blitz07 Posted March 11, 2013 Share Posted March 11, 2013 I recently completed an RMA for a set of CMP8GX3M2B1333C9 [Ver5.11] that had one faulty module. Unfortunately, the particular modules were discontinued and was instead sent a set of CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 as replacement. I thought there would be no problem since I had already installed 1600 MHz Ram dual channel set on my PC that worked without a problem. The system just lowered the speed to 1333 MHz instead of 1600, which is fine. The problem is with the new ram [CMP8GX3M2A1600C9][Ver3.24]. I cannot get my computer to boot into bios. I've tried putting both modules, then one module only, and also tried resetting the bios to no avail. The SPD for this ram is rated at 1333 Mhz @ 9-9-9-24 timings--although it an go to 1600 MHz. Which should make it Identical to the old ram I had [CMP8GX3M2B1333C9]. Did I receive a set of faulty ram? Update: Upon further research I think the problem might be the different versions of the ram. If not mistaken, the old ram used 256Mx8 IC's while the new ram uses 512Mx8 IC's. ~Bios is up to date. How can this be resolved? Thanks! PS. RAM GUY: I sent you a message, but i'm not sure if you check messages. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
