At first I thought my Taichi was DOA , but when I replaced the kit with some 2600MHz ballistix ram from my friend the PC posted. Is there a way to make them work or should I just return them and get a refund ?
The 4266 gskill should post at base speed. If it is not posting at all there may be a problem with the kit itself.
You might try
1) Testing the kit in the computer the 2600 mhz ballistix lived in
2) Insert 1 stick. Start your pc and go do something while it tries to train. don't interrupt. If posts then try second. same thing while it trains. If it posts with one and not the otehr, refund time.
If it posts with both separately but doesn't want to post with both
3) With one stick installed. Manually setting ram voltage, vtt. save and restart.. manually set timings, save and restart.. manually set lower speed, I'd suggest one of the lower ones. 2933, 26.. 24.. save and restart, shut down.
Then, last big jump. both sticks at once watch the ryzen post dance and goodl uck.
