Right now 1-4 are set to raid and contain my raid 0 and 2 stand-alone SSDs. 5-6 are my DVD drives. You think I should put my SSD boot drive on 5 or 6 in IDE mode?

I have ASUS Crosshair Extreme IV and my G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 is getting me the BSOD. Is there any way to fix this or do I need to get new RAM?

Thanks!!

Not if you have DVD drives installed on 5-6. Just making a suggestion if you only had one device on channels 5 or 6. wink.gif

Are you Overclocking? If so I'd suggest pulling sticks 2 and 4 if you're on a Quad CPU as your system should be more stable with 2 sticks instead of 4 and seeing how it works. It's not necessarily the fault of the RAM. If it is still crashing then try booting with only 1 stick in the 1st slot, shut down, replace it, rinse and repeat to find out if you have a bad stick.

I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1100T 3.3GHz. Since the ram is set up for a quad kit will it work with only 1, 2, or 3 sticks?

Thanks!

Is this ram on qvl list? I would try half the ram at 1333mhz. I had similar issues. My board was very picky.

No its not on there.

It should. My bro was running 12GB (2x2 & 2x4) on his M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 for months without issue until he replaced the 2x2 Gig kit. Will work just fine with only 2 sticks though. I'm running GSkill Ripjaws X 1600 2x4 Gigs on my Formula without issue. thumb.gif

The SSD's need to be on either AHCI or Raid on ports 1-4 as you have twin optical drives.
They will function as single drives until you create another array.


Make sure you research which program the SSD manufacture uses to rate there product. Using the wrong benchmark will give different values that probably won't match what the manufacture lists. I'm not sure which one yours uses. You should read through this if you haven't already http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread I believe this where I found which program goes with each manufacture.

For more performance you could flash the 2002 mod bios which uses the latest 990 chipset Raid Rom and AHCI drivers. It works great!

Yes but,
Use one stick at a time for testing (MemTest86), after that AMD platform prefers 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32GB kits. Intel uses 6, 12GB etc. I know people run 6 and 12GB on there AMD setup but you have to remember dual channel mode isn't supported. It'll limit performance (being nice here biggrin.gif)
The matched kit you have can be run as a 2 x 4 kit too.

As for the "Not on the QVL"? Take a look at my rig sig below. I ran GSkill 17000 XLD (2133MHz) both at 2006MHz and 1946MHz @ 9-11-9-28-33 on my CHIV passing 28 hrs of Prime95 and a whole lot more. It definitely wasn't plug and play but after manually entering all the specs and playing with the Dram voltage a bit, it works like a dream!
