Crashed again after 5:15. I am going to take the advice of the above poster and put my ram in the correct slots, I believe I have them in A1_B1.

Yep, it's A2 & B2 recommended by ASUS for the Pro.

and since RCPilotJAE depends on the manual to understand dual channel, that's page 2-11:

"2 DIMMS: Supports two (2) modules inserted into either the blue or the black slots as one pair of Dual-channel memory configuration."

I pulled it out to verify, yep its A2_B2 and I am testing again biggrin.gif

Can I just say, that at 1.44v and 4.8ghz, my H50 is keeping this below 70c? How awesome is that

Edit: I am having random display driver crashes during prime 95 testing. Theres no way the sig rig is outdoing my seasonic 610W unit.

READ THE MANUAL!!!

 

Each manufacturer is different from others, with colors, labeling, and physical layout on the board.

 

Many manufacturers will have variations between their own model lines in color or even numbering schemes and physical layout.

 

READ THE MANUAL!!!

 

MY Asus P8P67 WS Revolution (rev. B3) uses blue and black colors and uses labeling of A1, B1, A2, B2 and recommends installing into slots B1 A2 and B2 as the preferred slots, which are BLUE black.

 

EDIT: Strike-through correction from B1 to A2 and black to blue.  See how easy it is to screw up when going by memory and not reading the manual? I should have read the manual before I posted!

 

Manufacturers have been known to use 0, 1, 2, 3   ///  1, 2, 3, 4  /// 0,2,1,3 /// 1,3,2,4 /// a,b,c,d /// a1, a2, b1, b2 /// a1, b1, a2, b2   and so on, as layouts and labeling. The order, color, labels.... it's all subject to change and there's no substitute for reading the manual.

 

 

Always verify during your POST that your BIOS is reporting "dual-channel mode" (or "triple-channel mode") to make sure that you didn't goof!

Wow! The manual for my P8Z68 Deluxe Gen3 recommends A2 and B2 which are blue. So these P8 boards are not all the same.

Crap, I had a typo. See how easy it is to mess up?

 

 

It's A2 and B2 for the WS Revo.... (which, after cracking my case to look are the BLUE slots, not black)

 

There's a lesson for me: Read my own manual AND look at my hardware before I even post, because memory won't serve me well!

Tjeez don't get crazy guys and galls... It's not that hard A and B are a couple destined for dual channel wink.gif Happy marriage biggrin.gif But yeah Asus recommends using the A2 an B2 slots on every board they did for the Z68 series. When using only two slots that is. There is the Fact that Sandy Brifge doesn't overclock so well with all banks filled. And that no chip is the same. But A1 and B1 filled is also dual channel.

Is there need for a sticky or a guid on this?

Has anyone had much luck getting the Asus AI Suite II to actually work? Can't seem to get my new build to like the software much. It installs, reboots, but then there is nothing to show for it. Tried the patch but no change either.
