Hello,

Just finished building a new system and seem to be having some issues with the RAM.

Here are the parts
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cRC8RB

With both sticks of ram populating slots A2 & B2 I cannot even get the system to boot into the BIOS. The DRAM_LED just stays red and I cannot do anything.

I was however able to get the system to boot into the BIOS, install Windows 10, flash the BIOS to the most updated version, overclock my CPU, play games etc. with no stability issues at all while using either of the sticks individually populating slot B1.

But when both sticks are in I cannot get into the BIOS or anything.

Things I have tried without success:

Getting into the BIOS with one stick of RAM and enabling/disabling the XMP profile

Manually setting the RAM speeds in the BIOS to 2133

Enabling/disabling EZ-XMP switch on the motherboard.

Clearing the CMOS.

Trying slots A1 & B1

At this point I honestly don't even care if the modules run at their rated 3000 speed.

Thank you.

Sounds like your motherboard has one or more broken RAM slots.
Do you have some other RAM you can try? if they dont work as well then you know for sure its the motherboard.

No unfortunately I do not have any other RAM laying around to test. Probably later today I will be able to go and buy some from Microcenter to test I guess.

Any other ways to check for dead RAM slots?
