AMD AM3+ Overclocking Problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I recently ordered 2 sets of 4x4 DDR3 1600 G.skill ripjaws x ram. Installed them in my sig rig, with a 3.8 ghz phenom x4 965BE @ 1.41v, NB OC'ed to 2400, and ram at stock speed 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5v

The computer was perfectly stable prior to the ram. When I added the ram it posted and ran windows fine, I ran prime 95 for 3 hours with no issues. I proceeded to power down the computer and remove the new set of ram and replaced them with the 2nd new set of ram for testing purposes. The computer failed to post, so, thinking I had a bad batch of ram, I installed the previously tested ram, the computer failed to post. Then I installed my old ram that I had initially replaced, the computer failed to post.

I installed the ram set that successfully ran prime95 for 3 hours and increased the voltage to 1.55, it booted fine, but when I put my normal overclock values back in with stock ram speeds/latency the computer failed to post. Now anything other than default CMOS reset settings causes a failure to post, I don't get a bsod, black screen, nada. This is very frustrating having to reset the cmos every time I try to adjust something.

On another note, can you put the cmos reset pin on backwards/incorrectly? I don't know how many times I've dropped the stupid thing and have had to fish it out with toothpicks.

Sorry for the rant... just venting.. I've been at this for 4+ hours. =(
