whats wrong with my system?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i have a bit of a problem here, ever since i updated my CPU my system is very unstable. im not sure if the bios is to blame for this, maybe someone got a idea what else could be going wrong.

i tested my ram yesterday because im not able to run anything else than 7-7-7-30-1T-42@1000mhz@1.7v stable (rated: 7-7-7-24-2T@1600mhz@1.65v) unless i pump huge amounts of volts through them:O
so i let memtest run during the night and it passed just fine with the rated settings...
but whenever i enter windows it will not take long until the system freezes or crashes (everything else is on stock, turbo, c1e disabled)

here the memtest and settings of the rated settings:



and here the current settigs which run stable:


any idea what could cause these crashes?

Try clocks with each stick of RAM. One of your RAM sticks may be a dudly!
Which considering the RAM is OCZ wouldn't be too unusual.
Considering the RAM only behaves like that in Windows though, it might be your northbridge clock?

i already tried one stick at a time, exactly the same problem, no errors in memtest and crashes in windows... wouldn't memtest give errors when i test with both sticks and one is bad?

my NB frequency and voltage is @stock, 2000mhz 1.1v. note the system crashes with everything @stock except the recommended ram settings from OCZ forum 7-7-7-24-2T@1600mhz@1.65v CPU-NB: 1.35v and Vcore is @1.3v

Is the ram optimised for intel systems? I thought 1.65V was for i* series processors...other DDR3 ram that I have seen runs at 1.8V

I haven't really read up on it yet, so this might sound newbish of me but how come it has says in all spaces that you have 2/2 threads or 4 threads.... thats a hex core? Are the other 2 virtual cores or something?

its a AMD edition so i guess it should be optimised for AMD systems... i might add that with my old CPU (x3 720) i could run this ram 6-6-6-20-1T@1333mhz@1.65v without problems and all i changed is the CPU and the BIOS (which is very buggy, thats why im even considering it to be the problem). so im a bit helpless why its behaving so strange

thats just CPU-Tweaker which is a bit buggy there, i have a 6 core cpu

Yes it would give errors with both sticks, by using only one of them at a turn would allow to isolate which is the culprit.

...this makes me think it's a BIOS issue. If putting back the x3 and the old BIOS would solve these instabilities it would mean it's the BIOS that doesn't properly support the x6. The F8H BIOS is still BETA, you could probably contact Gigabyte and tell them about your issues, they may solve the incompatibilities in the final BIOS version.

This and:

well i already contacted Gigabyte and so far no information or anything from them.
im a bit worried that my hardware will suffer from some ****ed up bios settings. F8h is so buggy its not funny, there are random multiplier changes when setting things manually and that might also be the case for some voltages which can not be read in windows:/
i hope i get a response soon

i have no idea... what would happen if i flash back to F7 to see if it boots/works and it fails? can i flash back to a beta bios with the x6 installed?

i think i flashed to the beta bios with the old core installed....
