Problem with DQ6 and Geil ultra DDR2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ive just put together my new E6600 system and went to turn it on and it will power up for a few seconds then the computer will restart and will keep doing this untill i turn off the power. So ive tried some other ram that i have laying around, value elixer 1gb stick and put the in and it boots fine. I read somewhere that there were some compatibility issues with some ram and the DQ6 but i thought that it was sorted in the F4 bios update wich i have jus flashed to using the elixer ram. I put the Geil ram back in after the flash and it still wont boot, just does the same ting as before.

This is the RAM im using
GeIL 2GB (2x1GB) PC6400 800MHz Ultra Low Latency DDR2 Dual Channel Kit

Any ideas would be very helpful.

Thanks

Danm

Sure.....you will just notice the performance hit of only having 1GB of RAM in games and such.....heck, for a short while, I was overclocking my Presler on a single 512 stick
