how to get all 12gb running on rampage?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I have an asus rampage 3 and 12gb of corsair xms3 1333mhz ram.I bought 6gb ages ago and another 6gb recently.I made sure it was the same make and frequency and timings and all that but bios and windows only shows 8gb.I am sure I inserted it the right way but I will try again.

I was wondering if i would have to change any voltage settings or frequency settings in the bios to get them all running? and can you tell me what to change and the numbers i need to input. sorry, i'm a complete noob.

the ram is set to 1066mhz on the bios for some reason.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

for the people who commented on my last thread about no display if your reading:

it was the graphics card.I blew both the 5850's but i went to the shop and said that it was faulty so i coughed out an extra 40 quid for the gigabyte 6850 and now its all sorted. thanks for all your comments.I appreciate it. but i now have a useless broken 5850 sitting there, at least i got a exchange for the other one.

An increase in dram bus voltage might help.
When I install new hardware I ALWAYS default BIOS, del to bios F5/F10.
But thats me, not everyone does and has no problems.
Make sure sticks are correctly snug fit.

If you have dram bus on auto, manually set it to ram specs v, a notch higher with 12g ram
Thats a lot of memory!

del to bios / ext tweak menu / scroll to ai oc tuner / it will be hilited white /
press enter / select manual / press enter /F10(save)
At desktop del to bios again , scroll to dram bus / with keyboard type 1.65v / press enter / F10
Since you have 12g enter 1.66v , a notch higher than spec, if spec is 1.65v.

Set qpi/dram core to 1.25v , this might help too.Set it just like you did on ram bus.

* keep qpi/dram core voltage within .5 (1/2) volt of dram bus volts, or damage hardware.
1.66 - 1.25 = .41v diff, within envelope.

Also you asked about ram set to 1066Mhz.
You need to manually change that, could be problematic with 12g vs 6.
In ext tweaker menu bios, scroll to dram freq ,press enter , select next highest freq above 1066,
( will be 6 freq choices there), press enter / F10

You could get locked bios / no post so be ready, due to the amount of ram.
You can also increase IOH core voltage to help, just a small notch over default amount.

If for any reason pc fails to post,locks or otherwize no screen, power off pc unplug power 5 mins,
power up and del to bios ,F5 /F10.
or
Power off unplug ,remove cmos battery, replace/power on to bios F5/F10.
or if you are lucky cmos button on MB will work instead.

These are just some things I would try with 12g ram.

All you have to do is go into the bios then "extreme tweaker" then change "memory config protect" to "disabled" than it should work. If it dosent go into msconfig and uncheck max memory
