This problem just turned up for me, too. Really frustrating. All Gigabyte could say was to up the voltage beyond the SPD values in my Corsair DIMMs from 1.5v to 1.65v, but still, no dice. I'd be curious to know whether this is a Northbridge failure or something less complex, like the PCB traces being more vulnerable around those two slots closest to the CPU. Incidentally, the exact same configuration was working just great for me until switching cases, and suddenly this problem (same as yours) occurred, permanently.

Of curiosity, this guy experienced the same thing (and clearly got stuck in a loop):

I've given up and sent in for an advance replacement. If the problem recurs with the replacement, I'll be utterly confounded. How did the replacement work out for you, Blast?

Maybe he should use QVL sticks, if it didn't fix it, maybe GTS should replace the guys board.

Ok so I'm building a new system soon and I've always had Gigabyte boards in the past so I'm currently looking at a GA-Z77X-UD3H. My question though is on the memory compatibility. It says on its spec sheet that I can use 1066/1333/1600 or 2666....but what about everything in between 1600 and 2666? If I install 1866 will it not work or something or limit the clock to 1600? I've just never seen a board just skip a whole segment of memory speeds before.

Never mind I just saw the "Memory Support List" on Gigabytes website and answered my own question....

yea also BTW that guy put both his two sticks in the furthest slots!, that is a no no. You are only on 1 channel that way, thus in single channel not dual. in that case he needs to try the slot furthest and then skip one and do the second closest, that is the correct way to do it.

IMO if you have the same problem as him you should RMA as one of the channels is not working. That has happened from water around the DIMMs, but otherwise it could be considered a an RMA issue.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out what he was doing. thinking.gif
I understand the frustration, though.

FYI, you misinterpreted the diagnosis (understandably as it was a while ago), because the known and frequent failure -- as I pointed out happening to me too -- is that the two slots closest to the CPU fail in ANY combination with the other two. So even when you properly put DIMMs in slots 1 and 2, which are the first and third slots from the ATX power connector comprising channel 1, there is the same error code 51. Same goes for channel 2, the second and fourth slots. The ONLY way to get past error code 51 in this case (again, a frequent occurrence for owners of this motherboard, even if you personally never had it) is either a single DIMM in slot 1, or or two DIMMs in slots 1 and 3 which are the two adjacent ones closest to the ATX power connector (single-channel mode).

I've got an RMA advance replacement on the way, but of course as anyone knows who went through this, it's impossible to see the status of the request, or any estimated delivery. Evidently it will just show up someday.

I've never seen it reported happening in a water cooling scenario; mine is air-cooled with a 212. The 212 does jam right up to that closest DIMM slot, though -- I feel safe to assume that the proximity of the CPU fan (its bezel just a hairline away from the DIMM heatsink there) isn't causing the problem. Why would it?

I had similar problem like "gigabytesucks.info"(?) 2 weeks ago, no boot or boot only in slot 1.
Also thinking about RMA,but.....
So, I check my socket and found some pins bent.......as I replaced my previous cooler (which I probably last time tight to much).
Put back pins in right position, carefully place CPU in socket, mount new cooler (do not tight to much)....and voila thumb.gif, mobo work like charm now. biggrin.gif

Btw,
as per your pic with 2 RAM sticks installed, you are not running dual channel.
