Hi,

 

The TW3X4G1600C9D doesn't seem to work with this motherboard. I have very serious cold start issues - most of the time the system doesn't boot at all.

Can you please confirm that the TW3X4G1600C9D isn't compatible?

 

Thanks!

Chris

I was hoping somebody might have more insight into the memory issue with TW3X4G1600C9D and Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H.

Will try competitor that starts with K, second letter i, then n, g, st and ends in "on" 1600MHz memory with the board - any recommendations?

Those modules should work however most likely you will need to slow the memory frequency down slightly. Try running at 1333MHz at 9-9-9-24. Let me know the results.

Hi!

 

Sorry to bump an old thread, but since the problem is connected to this, I thought I shouldn't open a new one...

 

I just bought a Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H; according to http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.aspx?id=1529942, I bought the Corsair kit TW3X4G1333C9DHX.

 

Now for the fun part: when I put the memories in dual channel (slots 1+2 or 3+4) the system freezes. When I run the Windows 7 memory test (the one you can select at boot time), when the test reaches 10% I get a message that there are hardware issues.

When I put the memories in single channel (tested them in slots 1+3 and 2+4) everything works ok.

The BIOS is set to AUTO.

 

Is this a memory issue, a motherboard issue or just a tweaking issue? I don't like the idea of overclocking, so I always use the "Auto" settings, but I'd like to try to make it work, before sending back the motherboard and/or memories...

 

The timings in auto are 9-9-9-24.

Try setting the timings manually to 9-9-9-24-2T and bump the memory voltage to 1.65-1.7v. It is possible your board/cpu will only run them in single channel at those speeds. If this is the case there should be some documentation in the motherboards manual.
