britta.melitta Posted October 24, 2008 Share Posted October 24, 2008 Hi, I recently purchased the above mentioned RAM modules and tried to upgrade my rig (currently using 2x1GB TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX). With the 1GB modules in slots 1/3 and the other 2x2GB in the other slots I got BSOD. Testing with memtest gave me thousands of errors. I tested all four modules at the same time then both new 2GB modules together and finaly each of them on it's own in the first slots. All testing was done with default BIOS settings (1.8v). One of the new 2GB modules worked fine the other one crashed memtest and caused boot problems. Every combination of the modules with the faulty 2GB gave errors. The modules were send back to an UK online shop and replaced. Today I got the new modules and had the same problem. One module is working and the other one doesn't boot at all. Bios post said C1 (Detect memory). To make sure that it's not a voltage problem I tried the faulty module with default CAS settings at 1.8v and at 2.1v. However neither setting worked. As the old pair of 1GB modules is working perfectly on this motherboard I assumed that the new modules would work as well. The chance of getting two faulty pairs is probably not very high. So I'd like to know if there's a known compatibility problem with that motherboard. Many thanks, bm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
