I played with some voltages and it changed between 4 and 8Gb, so I assume it's something in there, though I'm not sure what. Apparently I need to change the DRAM voltage to 1.65, though it gives me the option of 1066 which is pink, though that still doesn't appear to work.

I'm goign to print off punknuts findings for his settings for the i7 930 @ 4Ghz and 12Gb ram tomorrow and see if that helps.

Does anyone else have ideas?
Check your RAM against the qualified vendor list. No RAM is rated to run at 2000 MHz with 12 GB. The fastest 6 x 2 GB configuration is 1600 MHz, so that is probably a better target for your RAM.

Try 1.66 vDIMM, 1.30v QPI/VTT, and a memory divider of 12:10 (assuming a 133 BCLK.) Set timings to 8-8-8-24 2T. Make sure all performance enhance settings are set to standard.

Thanks heaps, I"ll give it a go when I get home tonight.

I don't mind the 1600Mhz, I just don't want 1066Mhz, and obviously I want to see all 12Gb again. I knew I should have recorded my settings before I touched anything, haha.

I tried Punknuggets (sorry for saying punknut mate, someone I talk to on my irc network is called punknut) config settings, everything runs fine and stable at 4.2Ghz and whatnot, though I still get the 8Gb problem.

Here's a rundown of why I don't think it's faulty hardware:

It used to show all 12Gb until a BIOS update/reset
Windows says 12GB (8Gb usable)
BIOS shows all memory installed in the channels though the last one doesn't have anything in the 'enabled' part
CPU-Z shows RAM in all the slots
I've swapped and changed memory sticks around and tried heaps of combinations.

I thought I'd throw that in incase someone suggested I start swapping parts. I've written down the settings you just told me Balthazor, will let you know how I go.

Once this is all done, I might look at making it 4 or 4.2Ghz again, though that'll have a BLCK of 200, so I'm assuming these RAM settings might be different. It's weird how the mobo sets the timings for 7-7-7-20 when my RAM stock is 9-11-9-27

Your RAM's rated speed and timings are based on running a 143 BCLK and only 6 GB. If trying to use 12 GB you have to lower your expectations. However, reduced speed means tighter timings (lower timings = better performance.) If you have the timings set to Auto the motherboard will set the timings tighter based on the memory speed, which is why you are seeing 7-7-7-20 when you are running it at 1066 MHz.

Once you are able to get your system running consistently at 1600 MHz and 133 BCLK, using the timings and voltages I recommended, then you can move on to playing with the BCLK to OC your CPU. Just keep in mind that you'll probably have to reduce the memory divider as your BCLK goes up; in fact, once you start playing with BCLK speeds, you should underclock your memory by reducing the memory divider to 2:10 or 2:8 from the outset, to avoid memory instability being an issue while you test your CPU overclock.

Once you have a stable CPU overclock you can bring the memory speed up a bit by raising the memory divider, until you find your memory speed sweet spot.

Ah, so the timings makes sense now, thanks

What I don't understand entirely is the memory divider? Is this the BCLK * vDIMM? or SPD. Sorry for such noob questions, I think I'm trying too hard to figure it out, so I'm going a bit too far and not looking at the easy answer. I keep focussing on the 'it used to wokrk now it doesn't' scenario.

I just want to see 12Gb at 1600Mhz and then I'll be happy. I'll save all settings, write them down then work on CPU.

Hi there...
Nice to meet all of you in this forum.
I want to sharing some problems using the X58A-UD7...

1. my hard disk computer performance is 'only' 5.8 (i think its low)...
how can i make it faster? Which the best port to use for primary HD?
Is there any bios setting to set? I use WDC Black 500G.

2. If i want to OC my rig... can anyone tell me the OC setting that can use for 3D rendering with 20hours/day use...
Im not pursuit the highest, just want to little increase the performance without getting 'hot'
Btw, im in tropical indonesia, with no air conditioning system... so, temperature is critical for my rig to live longer ever after...
i use megahalems for cpu cooling, and cosmos s casing.
Thx!!!

Dammit, noy joy. No matter what I do, it won't show the last two sticks as being 'enabled'. It says they are there, but not enabled. I'll check my CPU pins tonight I suppose, though I doubt it's them because it used to see it all.

I've upgraded to F7 BIOS now that it's non beta. This is doing my head in. I know 8Gb is plenty, though I paid for 12, so I want to see 12, plus I assume triple channel would work better. Even if I just have 6Gb in there, the third channel doesn't enable, so it's stupid.

I've emailed Gigabyte hoping they can help, I just wish I knew what I Was missing. Balthazor, I didn't have a 1.30 setting for QPI, though I tried 1.315, 1.335, 1.355.

705, you'll have to go through this forum and find some settings that other people have posted or look at signatures for overclocking guides. I tried to read those, though obviously didn't work for me As for your hard drive speed, even 10,000RPM gets 5.9, so your best bet would be solid state drive if you want it really high (over 7.5).


Actually, come to think of it. Could it be that my power supply is a 15AMP one and it's running through a normal power point (via an adapter), so it might only be getting 10AMPS? I highly doubt it, though I'm getting a new power supply just in case, and running under ampage can't be good

Google 'x58 overclocking' and read up on how BCLK and RAM dividers interact, as well as other pertinent info.

You should consider checking the individual sticks with Memtest to ensure the RAM is good.

Regarding your PSU: you could be experiencing problems with the setup you are describing. You could also be risking a fire if trying to draw too many amps from a lower-rated socket, breaker, or too-thin gauge electrical wiring. Please be careful.

Yeah, I'm going to change the power supply, the replacement has already been ordered. I'm reading a few forums and getting templates, I'll have to setup my old comp and go online with that so I can read and play with BIOS on the new one I think.

Thanks,


Daniel

It appears Gigabyte has released the final F7 BIOS for UD7 rev.1 here:

http://www.gigabyte.com.au/products/...px?pid=3251#dl

Took them a while to finally release the final version, was getting confused with all those F7(Insert letter here) BETA BIOSes.

Also, I got myself an i7 970 coming from an i7 950, it works well. Still on BIOS F7w, should update to the final version soon.
