redfoxert Posted November 7, 2010 Share Posted November 7, 2010 Hello, I'm currently building the machine as in my profile for my dad. Trying to get the memory kit to work on the Asus mainboard has been a real pain in the ***. So far, all my efforts failed. I've tried numerous combinations of speed, timings, voltages and so on. Using the XMP profile stored in the memory didnt work either. Basically, when the 2 modules are installed, the system is very instable, up to bluescreens during the Windows installation (doesnt matter which version, WXP to W2K8 R2). When only one module is installed, the system is rock solid and I can throw anything against it, it does not go down and Windows 7 installs fine, including updates and Office etc etc. Memtest86+ 4.10 doesnt detect any errors, ran it over 24 hours and roughly 20 passes. Now i've noticed that the 2x4GB kit isnt in the memory configurator, yet the 4x2GB kit (CMX8GX3M4B1333C9) is. Can i conclude from this that my kit is basically never going to work with both modules installed? I have no need for overclocking purposes of some sort, I just want the machine to be stable for the next 3-4 years and possibly keep some memory upgrade options available. Could anyone give me some advise on this matter? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
