2 bh5 sticks, only 1 stick recognized


Recommended Posts

Anyone knows why does the DFI NF3 board shows only 256MB in bios and windows with two sticks of BH5 chips. The sticks are different though - mushkin pc3500 (chips on both sides of RAM) and twinmos pc3200 (chips on 1 side of RAM) but both bh5 chips. However, CPUID SPD shows 512MB by spd and that 2 slots are occupied. Tried 2T and changing slots, using 504 4V modded and 504 official bios. CPU is sempron 2600+. Modules work great if installed separately.

 

I tried on my rig NF4 running dual channel but the system won't post at all (tried yellow and orange slots).

 

Does that mean modules won't work together even though they are both BH5?

Mostly yes that is what it means and is why in general it is recommended to purchase all memory at one time and one brand and one lot # if possible.

 

They might work if you do not ask the board to run them by SPD but manually adjust all timings and voltages.
