Asus rampage extreme + TR3X6G1866C7GTF

Hi guys,

 

received a brand new Rampage Extreme and TR3X6G1866C7GTF but it wont go,

1sec everything "runs" and it shuts down again.

 

I'm not sure how up to date the QVL list of Asus is with the motherboard,

so i kind of took the gamble. now im fairly affraid it's the memory causing the issues.

 

Perhaps anyone with experience that it did work on the rex?

Negative or positive?

 

Els im affraid i need to start looking for something els...

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Both the board and memory came today, and havent been able to get them running yet. i cleared the cmos , removed the battery and refitted the cpu.

 

Everything should function, but it doesnt.

 

Tried the all sticks alone, with 2, different banks, all together,

but nothing seems to help.

 

Thanks

Are you able to get into the BIOS? Also, why a triple kit with a dual channel system?

 

Hi Wired,

 

No. after approx 0,5sec it just turns down again.

so im not able to get in the bios.

 

Reason why i bought it with a dual channel system?

 

It's supposed to be a bench system for overclocking,

so in reality im just going to use 2 sticks of em,

and later for i7 perhaps

 

Thanks

Please list your power supply and a link to the specifications. Also, have you tried posting the system with the MOBO outside the case using only the CPU, GPU, and a single module? What you are describing could be a shorting or grounding issue.

Hi,

 

I'm fairly sure it's not the powersupply, as it's used on the same setup, just not this memory and motherboard.

 

It's bin in and outside the case, and the case was a bench table with 20mm high spacers, so any grounding issue seems unlikely

 

PSU: Coolermaster M620

 

Thanks

Describe your testing a bit more. Do you have both GPUs in your signature installed at the same time?

 

Do you have any other memory available to you to test and see if the MOBO+CPU+GPU+PSU combo you have will POST?

 

Hi mike,

 

no. tried both independant of each other.

 

Unfortunately i dont have any ddr3 laying around,

but you might be right that it's the motherboard causing the issues

and all.

 

PSU, GPU and CPU is something im fairly confident they should work,

since they were in a working system a few days ago.

 

Found out even with no components it still does the same thing,

which is to stop within 0.5 sec.

Did you try the system with just one module and all of them one at a time? If so and you still had the same results I would suspect the MB based on what you have posted.

 

Hi, tried all modules, and in all slots.

I'm fairly sure its the motherboard,

 

Nothing sucks more then waiting for a new thing,

finding out it's actually broken. :/

 

O well,

 

ill fiddle some more, but affraid it's a DOA
