Hello, been building a new rig with half spares half new parts and i ran into some issues which i cant resolve as of yet. here are my specs
CPU : i5 661
MOBO: Asus P7P55D
HDD: WD 1TB Black
GPU : Sapphire hd6870
PSU: CM 500w
RAM: (problem area)
now the problem i'm facing is the ram. i have 3 setups,
A 1 stick 8gb 1600 kingston value ram;
B 2 stick 4gb 1600 kingston value ram and,
C 1 stick Mushkin 4gb 1333
i've updated the bios, tried everything in every ram slot, use memOK to underclock the ram. now the thing is with A and B, i can only get so far till windows loading screen and it crash and restart. I realised A is not supported with my MOBO therefore i went B, and it still crash.
with B either trying with 1 stick or 2 stick it still crashes. i tested both sticks in B in another rig seperated from this one and it works perfectly fine. so no ram defect here.
however, when i use C it loads perfectly fine into the home screen. so i'm confused here. what exactly is wrong? is it the ram? the mobo? or something else
