The ULTIMATE Sandy Bridge OC Guide + P67A-UD7 Performance Review - Page 10

post #91 of 713
Sorry for interrupting.

I have read this thread, and I have a single question I hope someone can help me with.

I've bought a GA-P67A-UD7 and a i72600K but would like to use my old DDR3 ram "TW3X4G1600C9DHX-G" on this ram there is a label that says "v1.80" I will buy some new ram later on, but would like to start with this, will that work, or do I have to buy some new RAM?

Thanks in advance.

I'm thinking so, Sin knows the board better than I do but i'm pretty sure you'll be fine.

Sounds great, I was looking for new RAM, but decided to wait and read a few reviews before investing money in it redface.gif

Therefor I thought I could start with the old RAM, and then upgrade when I'm ready to take a dive into the OC-World cool.gif

ok, first off, use BIOS F3, and then run memtest on both stick, see if it passes, if it doesn't then the RAM is bad or the Motherboard, most likely the RAM. FYI if the RAM is not on this list: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3646&dl=1#memory%20support%20list

its the memory support list, if its not on there then its not garunteed to work.

Thanks for helping me out!!!

Well I went and bought a couple of KHX2000C9AD3T1K2/4G which is on the compatibility list .. here's what I did:

1. Turn of computer
2. Put in new ram
3. Press the CMOS switch
4. Turn on the computer
5. The computer computer starts and reboots 3 times
6. When I'm finally able to enter the bios it says memory run at 1333MHz ... thought it should run at 1866MHz.
7. Rebooted the Pc and it hangs on code 50
8. I turn off power a couple of times until it starts
9. I press F12 to boot Memtest
10. Memtest freezes with this picture:

And when I enter Windows7... bam ...

So I don't get it ... I run compatible ram, F3 bios and still it reboots, freezes and act weird.confused.gif

What can I do next?

Tanks!!!

I get this freezed screen also with the latest memtest86 on my UD7. My memory checks out though, according to Intel Burn Test/Prime95/older memtest86+ from Ubuntu CD.

Well my new Intel DP67BG is showing same "freeze" .. so there must be something wrong with memtest and sandy bridge.

Besides that, my mobo is running real steady and fast.

Happy with i7-2600k!!!

Well you need to increase qpi/vtt voltage, did you try that? Also don't press clear cmos button when the power to the PSU is on.

1.8v ram voltage is fine, if you want to run you ram faster than stock you need to increase qpi/vtt and ram voltage, you can increase it to 2.1v i think for RAM voltage i have taken itto 1.8v easy.

i get some ddr3 2133 dominator next week, i will let you know how it goes. There was a BIOS fix for compatibility, if there was an XMP profile you should try it but check profile ddr3 qpi voltage to make sure its not over 1.2v.

Great to hear, now I can't wait to get my new rig up and running biggrin.gif

I've seen that there is ram specially optimized for Sandy bridge, is that real or is it a trick to get more sale?
