CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9 in EVGA 131-GT-E767-TR SLI

This is a new build. It's hanging during boot-up. If I reset CMOS, I can get into BIOS and even boot to Windows 7 64-bit. But when I turn it off for the night, it hangs again the next day.

 

I believe my BIOS version is 1.0.0.1012.

 

I'm getting POST error 89 "Setup ACPI tables." I believe this is actually resulting from my detected memory settings, because they're all wrong. I really, really need help setting this memory up in BIOS. I'm not looking for the best performance, overclocking, tweaking. I just want my PC to boot when I turn it on. I believe I read that X58 motherboards are having trouble detecting triple-channel memory settings correctly.

 

The only specs I can find at Corsair.com for this memory are the SPD Latency 9-9-9-24 and Tested Latency 10-10-10-27.

 

How that fits into this nightmare is beyond my comprehension:

 

Memory SPD [standard]

Memory Control Setting [Enabled]

Memory Frequency [1600Mhz / 2:12] <== was 1067

Target Memory Frequency 1600Mhz

Channel Interleave Setting [6 Way]

Rank Interleave Setting [4 Way]

Memory Low Gap [Auto]

 

Parameters

tCL Setting [9] <== was 8

tRCD Setting [9] <== was 8

tRP Setting [9] <== was 8

tRAS Setting [24] <== was 20

tRFC Setting [74] <== was 86

tREF Setting [Auto] 509

Command Rate [Auto] 1T

tRRD Setting [Auto] 4

tFAW Setting [Auto] 20

tRTP Setting [Auto] 4

tRW Setting [Auto] 8

CH1 Round Trip Latency [Auto] 51

CH2 Round Trip Latency [Auto] 52

CH3 Round Trip Latency [Auto] 54

Back to Back CAS Delay [Auto] 0

tddWrTRd Setting [Auto] 5

tdrWrTRd Setting [Auto] 5

tsrWrTRd Setting [Auto] 14

tddRDTWr Setting [Auto] 10

tdrRdTWr Setting [Auto] 10

tsrRdTWr Setting [Auto] 10

tddRdTRd Setting [Auto] 7

tdrRdTRd Setting [Auto] 6

tsrRdTRd Setting [Auto] 4

tddWrTWr Setting [Auto] 7

tdrWrTWr Setting [Auto] 4

tsrWrTWr Setting [Auto] 4

tRL +0

tWL +0

 

I know enough to change the frequency and the first four settings under "Parameters." The fifth setting (tRFC Setting [74]) I just copied off someone else's post. I've never seen BIOS settings like this before. I really need some help.

All you should have to do is load setup defaults and then enable XMP in your BIOS. I'm not entirely familiar with your BIOS and not sure where that setting would be without looking at your MB manual.

My guess is it will be an option under "memory speed" or "memory control setting" XMP will set timings and voltages

Can't use that link right now; their forums are offline, it seems.

 

When I switched the BIOS (rev 77) to XMP Profile 1 or 2, the timings remained at 8/8/8/??. I had to manually change them to ratings I found online for my memory. Naturally, this BIOS has nearly two dozen other memory settings that I have no information for.

 

I ran CPUz, hoping to get the info there. Is this stuff accurate:
