fudg3 Posted September 28, 2008 Share Posted September 28, 2008 I just recently updated to the latest bios ('F10'), which now decided to enable the EPP profile (CAS 4), before it just used the JEDEC profile (I have all settings on 'auto'). But, when I check in Everest, it reports the DRAM voltage is at 1.9V. I believe the bios should follow the specs as in the profile (2.1V)? Or could the Gigabyte engineers have a good reason to put it at a lower voltage for this board? Or maybe the reading could be wrong? Should I just set it at 2.1V manually? I just got a new system, but occasionally (after bios upgrade) I get Windows XP STOP 0000008E errors (BSOD's). I believe it's quite possible this can be caused due to RAM problems/settings? One of these errors occurred when trying to extract from a password protected Rar archive. An other one was just random while browsing the web. I experienced before that bad RAM can cause copies of files to be different etc. Can these kind of problem's occur when the the voltage for the RAM is too low? Is it a bad thing the sticks run at 1.9V? I'd greatly appreciate any help / advise in the matter. I just tried setting the DRAM 'Performance Enhance' setting at 'standard', instead of 'turbo'. So far so good. ps; I did run a memtest, which passed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
