Just trying to help but your a bit argumentative.
Joey, I test memory by the way and I am trying to help.
just let him rma the board, once he gets another back and still dont work then it be time to change the ram then...
Eidair, I am trying to help and I am asking him not you so please help me help him. The Memory is NOT on the list. What else can be clearer.
i rma'd RAM and board and I ordered a new egg special. z77 extreme 4 + 8GB
this is the RAM
Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ...
Hope that works out for ya Joey. I apologize for coming in late... I review memory so I gave it a shot.
You will like the G2. I reviewed them and they worked in every board I had BTW.
no its fine. i will report my findings when all my stuff comes in!
How i will do this :
1) on stick at a time in slots 1 and 3 for dual channel
2) make sure ram is boot-able as signal channel
3) go dual channel.
thanks for trying. again will update once i get the stuff home . order is out, just need to wait 2 or 3 days. prob by this friday the latest.
Btw did you try 2 sticks in and set the bios to 1T ? That is if you can of course. I'm thinking of some weird one in a trillion possibility that the memory has a problem and wont work on 2T whit 2 sticks in.
Anyway the RMA is the best for now.
2T is relaxed command timing which actually reduces the strain on ram and memory controller, so this is possible but not likely
my first intel system is getting annoying ey? lol thnx guys
Well yeah but as you can clearly see this is not something in the "usual problems/fix/solution". It's more out of curiosity if by some mystical universal forces he is in that situation, nothing more.
Neah ... this is why such a community is build ... we just love weird problems and fell the need/addiction to find out what is the fix
ya just like solar flares, electron creep, gremelins, gnomes lol
Sometimes memory is just not compatable with some boards. Poop happens. I had G.Skills new Tridents not work on a Gigabyte board. Who would have thunk? Popped in some kingston Hyper X and Bingo.
All is fixed now, memory instantly boot into dual channel no problems. I switched from my h50 to the hyper212+ (kinda regret that = lots of noise lol) umm only problem i had was with the AHCI or what ever disabled that and put it into IDE. all in all intel is finally starting to behave for me.
different board as of Model and SN, or just SN?
If you was on about my post i said slots 1 and 3 and seeing as i have the same mobo as the op i think i should know if slot 1 and 3 works with dual channel mode and it does.
it dont matter at this point as the guy replaced the board and the problem was solved. Ohwell Crap happens ya know
Yes i got theed z77 extreme 4. Nice mobo way to use and the instaboot feature is bad ass
Glad you got it sorted mate enjoy
Hell yea I am boot up times = like 2 seconds? <3
Just so you know some anti static bags can conduct electricity. I verified this years ago. Note, not all do.
the point of the antistatic bag is to conduct any incoming electricity away from the component inside. So it gets redirected across the bag.
dude he fixed the problem so its done done
I know he's "fixed" the problem. I'm just saying, for future reference that the bags are conductive.
