g41m-vs3 post with 8gb ram?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i recently bought a g41m-vs3 for my xeon e5450, i also bought 8gb(2x4gb) of gskill sniper 1600 ram. when i put in the ram it does not post. the ram is working excellent as i tried it in a relatives computer.

i put in a 2gb stick of gskill ripshaw 1600 ram, and it posted right away, while i did this i updated the bios from 1.0 to 1.80 as suggested by googling. the motherboard has to over clock to get a speed of 1333,but when i use the 1600 ram it automatically downgrades to 800,so why doesnt my 8gb do the same?

after bios update, i put in the 8 gb of gskill sniper...and still does not post, put the 2gb ripshaw, and posted right away again.

i've seen several people here with the same motherboard with 8gb of ram...what do i need to do to get this to work?

problem solved.

sad to say the g.skill sniper ram 1600 8gb(2x4gb) is NOT compatible. i tried everything, it doesnt work with the motherboard.

i borrowed a set of 8gb(2x4gb) g.skill ripjaw ram 1600, and it posted just fine. so i traded my sniper ram for ripjaw.

they are only running at 1334 because the motherboard has to overclock to 1333. but at least its working.
