G.Skill and Gigabyte scammed me. Help! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Looks like the other thread was 86'd rather than merged. So I'll ask it again here - have you tried using the ram? It sounds like you bought a kit of ram a year ago, never used it, now can't find it on some QVL, so deduce for yourself that you've been scammed. As to why it costs more, DDR4 prices across the board have skyrocketed in the last year from what I can tell.

So try it - it's not going to damage anything if your ram isn't on the QVL.

For instance, I bought this ram:

F4-3600C15D-16GTZ

My motherboard is not listed on the G.Skill QVL

It works in my motherboard, and is listed on my motherboard's QVL

I did use it. That's why i've been posting here. There's no way I would of done this without trying it first. I literally got a blue screen on default timings. It happened when I was sleeping, so I have no idea when exactly it happened.

So on my end, it was like, "k, but you just posted that." smile.gif It looks pretty funny in the Unanswered threads to see more than one thread for the same thing. It seems to be a rule on here though that we can't have more than one thread for the same topic though.

A lot of people just go to "new post", which is why sometimes old threads get revived and continued years later haha.

Are you sure the blue screen was because of the ram?

If you are getting bluescreens instead of PC not running at all you probably just need a bit of tweaking on the timings and the RAM will be stable.
I think you can do memory tests with Prime95 to test the stability faster.
If I was in your situation I'd try loosening the primary timings by 1-1-1-3 and check if that's stable, if it is I'd try returning them 1 by 1 to the XMP values and see which one needs to stay at +1 and probably the other ones will be stable at XMP values.
I couldn't understand too much of your problem, but I think instead of spending 1 year with this you should've tested them properly as soon as you got them because you could've simply returned them in (2 weeks?) no questions asked AFAIK.
About the compatibility list - you just need to find that the products are compatible in either of the 2 lists, the Gigabyte one should be showing what specific RAM modules have been tested on this specific board, the G.Skill one should be showing what specific motherboards has this RAM module been tested in.

I have new RAM coming in today. They are going to be the lowest my mobo suports. 2133 MT/s. And i'm only running default on my 3200 MT/s TridentZ
