Same here, but only if I use 4x2Gb Kingston Ram (compatible!). If I use only 2x2Gb, there is no reboot. Same on my DP55WG, so I think 1. it is a memory problem and 2. the i3 is too young for both boards, so it is not 100% compatible if you use any uncertified memories or 4x2Gb (certified) ram.
But how come I run Memtest and they all clear?
Is there a list of certified/compatible rams that I can get?
Hey, thx very much, that list is really helpful.
Thank you again. I am heading to the store tomorrow, will update.
I also have a random reboot issue with i3 530 with two identical machines on Win7 Pro (32bit). Interestingly, reboots happen when the machines are idle (and never happen when they are under a load), maybe there is something wrong with power management.
The only thing I've found to makes the machines stable so far is changing video driver from Intel's to "Standard VGA Adapter". Well, as these are offce PCs I can probably even live with it ;-).
I have the same problem with DH55TC, I3-530 and Transcend memory. It restarts random. You can have enough luck to have it running for 1 day or for 1 second. I think that is a problem regarding I3 processor and its integrated memory controller. If I change the processor with G6950 processor there is no restart. As somebody says : "I3 is to young".
Same problem also appears with DP55WG. If you use memory from compatibility list there is no problem and the system is running well. But I don't want to change the memory supplier only because one motherboard accept Kingston and another Corsair, etc.
I´ve the same problem with the DH55HC, the core i3 and Kingston ram. I´ve but the processor and the ram in another board, from asus, and what should i say, it work perfekt.
Having the same problem with i3 unexpected restarts.
Intel Core i3 530
Intel DH55TC mobo
Corsair Dominator 4GB DDR3 PC10666 1333MHz
Hitachi 1TB Serial ATA HD
Ultra LSP550 Power Supply
Lite ON 24xDVD
At first this looked like a memory problem. After doing mem checks isolated 1 RAM module as failed. Thought I had solved the problem by removing bad RAM but no, continued to get restarts. I have returned the board and the memory for replacements but am not too confident of a solution when I get the new parts.
In my original converstion with Intel I was informed that the RAM was not compatible. Corsair told me it was!! I called Intel again and was told that although Corsair may have tested RAM and considered it to be compatible, RAM might not be entirely stable!
So....is it the memory, the mobo or the processor??
By the way, why no input from INTEL on this problem?
check if your Ram module can support 1.5v , coz mine is kingston 2gb ddr3-1333 @ 1.5v and it runs fine
I've already sent the RAM back for replacement, but will check that out when new modules arrive. Don't think that's the problem though.
Once again.....WHERE'S THE INTEL INPUT ON THIS?????
