vtt to run ram at 1600mhz.

Might be a long shot but are you using a disk to install windows? Maybe a bad install disk.

I work in IT and change parts every day, but maybe I should be more carefull....eh crap happens.

I typically use a USB flash drive to do installs now, it's a bit faster but for my benching OS's they are still on disk.
