Try putting back in your i7 then see if you can set it to something else. Maybe there is something wrong with your board.

I have 2 different GA-X58-UD3R ver. 2 Motherboards and I can't get 24 gig of RAM to stabilize on either system. I'm not even overclocking.
I've tried setting to optimized defaults and then adjusting the RAM timings to 9-9-9-24, set the RAM Voltage to 1.68 and boosting the QPI/VTT to everything between 1.3 and 1.6 volts but prime95 (blend and custom) always errors or freezes. I've even tried lowering the RAM Speed from 1600 mhz to 1333 mhz to even 1066 mhz, no luck. I've also tried with 3 different sets of RAM all with the same results. At first I thought something was wrong with the first mobo but to have a second behaving the same way must mean I'm doing something wrong. Does anyone know how to get 24 gig of RAM stable on this mobo?? I'm at a loss. I'd like to get the RAM stable at the stock processor speed before I start overclocking the i7 950 & 960. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
jb

Well that's one thing I've never had a problem with on my GA-X58-UD3R v2. I installed 24GB RAM. Stock settings. I never even looked at how to change any settings. No overclock. XEON 6 core Westmere. W7 Pro 64 bit.

Windows recognizes 24GB installed. Task Manager seldom shows more than 12% of it being used. Now I don't know if that means it is not being used efficiently because some tasks seem slow. But that could be GPU bottleneck or storage bus bottleneck.

Don't have any suggestion for your problem, but just wanted to confirm that GA-X58-UD3R v2 will recognize 24GB RAM. (Is that the MOBO limit ir a W7 limit, I forget?)

Try to do a memtest for each stick.

I am running 48GB (8GB x 6) and x5650, and used to i7 930.

Mixed sets of ram don't always play nicely together, even if the "same". There's that possibility.

That is something I have yet to try. The proper memtest procedure is to test 1 stick at a time using the optimized defaults of the motherboard??

Yeah, either optimized or default. usually 12 to 24 hours.
post #3688 of 3836
Im not sure if Im posting in the right section... with that being said, here I go.

I have X58A-UD3R REV. 2.0 and my hardware list is as follows,

FH BIOS Version
COOLERMASTER COSMOS Case

RAIDMAX 1200W PSU

XEON 5660 (Lapped to mirror finish) Had an i7 930

H50 Hydro Series Water Cooler (Lapped to mirror finish) Oooohhh so pretty coolsmiley02.gif

4 x 120 mm Case Fans

6 x 2 GB MUSHKIN DDR3 1600 (Memory Model 998805) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226121 (Thinking of upgrading to 48 GB of Memory)thinking.gif

1 x Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 2.5" 240GB SATA III SSD

1 x EVGA GTX 970 SSC

2 x Samsung Spin Point 1 TB

2 x Seagate Barracuda 500 GB

1 Samsung DVD/RW

1 Samsung 27" Monitor

1 Sony 32" Monitor/TV

I guess I could say that Im pretty green at OC'ing really, I mean Ive tried but I just dont really know enough about voltages and such to get stable

I do alot of gaming ( Star Citizen, Uncharted: A Thiefs End & Rise Of The Tomb Raider right now, runs good, low temps on hardware too) along with some video editing, Web Development and 2D/3D Animation/Modeling utilizing programs such as Adobe Products( A lot of After Effects), Cinema 4D, Maya 2016, 3Ds MAX 2017. So I guess it would be safe to say that I can push the limits of this computers performance

Not that it is entirely important to OC this Machine as I'm gonna be upgrading soon, my wife just notified me of the "okay to do so" last week (thank the CG gods for showing her the bulb.gif maybe?) thumb.gif

I have an image saved to desktop of AIDA64 and a few instances of CPU-Z

I will come back with an image of BIOS settings in a minute..... I started typing this and realized I didn't have that yet. What ever I need to get posted, will do, if someone wants to take a chance at helping me out I will greatly appreciate the help... wink.gif

i have the e GA-X58A-UD5 with i7-920

8 giga ram 2x4 on triple channel

the question is / can i use 2 more sticks of 8 giga ram to get (24 giga ram ) ?


ty for your time

bios update is 05.15.2011 version Ff1
post #3690 of 3836
I think it should work, though I believe you might have to test with some loaner sticks (a pair, any type) before you purchase to be sure...
