Any educated guesses? I'm shooting in the dark here =(

I use slots A1 and C1, F4-3200C14D-16GTZ.

0019 is 0901, AGESA 1.0.0.4, etc.

0019 has a patch to resolve issues with memory, that some RAM setups encounter on 0901.

All sticks are the same (won't lie, was worried about this a bit), according to Thaiphoon Burner, Samsung B-Die single rank. They do have different temperature sensors, which was curious




I don't think that's the problem. That seems to be an issue when people start pushing or that memory doesn't detect properly...
My motherboard power cycles during memory detection. Part of me THINKS this might be busted, but it's not a happy prospect at all.

I'll try the other BIOS, it's not like there's much else I can do... Hopes aren't high, though, and I really needed this rig to be porperly up and functional by next up

If any of the dissatisfied customers of this board purchased it through Amazon, contact them and explain the issues your facing, they will accept the board back and issue a full refund. No point in begging for support.

As expected, no dice... Also realized I mixed up the slots... I'm using C1 and D1 right now. A1 is the one that gives me the power cycle. Board seems to really not like anything in the black slots. C2+D2 power cycles even faster, A2+B2 post hangs in memory detection



Bonus points for the black and grey slots being opposite on my mobo and the manual?

So yeah... I think I need a new board. Intense sadness detected

The sucker who pays for it is, yup us, enthusiasts. thumb.gif

I wish this would be the case, there needs to be more scrutiny in this industry. The ones who have the power to make a dent are the reviewers, but most are busy trading good reviews for advertisement deals.

Now THAT IS THE TRUTH... Specialty the Youtube branch. Unfortunately, the saying "with power comes responsibility" does not seem to clue some or most of them in. Not at all... They are having a big party mostly looking to be entertainers and not reviewers in a true sense, not at all. The product is not important!

I'm always amazed to seem someone like der8auer (among others) having very few subscribes and then someone like Kyle or Paul having so many. This is also "our" fault, because we give value/power to the wrong folks.

This can be observed other places and in our society generally speaking, it is NOT exclusive to "our branch".

This was very apparent with all the X399 EK block reviews

P.S. @elmor
Thanks for sticking with us / keeping us updated -- dealing with our frustration with Asus

I made the mistake of buying the motherboard on newegg they have the worst RMA service all 4 times it took close to 2 weeks for a new board. It sat in process for days.

now its software that is driving me up the wall
