[Official] Asus Rampage IV Black Edition Owners Club! - Page 1319

post #13181 of 14775
Well, after quite a while, my RIVBE is back into the field. My 2670 is chugging quite nicely.

I just have one question, it seems some RAM slots are not working (the two at the right of the Power button, C1 and C2). I can run triple channel with no issues with 6 sticks, but nothing i do short of remounting the CPU has worked. And yes, the RAM sticks work. Is there any way to test if these RAM sockets have been damaged somehow?

Tell me about that, it seems my 2 year old problems are caused by slot C1. Now I'm running "triple-channel" and screaming murder because I bought faster sticks because I thought the have slight incompatibility. Next week I'd try to get some reply from Asus support, and meanwhile someone would be nice and write there these DRAM IO L numbers. (Located in tab 3 in MemTweakIt.)

I actually think C2 slot is fine, but of course it will not boot when you populate only A2 B2 C2 D2 slots.


You can place a stick into C1 slot, and try to test it by RAM checker at boot. But some problem happens ONLY when you run full quad channel.

First let me start with I am no expert and I could be completely wrong in this as this is my best "guess" or hypothesis.
That being said: It could be that the system will only run in triple channel because you have 6 sticks of RAM, where 6 is only divisible by 3 and 2 and the system choose the higher. If you have 4 sticks it should run in quad channel, if you have 8 sticks it should also run in quad channel.

Either way I would start with trying it with just two sticks of RAM and so on to see what you come up with. If you run in quad channel with 4 sticks then I'd say you need another two sticks of RAM to run in quad channel.

I've run my 4960X/RIVEBE (rebuild) now for some time and it runs more reliably than my X99 setup which is sitting in a closet in the mean time. While X99 may be faster in some tasks the RIVEBE nowadays I also appreciate functionality over pure speed. redface.gif With Titan Xs in SLI, I can see no difference at all between the two systems in games.

The RAM checker is the same boot sequence before the BIOS screen appears? THe LED by the 24-pin ATX gets stuck in RAM, and the OC panel displays "RAM" to the left of the BCLK.

Done that. I have even filled all #1 slots (A1-D1) and all #2 slots (A2-D2) and the BIOS only recognizes 12 GB RAM.

I have even tried filling all slots to try and get 32 GB RAM, it stops at 24 GB.

I had a similar problem and almost RMA'd my board, but then I pulled my CPU and found a bent pin.
On that note I recommend checking for bent pins under the CPU. Make sure you have plenty of lighting because the MB pins are tiny and they sit at an angle. I almost missed mine but noticed it when I moved my work lamp.

If that stick in C1 slot doesn't even show at BOOT, you have easily recognizable bad slot. (Badly seated CPU is somehow unlikely.) I think I have bad welding at C1 slot, which falls under "it didn't show there" sorts of RMAs.

Look into the RAM slot if there isn't a hair. (I removed a hair from my RAM slot, but it was B1 and it both booted up and worked, just with occasional errors.) Use windblower to remove dust from slot and turn MB upside down during that.



It was late when I posted that. I meant a program burned to DVD which would be used to boot PC and run RAM check without needing OS at all. http://www.memtest86.com/download.htm This one for example.
