Problem with RAM, I think

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I purchased a Asus M4A79XTD EVO, and some Mushkin 1066 DDR3 2GB x2. After I set everything up, started the computer, it has power but won't POST. I looked at the memory support list and Mushkin isn't on it at all. Is it possible that I could run the RAM or do I have to get some from the support list?

Everything plugged in?
The Mushkin memory is generic, there should really be no memory support issues at all even if not on QVL.

Have you tried the RAM kit on another board?
May simply be a DOA kit
post #9 of 18
Do you have the 8 pin CPU power plugged in? Not just the 4 pin. I believe you need both for x6's.

BIOS flash matey....bet this board wont support the x6 without a new bios

Problem is youll need another AMD chip to pop in to do it (had this the first time i ever bought a Crosshair III

ALso, if you try and boot up without RAM installed, do you get an error beepy?

BIOS defo ---> Phenom IIX6 1090T(HDT90ZFBK6DGR),3.2GHz,125W,rev.E0,SocketAM3, 6-Core ALL 2003

Need bios 2003 to get it up and running
