RAM slots deffective?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I have a bit of a problem. I just went from a 3570K to a 3770K on my Sabertooth board, I had removed the RAM to aid in getting the water cooler block off a bit easier. All went well with the installation and the CPU and block are seated properly, however the PC didn't POST. I managed to narrow it down to the RAM slots A1+A2.

Here is what I have tried so far:

-Tested all Ram sticks for functionality, OK
-Boot with only one stick banks B1+B2 booted ok, A1+A2 nothing
-Tried A2+B2 nothing
-Tried all slots and resetting the BIOS back to default, nothing
-mem OK! botton, useless.
-BIOS Update to v2003, nothing

I am a bit of a loss, anything else I can try? If not... how would I go about getting this board RMA'd? (Location Germany)

Any help would be much appreciated!

Edit: After searching a bit more I managed to find an old similar thread but it didn't say anything solution wise: http://www.overclock.net/t/1194922/asus-p8p67-pro-rev3-1-memory-slots-a1-a2-dead/0_20

Could be the IMC of the 3770k.

Have you tried with your 3570k again?

IMC?

But no I have not. Is there something that could cause that from the CPU end? If so, I'll give it go tonight when I get home.

Edit: Ahh Internal Memory Controller, I had thought though that if it is defective it no longer boots at all (POST)? Either way... it wont hurt to try.

Found the problem. Somehow I managed to nick 2 pins on the CPU socket. RMA will not be an option then I guess. Thanks for your help though!
