T1m Posted March 4, 2013 Share Posted March 4, 2013 Hi all, I signed up today as I'm looking for some advice. Bit of a noob so apologies if this is in the wrong section. I have done an upgrade recently (new GFXcard , SSD and memory) but had some trouble when re-installing windows on the SSD. It got to the 'Starting windows' splash and then hung. I tried every combination of hardware to try and establish the fault and realized that it worked when I swapped in my old mem. The new memory I was trying to use was CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B. I checked on the compatibility search on the corsair website and found that CML16GX3M4A1600C9B was compatible with my mobo and thought that the memory i purchased was the same, just with larger heatsinks. Was I mistaken to think this or should I start to run some tests to ascertain the health of the memory with a view to replacement? No combination of any amount of the new memory in any of the DIMMs resulted in getting further than the splash screen which made me think the problem ran deeper than just bad memory. Sorry for rambling a bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
