Thread Starter 
Hi

ive spent the whole day trying to solve this problem, ive got

a 1100t phenom ii x 6 processor

a ga ma78lmt s2 motherboard (site http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3583#ov)

and Kingston HyperX RAM 2x 4= 8GB (1600mhz)


basically it doesnt pass the post stage no beep nothing.

now it might seem stupid , but the specs for the mobo say it supports 1300mhz and below without overclock

so will it start up with the 1600mhz ram or should i have got 1333mhz ram?

i have a 1000w high power psu by the way, so power shouldnt be the problem.

I don't think it supports the 1100t, according to the CPU support list on that site.

Have you previously had it working on that board? Regardless, I'd consider getting a new board for that x6... The Gigabyte is a 3+1 phase, I worry about it with a hex core.

I think T-ramp is right. I'm not sure if that board supports the 1100t.

Gigabyte and AMD don't really mix well from what I hear.

As far as the memory goes. You can get 1600Mhz memory and then set it at 1333Mhz and tighten up the timings on it, as long as the board supports 1600Mhz memory chip itself. I'm not sure if it can support the 1600Mhz.

My advice would to get a new board anyways (hopefully this board isn't new), possibly one with a chipset from the 8XX or 9XX series for future upgrades?

If you get a new board, may I recommend ASUS or MSI? And as jagz said, get at least a 4+1 power phase. 8+2 if you plan to overclock a lot.

They mix fine. I don't know, Unless it's quality quality 4+1 I'd atleast get a 6+2 or more preferred the modern 8+2.

Like this Gigabyte

Wow does that board get around, It get's linked in nearly every thread

Maybe it's the fact that I didn't like the way that any of the old Gigabyte boards looked period. It looked like it goes in a Pre-built computer, not a custom case haha. I like the one you linked though. They seem to have got their act together on the latest chipset series with the coloring schemes.

My bad on the info about the mixing of GB boards though.

Your problem is the 3+1 phase power.
Gigabyte does not ratify their 3+1 phase power setups for safely running 125W+ CPUs, as all mobo manufacturers should. Your processor will not run with this motherboard as it is disabled in BIOS. The VRMs are incapable of safely handling a 125W load; the max is 95W. It may not even be very safe at 95W, I think pioneerisloud fried one of these boards with a bone stock Athlon II x4 before

I wouldn't generalize on "Gigabyte and AMD don't mix pretty well" either. I ran a Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P (until recently) and it's been through everything. AMD Phenom II x6, overclocked Phenom II x6, overclocked Phenom II x6 at 1.675V (by accident ), NH-D14 mounting, SLI (that's right, unofficially), 4 RAM slots filled.... without so much as a hitch, for nearly 2 years now
