BIOSTAR TA880GU3+ / G.Skill Sniper 12800

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Before I Refund (RMA) and get a different MB, I'd like to continue to troubleshoot two pieces of hardware.

BIOSTAR TA880GU3+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

4×240pin
Memory Standard:
DDR3 1600(OC)/1333/1066/800
South Bridge:
AMD SB850

G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR


Cas Latency: 9
Voltage: 1.5V
Multi-channel Kit: Dual Channel Kit
Timing:9-9-9-24
ECC:No
Buffered/Registered:Unbuffered
Heat Spreader:Yes
Features: Designed for Intel LGA 1156 Core i5 / i7 CPUs and AMD AM3 CPUs

MB jumper were on clear CMOS when shipped so I switch to normal operation.
on one side of the board there is four lights (We will call bob) an on the other theres 2 (we will call sam ).

Bob has 2 out of 4 lights on
NB_PH_D1 on, PH1_D1 on , PH2_D2 off , PH3_D3 off
Sam has one light on LED_D1 on & LED_D2 off

This was considered as a memory error. I cleared the Cmos again and all lights turned on but nothing was still happening display wise. Power seem to flow fine since before I cleared out the Cmos the fans barely turned, now they do. I test the memory slots, all lights go on when performed single channel. CPU fine, everything else is fine but no display.

What I did notice was(which might be silly) , the motherboard says it supports 1600MHZ O/C and my sniper sticks are 1600 stock, can that be a problem? Biostar didn't list this RAM in their compatibility list and I E-mailed them before buying, they confirmed that it may/should work but maybe they over looked on something.

When I cleared the CMOS, itwas only a few seconds with everything still connected, I even removed the battery but again everything were in seconds. I read wait 5mins with everything unplgged an etc i will give that a try when I get home. Now, should I switch the RAM from 1600 stock andget another Gskill thats 1333 stock and over clock or should it work fine? i was considering the RMA both. Your help would greatly help me out!

Thanks in advance,
Gen

Well the memory not being on the support list really isn't a big deal. Rarely is memory actually incompatible with motherboards. Since the memory controller is actually integrated onto the processor, the motherboard plays less of a role than you would expect (basically just supply voltage, set timings, and read the SPD table).

Next, 1600mhz isn't really relevant. The kit you have is going to POST at a lower frequency. Motherboards will read from the SPD table found on memory, which contain JEDEC approved timings/frequency/voltage and will boot from that initially. Take for example my 2000mhz memory. It doesn't automatically boot at 2000mhz, it will boot at something lower on the SPD table below. This is to ensure maximum compatibility across various platforms.



I'm confused by what's happening with your system. Does it turn on or not even POST at all? Have you tried one stick of memory? Have you tried switching from the white slots to red slots or vice versa? Was the system working with other memory? Or is this a fresh build?

Fresh build, tried switching 1 stick to each slot and from what the MB LED says its running normal. What it does not do is display bio's at all or even a blank black screen( no image at all). Used different methods of display; DVI, HDMI-mini, VGa from integrated to PCI and nothing.

Try a reseat on pretty much everything. To the basic things: are you using standoffs between the case and the motherboard? Is the 24 pin and 4 pin power connector connected firmly?

No, i'm using an old case which never had any on my previous motherboard (used same screws) which I had for 5 years. If its that important, i'll order some asap...

There you go...if I had a nickel for every non-booting pc on here with no stand-offs installed I'd....well you get the point.IF you haven't fried your mobo already,take everything out of the case and install on a cardboard box.Tell us what happens.You can use a small screwdriver to jump the two pins for the front panel power switch to turn it on once evrything but the front panel connectors are installed outside of the case.

Understood, I will be picking up some Branded Ultra Standoffs from J&R right after work and do as you said. Thanks for replying on something so simple.

Sorry for not updating sooner, was family time this weekend.

The AMD 880G Chipset with ATI Radeon HD 4250 Graphics could not display any image HDMI, DVI nor VGA. My PCI Nvidia 460 SE through HDMI-mini did the job and all worked well. installing the motherboard driver for this integrated AMD 880G Chipset with ATI Radeon HD 4250 Graphics worked when Win 7 was finally installed.

Kinda didn't understand why that happen, but it did... even though the Biostar box advertise that it would work out the box. Before I even switch through different video outputs on the same Chipset, I completely shut up the system to assure that it would display something, along with the HDTV. Anyways, thanks for the help guys.

,cheers

Eviill,

I have a different 880G board (ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3) and have found that the VGA port is bad, which sucks for dual monitors, but I was going to install a discrete video card anyway. But I'm curious if you were able to enable both the IGP as well as your GTX 460.

Thanks,
