i had the same problem with my formula z and cant remember what i done last time am sure it was down to needing a reseat of the ram sticks or i had the wrong slots and my ram aint on the qvl list

sounds silly but did you check the tabs at the end of each ram slot was clipped in correctly or that they are fully push the sticks into the slots and have you tried blowing the slots out or cleaning the contacts on the ram

Yeah I can insert any stick into any slot on the mobo and it will detect 8GB no problem. but as soon as I put in the 2nd one it tells me only 7.90 usable. lol and I tried both stick by itself to make sure one of them isnt bad.

Editt:// I just tried resitting the stick in the dimm A2 and it booted up so I proceeded to insert stick # 2 into dimm B2 and *** it worked........( I also blew some air in the can towards the slots (maybe there was a spec in there chillin or something)




am I all good?

Now I am worried whether I should still send this board back?
post #18 of 25
run some tests and use it for your normal day to day things and see if all is fine if all is good thumb.gif
if not then send it back

so far so good running them at 1866 1.55v 10-11-10-30 factory timings. ran prime95 blend test for some time on stock clock 4.0ghz and 1.35vcore and everything seems to work properly. I am just worried that when I upgrade to some 2133mhz memery sometime soon I might run into the same issue....

might just have been a speck of dust in the ram slot.
