jpuffer44 Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 As of now, I have no hope my problem will be resolved. That said, why am I sending this? Answer: maybe I actually will get a small bit of satisfaction. The situation: I went to the Corsair website's Memory Configurator to find out which modules would work with my motherboard, an Iwill DPI533. The configurator had many modules that supposedly are acceptable. I chose the TWINX2048-3200C2PRO (same as TWINX2048-3200C2 except have led lights). These happen to have been on sale at Newegg so I bought them. The computer would not only not boot to Windows XP, it wouldn't POST, giving me unending long beeps on powerup. OK, so I posted a message to this forum looking for help. I received one reply that had several suggestions, none of which applied or were even possible with this motherboard: (1) change from cas 2 to cas 3 in bios: not possible with this board, only settings are 1.5, 2, 2.5 (2) change vDIMM voltage from 2.5 to 2.7 or higher: no vDIMM adjustments are possible with this motherboard. OK so then I called Corsair tech support. Result: the guy I talked to had no knowledge of this board or its compatibility with any Corsair memory. His only suggestion: put just one of the memory modules in and see what happens. The Iwill DPI533 requires 2 identical modules and the manual warns in BOLD TYPE to NEVER put just one module in the board. I wasn't willing to go against the Iwill warning. Besides there is nothing wrong with these 2 Corsair modules. It's a compatibility issue brought on by Corsair's incorrect recommendation in the first place. Am I willing to pay the re-stocking fee to Newegg for a situation caused not by me but by Corsair. No I am not. What do I want from Corsair? I want 2 1 gb modules that will work with this board or, barring that seemingly simple request, a full refund (including shipping) for a problem neither I nor Newegg caused! If you've read this far I thank you for your interest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
