Well I got this fancy new DDR3-1600 CL7 @ 1.9V memory and a shiny new motherboard to go with it. I have updated the BIOS to the latest listed (as was recommended by the reviews I read). My memory is rated at 1.9V but it defaults to 1.5V. If all I do is increase the memory voltage to 1.9V the computer will reboot several times and then restore the "last known stable settings".
So anyone know why the board is so unstable when all I do is increase the memory voltage?
That seems very strange. I'm also having a hard time with my Gigabyte P45 DDR3 board, but not like that. Have you tried 1 stick? Memtest? Maybe you have a bad stick. Is it 2X2GB? Maybe add a little to NB?
All DDR3 defaults to 1.5, have you tried stability tests at stock without resetting voltage?
I think there is a f4b from 7-2009 on web site. Its what i am running on my GA-EP45T-DS3R board. Your memory bandwidth is too low if its is read measure. should be @ high 7K with 7-7-7-24 timings.
death Im pretty sure C1E doesn't throttle you mem volts and its only active when the CPU is at idle. Shouldn't be issue.Paul try loading fail safe values then check memory settings start of 8-8-8-24 and stock Cpu settings and see if you have problems...aslo make sure you have power to the 8 pin on your board by Cpu !! Very Important !!
