Hey guys, some help required, and im stuck.
so put in 3 new sticks of kingston ddr3 1.5v 1600 mhz 2 gb dimms into x58 based system with 6 gig in 2x3 1600 mhz dimms and its not recognising the new ram sticks, but windows is also reporting that i only have 2 gig of memory, yet cpuz is reporting that there is 12 gigabytes installed.
cpu z is also reporting that ramm is also running in single channel, rather than triple
motherboard is asus p6t pro ws x58 and cpu is a core i7 920 currently running at stock.
i have some 4 gig dimms in another pc if that would help.
all help welcome
Are you running 32bit Windows?
What does Memtest86+ say?
64 bit windows pro, i shall run memtest after iron fist
try matching your memory sticks
thats your problem. They are different sticks.
dont make original sticks anymore, but will try manually setting timings
their sizes should also be the same. (just as a note)
aye, all are 2 gig dimms @ 1600 mhz ddr 3
once you get timings the same, try different slots. Sometimes it'll work.
sometimes problems may be deeper, while timings are the same and clock is the same; steps are different.
Use the msconfig command to manually set the max value.
hi there, quick update is that i had some kingston hyper x ram in another build, so took those and replaced the original ram i had on the core i 7 920 and booted up fine, alhough xmp 2133 refused to boot, 1600mhz xmp works fine tho. ( the max oc ram supported on my x58 is 2000mhz) I also removed all the original ram and tried new sticks that a bought but the x58 mobo did not want to boot with those dimms in, so will try them on a different pc and update thread as to results,
also any thoughts why original ram would not boot after cmos was cleared but hyper x does would be welcome
