ezveedub Anyone here have luck with modded bios F9D for the X58A-UD7 Rev 1? I was running F8 bios forever with my old I7 960 and switched for a Xeon W3690 which runs fine...tried the F9a bios, the one Gigabyte site and then flashed it to F9D from the modded bios forums and I noticed it works fine, BUT intermittently when booted from cold start, it powers up briefly (quick power light up and shut off- like 1/2 second or 1 second only), then it’s off...hit power again and it comes in and trips the backup bios to reflash the main bios and kills the F9 series bios if used...of course my backup bios was F7 (smaller bios and needs Qflash in Windows to flash back to F8-easier way to get it back for me). I have since reflashed the backup bios to F8 since it always worked, but just seeing if I missing something with F9 series bios not working reliably for anyone else.

It booted before I reset cmos, and windows was working. Tried doing 1 RAM and 2 RAM with different RAM models, but still the same motherboard lights. I am not sure what the lights mean. I am now leaving the motherboard battery out for a little bit. I really don't want to reinstall the CPU with my old i7 930, update bios, and then reinstall x5650...

UPDATE: I installed the i7 930, same exact issue :'(

Any suggestions to remedy? No post screen, no keyboard lighting up.

Did you by any chance swap your cpu before that? I ask because if you are, there is big possibility that you put too much pressure on your cpu block and cause some bends on mbo ram contacts that could cause this?
Also, just for heads up, be very careful about cpu socket pins alignment when you swap cpus.

I am using 3x8GB of Kingston HyperX DDR3 rated at 1860Mhz and cannot for the life of me get it to run any faster than 1400Mhz at 8 8 8 24. I just pulled the RAM kit out of another X58 system (Asus P6X58D-E) running smoothly at 1950Mhz. I have the VTT pushed all the way out to 1.331V and do not want to make the next jump to 1.355V as that seems to be the tipping point for damage from what I read.

I am not an expert on memory settings and have only adjusted the primary 4 timings. The rest of the options are "auto" except for 1T command rate selected manually. Is there something else I should be looking at? Or are these boards just plain sensitive to memory types. I don't think I'm going for anything really crazy.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
You tried from start by loading fail/safe settings and working your way up? What about other setting?

ezveedub FYI if anyone here is still around, but does anyone still have a Hybrid SILENT-PIPE 2 laying around for the UD7 mobo they're not using?? I can't locate mine in all the old boxes I have and I'm looking for one now if anyone has it laying around. I pulled my UD7 X58 mobo back out to use a Xeon CPU and need it for an air cooled setup. It was supplied with the X58A UD7 & UD9 mobos.

HelpDatBIOS You need to google how to force dual BIOS recovery for gigabyte boards, there is a few methods, keep at it and you will get it. If not, order CH341A flash programmer and SOIC8 test clip cable, so you can reprogram main BIOS. @BIOS may have killed your BIOS (Not fried, just badly programmed. Possibly not though, since it booted to windows for you once after the @BIOS flash.

Do you have your memory in the correct slots now? White slots only when using 1-3 modules. I did see your image, with one stick in a correct slot, so if it's still there or middle white slot that's OK.


It could also be fail safe compatibility issue with your graphics card (fail safe is loaded when you clear CMOS, until you load optimized again). Try another older graphics card or PCI card if you have one, and try other slots too, to rule out this issue.

I have the same problem. I was doing 6x8GB until couples months ago and stop working. People said to check for bent pins but I doubt thats your problem.

1) The main question is, if it will run my x5675 xeon with f7 bios. (thats the bios actually on the mobo) On ex58-ud5 im running this CPU on f13j. On Gigabyte site with bios downloads for x58a-ud5 is anything newer, than f4 saying BETA bios, so idk if I should update it, or to leave it as it is and it will run and OC my X5675 without any problems like the older mobo.

2) is it worthy to use the marvel sata 6gb port? I have seen some benchmarks showing the marvel is actually slower than the intel 3gb, transfering anything but large files... (maybe it si good just for storage HDD, with main system SSD being on intel 3gb sata, idk.)

Thanks for any help and im sorry, if this problems were discussed here before. I cant read all the almost 400 pages at once
Hi there, I'm using the same one as yours now. Don't worry, mine even runs with a modified bios f8b which added several new firmwares from tweaktown. Everything is fine and OC stable @4GHz . (https://valid.x86.fr/i07jgn)
About the Marvel sata 6gb port, unlike many other criticism on the internet, mine runs perfectly stable without any issue for a long time. The only drawback is its Random speed which falls behind the native intel SATA 2 about 20-30%. I've switched to the SATA 2 because for an OS storage, random read speed matter most. Another reason is the samsung magician tool for my SSD wouldn't recognize any disk if it connects through the Marvel port -> I need its ram caching feature.
Have fun with it mate!

HelpDatBIOS 6 slots, six memory modules, no mistakes can be made there What BSOD are you getting, last four digits? If you do not know, you can check the event viewer logs, go to windows logs, system and then filter for ID 1001

What is the stock voltage for those sticks, and what speeds are you running them at?
What did you set QPI/Vtt voltage to? For 24GB in general, you should set something manual and not use Auto, it all depends on the memory speeds/timings and how strong your CPU IMC is.
I would start stability testing at maybe 1.2, then go up as needed, may need 1.25-1.35+ for full stability again depending on speed/timings and your particular CPU they are all different some weak some strong IMC
