Have them running at 1600Mhz CL 9-9-9-24, Gskill Ripjaws.

I would stick with RipJaws if I wasn't planning on putting a block on Doms.That's why I want Doms. Don't feel like doing a ton a work and borking warranties on the RAM when I can just detach the tops and mount a block on Doms easy peasy. thumb.gif

I like GSkill RAM, I do. But with this kit not allowing the system to POST and the heatsinks being pretty flimsy after not even a full year of use out of them, I think that it's time for a change. Might come back to GSkill later for other builds but not for this one. wink.gif

sup people im in need of some help. iv got a problem .recently i did a windows update and i was messing arond testing diffrent ram settings and stuff.but when i restarted my computer i was faced with a screen saying new cpu installd press f1 for setup or f2 to load system defults..if i clicket setup and tryd to change any settings within the bios. .when i saved changes and rebooted i was faced with the same screen again..it would only work if i pressd f2..but doing that would switch all settings in bios to auto. and give me a 3.2 clock speed :S i tryd turning of the computer swichign of the psu and unplugging it and pressing the cmos switch. but that dident fix it. i then tryd flashing the bios to the latest.but that dident fix it i tryd flashing the bios back and it still dident fix it. eventuly though i managed to fix it temporerly buy pressing restart untill it posted wihtout the screen and booted into windows..the first time it took 3 atempts.. on the second try when i resttarted it took me 8 atempts beffor it would work...right now im running my overclock profile and i am in windows but i am afrade to restart incase this dose not work again.....dose anyone have any advise?

Already tried POSTing with GSkill Ripjaws 2x4GB, RJX 2x4 and 2x4 of GSkill Snipers. All 1600 series and all with 2 and 1 stick variations. System will NOT go through DRAM.
Also tried a set of OCZ Gold Z3 Series 1333 2x4GB both one and 2 sticks.
It's not a need to go 1866 or 2000 but more of a preference to give me some headroom to OC the RAM by Multiplier to see how tight I can trim up the Frequency w/o going over spec'ed rating.
I'm running 2002 already so I'm not sure why exactly it's having an issue with 1055T, but I have a 1100T handy that I can throw at it too. But since it's not POSTing on 2002 with the RAM that I do have I'm thinking that it won't matter what I put in it and just wish to save a couple steps if I can with my loop having been refilled. This is the fourth time in the last few days that my loop has been drained and refilled. who-let-rip-smiley.png
No I don't NEED to get them in 2000 series but I think that getting Doms again is the way to go.
I've Reseated the CPU, changed TIM, reseated the block a number of times, figured out that the CPU light stayed lit and didn't blink w/ no RAM in sockets but DRAM didn't blink at all. Didn't even attempt to come on which was expected with no RAM in place but it cleared the CPU from the list of suspects. thinking.gif Although it's still a possibility if the BIOS somehow got borked.
The trouble here really is going from Quad to Hexacore with an Overclock on board. But I've cleared the CMOS by hand and by lifting the Battery for 24hours. That SHOULD have cleared the frickin thing. My next step will probably be flipping the 1055 over to this M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 and reattempting POST with the 965 that's in it. If both systems fire up as I expect they should, then it will just confirm what I suspect and that being that RAM that is not on the QVL and being OC'ed to 1600 blocked the upgrade. If the 965 fails to POST then it's the Board. There are not too many steps here that I have left to do. mellowsmiley.gif
Getting Doms though is what I was already going to do and I know they work having run them on Day 1. smile.gif

if you narrow it down to your board put that extreme in it to see if that will post

I don't think this board is compatible with 4gb modules at all. Is it because the six core amds have suck memory controllers? Possibly. I personally feel that we all got ripped off here. I know this board has been out for a while but its taken this long to realize based on its performance with different ram modules and i have tried three different sets. This issue about 'press F1 to continue Overclock settings failed' is also too familiar. Whenever I get that one I have to go into bios and resave settings. I think we all should write to Amd as a collective whole and tell them were not going to support their products anymore.

I have a Crosshair IV with an 1100T running 16gig of G.Skill RipjawsZ @ 1866Mhz with no problems, the board has also ran 16gig of 1600Mhz, 16gig of 2000Mhz and 16gig of 2133mhz ram OK, are you sure it's not the modded BIOS you are using?

In the midst of my own issues with my upgrade, I would have to say that you're taking it out on the wrong manufacturer if you're having problems with the Board you're on. The CPU while being an intricate part in the system is not capable of directing traffic if the board is not directing each lane properly.

That's kind like blaming the cop because your car stalled on the Freeway. Yeah it's his fault. rolleyes.gif

@Mistral... if your question was to me, I am using 2002 BIOS an it's not letting me POST no matter what I install for RAM at the moment. Doing a little swap here in a bit to a CPU that I know for a fact is working and has been in my Formula build to see if it's just the board being finicky or if it's something else. smile.gif

Hi, been running this rig for over a year now with zero big issues, still have the 1203 bios. Wondering if I should update to the 2002 bios? Been getting a bit of conflicting info as to this, some say bios should only be flashed if you are having serious issues, while others seem to thing keeping the bios up to date is an essential update.

I wouldn't suggest moving up in BIOS unless you upgrade or system is unstable. No need to. thumb.gif
