  3. From what my tech savy freinds have told me yes that the ram i have is compatible with my motherboard.The ram just arrived today so I have not tested it in other rigs.
  4. No sound, no beep?
  5. No beeps no sounds just the red leds on the motherboard
  6. It's hard to tell by the picture, but what slots is your ram in? Counting from the CPU socket, try sticking them in slots 2 and 4.
  7. Socket AM3+ 990FX ATX - DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 MHz

    AMD FX CPUs support 1866MHz memory with one DIMM per channel and 1600MHz memory with two DIMMs per channel. You will need an extreme overclock to use that DDR3 2400MHz.
  8. I think the problem is that I put a 6pin power cable in a 4pin slot and I did not get any 4+4pin in my psu box.

    Pl don't mix it up. Use EPS 4 pin or 8 pin power cable for your cpu power header and use PCIe for graphics card. As this is the modular PSU, check for labels on cable heads. For CPU cables, they'll be labeled CPU and for graphics card cables, they'll be labeled as PCI. Use proper cable for proper connection.
  10. Just bought a 8-Pin to 4+4-Pin 12V EPS Extension Cable.Hopefully it will solve the issue.
  11. Check and post.
  12. Wow im stupid.I was fiddling with a 8 pin cable in my hand while on Netflix and the 8 pin slid into two 4 pins. Plugged it into my motherboard and now my new rig works like a charm.
  13. Glad to know your problem is resolved. Good Luck
