vengeance 8 gb ram with I5 core. says compatible but not working.

Ive been working on this all day. bout time to ask the experts here.

im running my rig at this moment, perfect no problems.

I have a P8P67 pro rev 3.1 board.

running Corsair 2 (4 gb sticks) ram (cmzz4gx3m1a1600c9b)

with my g840 2.80 ghz 3 mb cache lga1155 65w (bx80623g840)

The above works great. (BUT <-- big but thats angering me.)

When I put the Brand new i5-3570k 3.40 ghz 6 mb cache lga 1155 77w. (bx806371535700k)

in my computer the memok light kicks on solid......

oh ok simple fix push the button so it blinks a zillion times. nothing
reset cmos. nothing.
remove one stick of ram and run only 4 gigs in A2 dimm slot. nothing.

Im currently running both sticks in A2 and B2.

Obviously all i want to do is run my i5 so if i need to buy new ram so be it, what do i buy.

Thanks for the help.

  1. Do you have the latest BIOS for the mobo? Will at a minimum need the BIOS that updated the mobo to the code for the IB 3570K CPUs, if already have latest BIOS, try resetting the CMOS the Boot
  2. I know this sounds dumb and what not. but how can i tell what version i have and whats the latest update. because i havent done anything with my bios.
