Asrock N68CS-UCC and Corsair Memory Timings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Happy New Year.

I was wondering if someone could help me get my second ram card to work on this Asrock board. It only seems to run one (1) ram card at a time in the first DDR3 slot (blue dimm). When the second MATCHING card is in place the computer will not post, the monitor will not come on, and I do not have a speaker for this board so no beep codes. The cards have been swapped into the first slot and they are NOT defective.
When I remove the second card and run the OS with just one card the settings remain the same but the clock in windows always needs to be reset (if that info helps any...)

I've tried two new PNY ram cards yesterday with the same results, today the Corsair Vengeance cards with the same results. These ram cards did NOT appear on the QVL at the Asrock site but neither did the first ram card the dealer sold me upon purchasing the Asrock board, It was a PNY also.

I was told it was just the Memory Timing that needed to be adjusted for these cards to work, but between resetting the cmos and changing what settings I know of, I am still lost.


Thanks in advance for any help

Ensure everything in the memory timings is set correctly, including secondary timings (you may wish to raise the tRFC to higher levels). If you can (not sure if this board has the option due to the AM2 chipset and such), raise the CPU-NB voltage. Try that single RAM stick in your impossible slot. Defective RAM slots are possible. The lack of appearance on QVL doesn't matter, QVL is mostly irrelevant in a diverse world of RAM models and integrated memory controllers.

Thank you for your response XD...

This is the first time I have ever heard of the secondary timings. Could you possibly tell me which settings those would be? Of course I've seen over 20 different timing settings but I am only familiar with the basics (ie. CL, TRFC)

Also how is the northbridge voltage labeled? Is it simply the one under Memory Timing or might that particular voltage setting be under the CPU Bios settings?

I'm sorry for being ignorant in this matter, but everything I read about TIMING is Greek to me.
