Upgraded MOBO/CPU and now I can't run dual channel!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded my mobo/cpu to Asrock z97 Fatal1ty killer with i5 4690k. On the first boot up I installed all 4x2gb matched G.Skill DDR3 1333 RAM sticks in their appropriate slots. These sticks work I was just using them the same day a few hours earlier for gaming. However, when I tried booting up I kept getting 4 short beeps and no video output. I then took out all the ram and just inserted 1 in slots 3 and 4 (furthest from CPU) and they worked fine. I could even use 2 sticks in those slots and it booted up fine and installed windows 7 no problem but it's still single channel. After I installed windows I tested the other slots with just 1 stick. Slots 1 and 2 (closest to cpu) gave me the 4 beeps again. I tried reseating the CPU. I loosened the 212 evo. Nothing. Only slots 3 and 4 work. I'm away from home right now but I'm trying to do some more research on what I may do. Should I update bios? Try different ram? Is my motherboard DOA? Reset CMOS? Can I run dual channel on the 2 different colored slots that DO work? I may just need to get a single stick of 8gb. Thanks.

I would start resetting CMOS, then trying different RAM if you have some. After that I would update BIOS. After that I would RMA the sucker.
