Exactly what DRAM do you have, the model #, and does the '2 x' mean two sets, 2 sticks, or what? big differences of a single set of 2 sticks or 2 packages of DRAM. Good thing is I'm running the 3570K on the same mobo and have had good luck running tons of different sets, should be able to get this to work
OK, no problem, first thing, just for future ref and info, it's not a good idea to mix packages of DRAM even of the same exact model, it can prove to be problematic. That being said, let's get to work, first, it's a good idea to have the latest BIOS, though if you recently got the mobo it should have one that'll work. Let's have the sticks in slots 1-3 from CPU, and initially try setting the freq manually to 1600, set the base timings manually 10-10-10-27, CR to 2T, and DRAM voltage to 1.55, also go to the CPUVTT voltage and set it to 1.14 then give it a whirl and let me know, I'll be out for about an hour and half then be back and check the boards here.
On the tweaking page, believe 1 or 2 down from the XMP option, take a look , if you don't see it, (think it's timing Options or DRAM timings) if you don't see it, let me know and I'll boot and check am recording a movie on this rig right now, so it may be a little while)
Okay (on cell atm) soon as I'm done on metro ill change the timing. One odd non ram question if you know. My ports are working for my front and rear headphone jacks but it won't pick up my mic no matter what (though) it detects it. I did the dricers over checked to see if the volume was low. I have the hd audio plugged in but one of my pins had no slot to go in near there so its unplugged. Think it might be that? Or do you know the writing that goes on the mobos mic plug in?
