shaiton Posted July 20, 2009 Share Posted July 20, 2009 Hi there, am coming from http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=128733.msg969494. I bought a new config 2 weeks ago, and I was unable to boot. I bought a low cost RAM running at 1333Mhz, and was able to boot. My question is: does my RAM should works with my motherboard ? The RAM that I want to use is a Corsair XMS3 1GB 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 (CM3X1G1600C9DHX) and my mainboard i a 790FX-GD70 from MSI. On the MSI website, we can read: • Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600*/1800*/2133* (OC) SDRAM, 16GB Max So I need to overclock my motherboard ? (What exactly ?) I have updated the bios (V1.3 04272009) but still not booting (there is a debug screen on the motherboard which shows "FF" (processor) - "d3" (1 slot of RAM recognition) and then reboot (FF-d3-FF-d3 ...). I've increased the DRAM voltage until 1.80V (as labeled on the stick) - using the low cost RAM because I can't access the boot with the Corsair ones (I have 2*1GB). I've also tried to change the speed to 1600Mhz but still not working. What should I try ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
