OZC RAM Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi @ all

 

I have massive problems with my new OCZ Perfomance PC3200 1024mb stick, my rig doesnt boot... Neither the orange slot nor the yellow one ... i have manually adjusted the timings but it still doesnt boot... do i have to adjust the voltage ? i am afraid of blowing my kingston ram up after raising voltage because with the ozc i am not able to enter bios. Does anyone know what to do ?

If you are trying to mix the OCZ and Kingston, good luck. These boards do not like mis-matched pairs. You will likely spend a lot of time trying to find loose Genie BIOS settings, if you even can.

 

Run one stick in the orange slot farthest from CPU

How long have you had the OCZ memory? If you just got it, and you can’t get the computer to boot, you may need to RMA the memory. First, I would suggest posting your problem in this forum. http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=46 An OCZ rep will respond. They are excellent to work with.

 

Your psu might be part of the problem also. Take a look at the psu sticky. http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10854

I think I have a similar problem. I upgraded to 2x1GB OCZ Titanium sticks from 2x512MB Performance series. I can only run one stick at at time. If I put in 2xTitanium sticks then my computer beeps and the light under the power button blinks. If I only put 1 Titanium stick in then I can boot up fine. Both sticks work alone but not together.

 

Here are my specs:

500W Ultra PSU X-connect (I know it is 20-pin and I'm not adhering to the min requirements. I have a 24pin psu in another computer I will swap and see if it works this weekend)

1x1GB OCZ Performance (trying to make it 2x1GB)

WD 200GB 7200RPM drive

Seagate 120GB 7200RPM

Maybe a Lite-on dvd-rom

Samsung DVD+/-RW

AMD64 3500+

eVGA 7800GT

DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D

 

I'm thinking it might be a PSU problem and I will know for sure when I swap PSU for a native 24pin one.

Which slots are you putting the memory in? Try putting one stick in the orange slot closest to the edge of the board, then run memtest. You will find memtest in the BIOS. If that stick is ok, replace it with the other stick, and run memtest again. If that is ok, then place the two sticks in the two orange slots. If the computer will not boot with one of the sticks, then you probably have a bad stick. Do not mix the 512 sticks with the one gig sticks at this time. Are the 512 sticks also OCZ? If not, don't use them.

 

I would also suggest spending some time reading the stickies at the top of the forums. There is a wealth of info on memory and psu’s there.

All the ram I buy is OCZ. I've tried all combinations of RAM in all the slots (not literally but almost).

 

Currently I have a 1GB stick of OCZ in the orange slot farthest from the CPU. Before upgrading my RAM I had both orange slots with 512MB.

 

Initially I tried running 3GB of ram 2x1GB and 2x512MB but I got the same problem that I got with 2x1GB. I've read the stickies on RAM and PSUs. I've also tried putting a 1GB stick and 512MB stick in the orange slots but got the same problem.

 

I'll try to run memtest today but I'm not sure I'll be able to. Honestly, do you think that not using a 24 pin PSU cause this to happen because I'm using an adapter. I am not running SLI and I am not OC'in so I'm not using my PSU to the max. I don't think it is the PSU but I'll test that this weekend if memtest doesn't solve my problems.

 

I will also try clearing cmos and updating the bios. I wish DFI would make a bios updating program like MSI's LiveUpdate. It was so easy to update the bios on my MSI mobo.....(sigh)...

Which Bios version are you running on your board? Try your memory in the orange slots and see if your system boots okay? First i would do a clear cmos for some time before trying this procedure. Take the Kingston out, because it's not going to happen bro, try selling them if you can, because no Value ram on DFI even mixed. Good Luck!

 

Note: Make sure you have enough power to your motherboard (4 power connectors connected to motherboard) and if that still doesn't work, either one of your memory is bad, or need a better PSU. :)

You need to read the Forum Rules regarding sig with system specs available. Thank you
