8 gigs of this, 4x2gb sticks. I'm pretty bummed that it won't work but hopefully I'll be able to rep up here and then sell it to someone else here.
These ones WILL work, Im 99% sure my friend got the excact same RAM on his. And it will surprise me even if its not the excact type, that u should have any problems whatsoever.

Have you tried booting with these? (if u can boot, that is practically the same as= they work.)

if u have trouble, try inserting 1 at the time.

Called up my m8 , he has these running like a blazing monkey 2x2gb, but he said he had to set the timings manually in bios. Hope this info helps

Okay because this is what has happened.

Installed the mobo and tried to boot on default settings. I post everything okay and get to the windows loading screen and it freezes. I have tried with 2 sticks and will try with only 1 each time tonight. No problems with hard drives or cd drives. That is what lead me to believe the memory doesn't work with the board.

But the memory works flawlessly in my msi 770-g45 and boots windows no problem?

EDIT: Did he set the timings to 8-8-8-21 like they are rated for?

I can guarantee you we will get this working one way or another....

My best bet is that 1 stick is faulty, or the timings in bios are wrong.

first check bios for the correct timings, then check 1 after the other.

Memtest is the popular choice when testing ram modules.

Edit: and yeah, he changed the timings.

Okay, well I will take that guarantee from you I am at work now but will definitely attempt this when I get home.

1 stick at a time try to boot and if it doesn't boot then its that stick? And if none of them work the force the 8-8-8-21 timings at 1.5v. Then try again?

Step 1: Boot with all sticks and go into bios, change the timings and check if the voltage is correct, if not change it to 1.5v

Step 2: If u can boot with this but still get freezes without having anything else OC`ed then u probably need to run memtest86+ to check the sticks.


http://www.memtest.org/ burn the iso u download from this site,
it will be a bootable cd/dvd and it automatically starts testing.

Edit: U will have to test each stick induvidually, its a ***** but it has to be done

i had this issue on all my boards with my kingsons, i had to set the timings and voltages manually but one at a time because if i did them all in one go it wouldnt post, thought it was weird but hey.

Well, its pretty much the same as the integrated ones on any motherboard.
However it supports EAX and some other enhancements through software.

Compared to my hd4850 HDMI soundchip its crap compared, but if u use
pc-speakers/headphones I dont think the difference is that noticable.
