Small FFT stresses the Lx Caches only, no memory at all. Large FFT stresses the Lx Caches and some memory. The "Blend" stresses predominately memory. If the RAM is no good, or the IMC is wonky, anything past Small FFTs will fail. If you run DIMMs in the white slots only, and it is fine, the blue slots only, and it is fine, but white and blue together fails, that rules out the motherboard. If any two of the four DIMMs work in any combination on the board, that rules out the RAM itself. If problems only exist when all four slots are populated, that tends toward the CPU's IMC. It might run DDR2 without problems but fail with DDR3. That both the x3 720 and the 1090T fail with blend tends to rule out the IMCs, as it is improbable that both are bad.

Thanks for the responses Blitz. Looks like I have a few more things to try! Just wish I wasn't in the middle of moving while trying to solve these issues.

I understand a bit about the whole wrestling with Gigabyte issue, Junglebizz...I had to do it, too, and they kept blaming my RAM. It turned out to be part of the issue, but not all of it. The first UD5 I had was screwy, and had severe HDD read issues. The second board I got has been fine, and that allowed me to actually see that I had a couple iffy sticks of RAM that would just enough to push the first board to useless (2nd board ran, but not well).

Are you getting any BSOD? If you're getting PFN-List- Corrupt, and Driver IRQL, it's likely RAM, since you have the other CPU and it's not stable, either. The Corsair I RMA'd actually passed Memtest every single time, yet would refuse to boot into Windows 60% of the time. I let Corsair know this, and they didn't even argue with me, actually told me it was bad on the spot (I asked for a second opinion, and they gave a basic explanation). I ended up with a newer version of the RAM, and this 2nd board has been probably the most stable board I've ever had....no joke (it's a tie between the UD5 and the Asus board in my Tricorder build, as it's been great out of the box).

Try playing with the voltages some. Also, Gigabyte's RAM support is always unofficial. They said the same crap to me when I had exact modules; which they're full of crap out, because the Corsair 2GB 1600 sticks they quote as supporting are 1.65 volts, and never came 1.5...so their tech support is stupid (they also told me my board had F1 bios installed when I sent it in, when it had F3). The only time I got very good service is when I called, got past customer service, and went straight to the tech guys. They didn't argue with me one bit, and were the ones to pick up return shipping.

I'm no fan of Gigabyte, but there are ways to expedite the process with them.

hmmmm


I didn't read all the last pages but...


I been following all this troubleshooting and not working MOBO-CPU-RAM, and it seems clearly that the last few years every company/brand, mostly ASUS and now Gigabyte are paying full attention to Intel based MOBOs

I was in a hole once with this MOBO being my first time with Gigabyte, and the thing was that the troubleshooting beeps codes description (or whatever you call this) is ****ing useless cuz' I was told that any beep within 1 and 11 beeps means RAM problem. (so I was like ***)

anyway, seems that the only reliable help we can get for AMD based setups is from the same AMD users and yet a lot of people refuses to answer noob questions


So, all I'd read was the problem with the RAM, so you may know now that phenoms II series 7**/9** have a weaker IMC than the phenom 10**T, so you need to add forcefully Voltage to the CPU-NB in order to keep the default RAM speed stable, I know that you know this by now so don't mind me

perhaps we would get now little more help from the guys over here


I know this community is really good and you guys are really good and have a lot of info, so please type in some ideas for the newbies over here.


I've forget, any news related to F6 bios and HDDs arrays??

Been getting a BSOD for some weeks now, not really sure what it is...

http://www.funkyhorror.net/tchernobyl/IMG_0348.JPG

I've been told it's drivers related, and i was reading something about hardware changes, which is what I did. I went from an older model (MA-790FX-UD5P) to the 890 UD5, simply swapping the mobo and ram and not reinstalling windows.

Are either of those the cause, or does it lie elsewhere, adn ist here a solution?

Whenever I swap mobos, I always re-install Windows. Swapping out RAM is a non-issue as long as you're sure that the speeds and timings are stable. Have you tried repairing Windows at least?

I believe I have, but I forget where that's at... refresh my memory?

You can do it off the Windows disc.

hey folks, new guy here.

I'm about to put my rig in my sig, but for right now, i got: the ud5 mobo, 1090t, and a gtx470.

My question is, has anyone done a SLI crack with the ud5 board? i've only ever seen the ud7.


thanks!
