Rig keeps restarting infinite loop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Got some gskill ares low profile ram, previously was using ripjaws.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231556

When I put the ares ram in, the system reboots every 10 seconds in an infinite loop, and i'm also unable to access the bios. This ram 'should' work with my z77 mobo...

What could the problem be? I know it's not the ram slots as my ripjaws pass memtest no errors on this board.

You can take the working sticks, go to BIOS and set tRFC to 300ish values as some boards are not able to do so automatically.
If this doesn't help, try running Ares sticks separately.

sounds like ram with the wrong timings for your cpu or motherboard, i had the same problem when i incorrectly used the wrong timings in an attempt to oc my ram, did you try reinstalling your old ram and if so did it work , if it worked my guess would be ram with wrong timings for your setup
