Intel 1366 Pin placement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I am having some issues with my i7 920 and Rampage III Extreme regarding the memory not be detected problem.

The thread is here

Anyway I have troubleshooted the problem down to bent CPU pin (with help from others)

Could someone please tell me what pic in the 1366 socket touched the actual IMC (Integrated Memory Controller)

I will attach a pic of the socket and circle the one pin that was slightly bent that I bent back.

Thanks Guys

Hey, i looked through the other thread and it seems that you have gone and changed the conductance of the pin you bent.

This means that the amount of voltage going through the pin has changed as a result of you changing the width of the pin at the point where it bent.

I did the same thing and the exact same issue was popping up for me. After calling up ASUS a number of times, they recommended an RMA. Your CPU will not convey power through that contact anymore so that part of the CPU will receive less power.

If i were you i would just RMA it, they replaced mine, cycle was 10 days or so.


Hope the issue resolves itself though.

Hope this helped.

Hey I was having the problem on a previous Rampage III Extreme as well and RMA'ed that one for other reasons.

Now I am having the same issue with another board?

And every now and again it is still picking up the 6gb of RAM

I recommend RMA as well..... ASUS still cross-ships as far as I know (at least they did for my Striker II Extreme a few months ago so... yeah)

and as for how strict they are about board condition mine had dielectric grease all over and vegetable oil residue all in the slots (it was submerged in vegie oil for a couple months.....)
see: http://www.overclock.net/cooling-experiments/605174-mini-fridge-can-cool-pc.html

Pics show a different board yeah but I was waiting on my first cross-ship from asus as the board came doa (look closely at the pics you'll see the striker ii box holding up one side of my "oil tub")

oh and that one had not only dielectric grease and vegetable oil but silicone sealant too because I didn't think to test it before going through all the condensation proofing....

EDIT: Forgot to mention still using same CPU, GPU and RAM.... lol
