Hi

Could you try another USB stick?
Hopefully one that is different from the current one that you are using

Please explain

Edit: Also my motherboard manual says that for 2 modules to work they need to be placed in slot 1 and 3.

Return Material Authorization (RMA) means return to supplier for replacement.

The link to your motherboard in post #19, was so you can download your motherboard manual and read the section that will tell you where you can find this information.

If you don't have you motherboard manual download it and read the BIOS voltage section.
Check the motherboard version before D/L the manual. It's on the lower left corner of your motherboard.
Gigabyte P55 US3L

As mentioned already, updating your BIOS can result in leaving your motherboard non-functional.
The term used is 'Bricking' your motherboard. Because all it is good for is holding the door open, like a brick does.

Warning:
Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction.
Read up on how to do this, especially if you have never done it before.
If your area is prone to power outages, get or borrow a UPS - uninterruptible power supply.

Take a USB pendrive and make sure it is formatted with a FAT32 file system.

Couldn't wait for your responce Dave, sorry about that but it just started to rain and we have alot of powercuts in my area so i had to do it asap.

The results were: BIOS Update passed! (or something like that)
I checked my BIOS version now and it says "FH"
I am posting from my newly BIOS-Updated PC so i think i can still use a brick to hold my door open ^^

I am gonna leave it off for 3 - 4 hours and cold-boot it with my RAM's in slots 2 and 4 but i need a confirmation from you to do so.

I await a reply

Regards

Glad to hear it.

If you weren't nervous when you did it, you should have been.

Download your motherboard manual from the link above, it will help you to find the information we will need to continue.

From the manual D/L'ed from Gigabyte, go to page 33 and start reading about your BIOS.

Voltages are on page 37 & 38.

RAM timings starts on page 41. >>>>> Standard Timing Control

Look in your BIOS and post the RAM voltage and NB voltage (which is QPI/VTT ).
Check if the RAM timings are still set to "Auto".

Let us know the settings.

Oke so here it goes:

>>>MCH/ICH
PCH Core 1.050V [Auto]
CPU PLL 1.800V [Auto]
>>>DRAM
DRAM Voltage 1.500V [Auto]
DRAM Termination 0.750V [Auto]

Then we got:

DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) [Auto]
Profile DDR Voltage 1.5V
Profile QPI Voltage 1.1V
x Channel Interleaving 6 Auto
x Rank Interleaving 4 Auto

Here are the setting..i hope they are the right ones..

Regards


Edit:
I just got another 3 BSOD's.

-1 while opening Bittorrent.
-1 while opening Firefox.
-and 1 during windows boot :S

Here is the report: Attachment 100870

P.S I think the other 6 from the start of the thread are still in there so ignore them.
Look at the latest 3.

Your right your mobo manual says the RAM has to be in slots 1 & 3.

Set the first four RAM timings manually to 9-9-9-24 and your Command Rate (CMD) to 2, leave the rest on Auto.

The QPI/VTT is the memory controller voltage, change this to 1.14v.

DRAM Voltage to 1.55v.

Check for stability, at the next cold boot.
