ga-z68x-ud3h-b3 RAM issue - need help

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm running the GB board mentioned with an i72600k processor, Kingston Hyper X SSD, and 2 x 4gb GSkills Ripjaw RAM. Everything has been running perfect until I added 8gb more RAM (same manufacturer). Now the board won't even beep and keeps rebooting. Also, when I take the ram out, everything works perfect. Any ideas on where to start?

Are you using a patched DSDT?


Upgrading RAM, CPU or doing other things to your PC such as adding or removing an expansion card can affect the location of some reserved memory spaces that are set in your DSDT: http://www.projectos...?showtopic=2416 As you can see, even though DSDT is said to be "fixed function" some things do change.


You can get intro trouble this way because your old /Extra/DSDT.aml no longer matches reality.

The solution is to re-extract and re-patch your DSDT.


If you still have an unmodified copy of your old DSDT (the one you patched) you can use a diff tool (diffmerge is fine) to compare it to the new, unpatched DSDT. Differences between the two will be automatically highlighted.

This way you can easily track down what has changed and apply these changes to the patched version of your old DSDT, and you won't have to re-patch the new one all over again. Hopefully that made sense.


EDIT, never mind, I read your post again.


The first thing I would do in your situation is a CMOS reset. Leave the new RAM in. Unplug the PSU from the mains, remove the motherboard battery and close the CMOS reset jumper for at least 30 seconds. Look in your motherboard manual for details.

I appreciate your response, although I'm a little confused. I am upgrading my RAM from 2x 4gb to 4x 4gb. I am using a DSDT from tonymacx86, and I have not done anything to modify it. Are you saying that it needs to be changed to reflect the hardware changes I made? I wasn't sure if I was clear enough on my initial post. Thanks again!

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
