I wish I had four matched sticks of ram or well at least 2 pairs of identical matched pairs of ram to test and help you out w/that question. I have never had 4 matched pairs of ram for testing in any of my 939 rigs. I would suggest trying only two sticks in just the two yellow slots to see if you can even get the system to post using only the yellow slots and let us know if it works for you

what about just the new sticks in orange?

Also do a cmos reset (hard reset, with no power + battery pull). This is what got mine working when I couldn't get it to boot with two sticks when it worked with 1.
nate are you merged over to the DFI board or do you still want to keep it listed in your sig as in da closet???

yup single beep is mem detect failing. clean the slots.

hahaha, yeah well technically that board is still sitting
the new one is sitting too, I guess, but it works. I'm not migrated yet. I still want to reinstall windows but I guess I could transplant first and reformat later if problems pop up.
Would MSI sound software (I use it as a software equalizer, but it might control drivers or something too) mess stuff up because the DFI uses a different sound chip?
I think that's the only non-NF4 driver I have.

Well you can remove the sound card drivers before you migrate. The nic chips may be slightly different on the new board as well make sure you don't need to remove those before you migrate. What kind of nic chips are on the neo. Just trust me "take the green pill, red is too hot and blue takes you to the dark side.

GuardianOdin, just out of curiosity but is the jumper on JP17 (DRAM 4V) on the 2-3 position? Try out Nate's suggestion and see if just those two sticks of memory work in the Yellow dimm slots.

Good luck

Trying to find the manual right now to check.


Good news: The first Yellow slot is working fine with the first orange slot. I know the second orange slot works. I'll be testing the second yellow in a few.

GuardianOdin, disregard my request if it's working. The JP17 jumper is on the upper right corner of the motherboard. Sorry I should have mentioned that.

Did you clean the DIMM slots out to get it to work?

Good luck

N2Gaming, my A8NSLI-Deluxe (currently out for RMA) was running at a stable 300fbs when it died, with no chipset voltage increase. I was running BIOS 1405 and just left my DDR500 timings on auto with 2.9 volts.

Thanks Pest, Ah ha I did not confuse you w/Pez ya!!!!!!

I am running memtest ATM but my mobo for some reason will not run the ram at DDR500 speeds. I have the 1409 bios atm and will try my ddr400 OCZ ram next to see if I can get any better clocks w/this mobo. I really hope it's just a ram issue and not the mobo. Ram is much easier to replace. in any case I will let you all know my findings.

If any one should call ASUS and talk to Pattric ask to be transfered immediately or hang up and call back, that's all I'm gonna say about that. I love Asus but he does them no justice.
