    Hi Peter, I've been curious about something taken from your X58 Classified Briefing last year where you mentioned a few off settings highlighted in the the pic below:

    http://g.imagehost.org/0180/2_6.jpg

    are these settings still necessary or recommended? Thanks so much for your continued contributions and valued support.

    I've added this to the BIOS Changelog for the E759 Classified Limited Edition Board (<-link), in case you want to check out the notes and links for current and past BIOSes, both official and beta (Twenty-three of them and counting...) for this great motherboard.

    No nuclear explosions so far, seems to have maintained my previous (mediocre) OC.
    3.8Ghz @ 201x19 CPU volts at 1.25625...

    I have weird temp issues, but that's a whole another story...

    Hi....

    I had some problem like you a feel weeks ago..

    I just bought my new computer and started to build after that my MOBO E756 just read 8Gb rather 12Gb
    So i had tested each Ram module following the channel order to detect what channel was't reading the memory.
    So I had discovered my last channels 5/6 wasn't working.
    I had spent one entire day reading thousands posts when i read something interesting.
    Evga Mobos can suffer if the processor has pressure.
    I looked into the cooler and relaxed it a little and nothing happened. The system still counting 8Gb rather 12Gb.
    Then i disconnected everything including the processor from the socket. I clean some paste from it and put it back , put the cooler relaxed on it (no pressure at all) put the video card , PSU and started to fill the channels:
    bank 1 (2Gb) turn on
    bank 1,3 (4Gb) turn on
    bank 1,3,5 (6Gb) turn on
    bank 1,2,3,5 (8Gb) turn on
    bank 1,2,3,4,5 (10Gb) turn on
    bank 1,2,3,4,5,6 (12Gb) turn on
    Then finish.

    The magic in relax the processor from the socket and put it back solved the problem. Also I had made all configurations before try this into the bios and never solved until I discover this process.

    WARN: this channels order are because my mother E756 (SLI MICRO) requires it, then try to see what channels order your MOBO needs.

    But if you are looking for a OC, and in the total memory showed up in standard mode of the BIOS, then you need see the factory range before truy it. Try to see if your memory modules are listed in EVGA memory compatility.

    I have 2 kits of corsair gt 2000's no matter what my overclock I always
    see 6gb's.

    I recently dug out my old elpida hyper kits mushkin and i kept getting 4gb's, then after a few reboots i might see 6. it could just be the elpida hyper sticks death, but I will try this bios and see if it helps, thanks!

    This are the memories listed to 2000Mhz comatibility
    DDR3-2000 **(needs OC)
    Corsair TR3X6G2000C8GT 2GB
    in the Corsair Manual says:
    Tested together at 2000MHz, Vdimm = 1.65V, at latency settings of 8-8-8-24 on X58-based
    Then load the defaults and try this rates manually

    Also try to relax the processor (Not the Cooler) like my earlier post. I saw in the thousands of threads that the pressure in the processor can affect several parts of the mobo and severals users had different problmes in memories. I got the problem in the channel 5/6 but i saw users with problem in the first two cannels.

    I also read that in start up the mobo try to test the rate of the memories if any problem then the channel is dropped (discarted in memory count).
    So try to review your mobo connections. I sugest do what I did. Pull everything out the Chassis and start to build it again.

    It's stupid I know I know and I don't believed when I saw it count my entire memory. Later when you get good results try to use memtest86+ like 1 hour to test the entire address of you memory to see if you still getting problems based in pressure.

    Can you try setting your MCH strap to DRAM Ratio

    Some Intel chips just have weak memory controllers too.  Usually when I have the issue of disappearing ram on stock settings, an RMA with Intel fixes it most of the time.

    Case: CM Storm Scout
    PSU: Corsair TX 750w
    MoBo: EVGA X58 FTW3 (E768)
    CPU: Some BS i7 920 D0 @ 3.9GHz.  (old chip: Core i7 920 C0 @ 4.252GHz (1.29v))
    RAM: 3x2GB 1600MHz Dominator 8-8-8-20-1T (B2B 3)
    GFX: Sapphire VaporX 5870 1GB (1007core, 1300mem), EVGA 9600GT SSC 512MB
    HDD: Corsair SandForce 120GB, Western Digital 600GB VelociRaptor, Hitachi 1TB

    Disappearing RAM still on my side as well. I have to go into the BIOS, change the memory freq from 1600 to something lower and change it back, save settings and I'm back at 6GB. I have to do this after it has been shut down a couple of times.

    Change the TRL to 0 on the bottom on memory settings in the bios as that fixed my not seeing all of the memory. I bet most of you aren't even checking that setting at all. It worked after I set it to zero.  This bios works just fine for me.

    BIOS works, that's all I can say ...does not deal with anything that I care about but I won't go into that (hint, hint, it starts with a Snake and ends with a 2+1)

     Anyone else showing a dimm voltage change with bios e760_73 or is just me. In bios set dimm @1.65v, in Everest and eleet showing 1.71v. I have it set at 1.60v for now and showing 1.66v and stable. Don't have the the time time now to check further but when I get time I will check into it better.
     Also set Trl setting to +2  out of curiosity and dimm total went to 4gb from 6gb, set it back to 0 and back to 6gb total....

    I have Dominators GT 2000 with 8-8-8-24 latency...
    But with this new BIOS I can't set my memory
    tRFC and the commnad rate! If I set "74" with commnad rate "1T" my system no boots...
    If I set "auto" this sets the tRFC in "88" and the commnad rate in"1T" and everythings works fine again except for the tRFC setting...
    With the BIOS 73 BETA the "74" tRFC and the "1T"commmad rate in the memory settings weren't an issue and my sistem booting fine...
    If this is a BIOS issue, I hope can fix them... Thanks...

    ill try but its seem my board drops 2gb of memory if i run my memory on 1800Mhz in stead of 1600Mhz what could i do to get around this problem thanks.

    So, if you don't have any kind of memory issue, is there a point to this revision?


    Nope. Why fix what's not broken?

    People, lest we forget BIOS's are cumulative which makes these ongoing arguments moot.

    Like it's predacessor, BIOS 70 beta, my voltages with 73 are a bit more stable and temps seem to be a tad lower but will continue to test throughout the day but all is rock solid at same overclocks.

    One other item of note, I can now go back to "Auto" setting with MCH Strap and have the proper "Triple Channel" reading once again, whereas before I had to use the DRAM ratio setting with my 4.2 (201 BCLK) overclock.

    TRL fix seems to work for me at the default setting of +0 with this BIOS as all 12GB are showing while OC'd, BIOS 70 resulted in missing RAM for me.  Make sure to power down and reset CMOS after flashing BIOS. 

    Only odd thing is that the onboard speaker "chirps" randomly, same as if powering down for S3 Sleep.

    why does the download page for x58 SLI say:
    Bios Version : 73 BIOS Date : 05/12/2010
     
    Bios File : Download
     
    Notes : The following has been updated in 64:
    • Adds 1.5x uncore support for B1 CPU
    • Adds number of GPUs detected at bootup
    • Adds RC/AC setting in memory timings
    INSTRUCTIONS: BIOS updating can be accomplished

    instead of listing anything for 73?

    thanks

    raja ,,,, sham...

    what does TRL stands for??
    looking at the intel spec sheet to understand what it is.





    Not sure as I have not looked at the white papers recently. I don't recall it being in the white papers before, so perhaps Intel have updated. At first approximation, it might be CAS additive latency (just a crude guess), or another schedule offset. I'll have a look when I get some time.


    Later

    Ok, just checking out this BIOS. It has an issue with Uncore ratios with Gulftown processors. Set 15X Uncore multiplier  in BIOS running 2:10 @ 200BCLK CAS 7-8-7-20 with MCH 1600 and BIOS will set 16x Uncore when you save and exit. Tried pressing F10 to save and exit in the Frequency/Voltage Control screen and that does not help.
