Corsair Incompatability with Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H

Recommended Posts

I have just built a new computer. If I have everything hooked up and plugged in, the power goes off just as soon as you turn it on. If I disconnect all but the 24pin and 4 pin MB connectors, it stays on long enough to give a memory fault, maybe 2 secs or so. The Foxconn tech support suggested that the RAM is bad. The PSU was tested and is good, so that's not the problem. Would incompatible RAM cause a system shutdown? If so, any ideas as to how I can fix the prob?

Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
