P5Q Deluxe and E8500 Tags: Asus Configuration Motherboards Last response: March 5, 2009 6:36 AM in Motherboards Share tromi March 3, 2009 5:47:59 AM Hello, I have a configuration that does not boot at all. As per the documentation I have it should be supported, but probably I'm wrong. Here the configuration: Motherboard: ASUS P5Q Deluxe CPU: E8500 DIMMs: 2 x Kingston (512 MB DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM) Video: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 (256 MB) PCI-E I use standard PSU up to 400 Watts ATX that came with my Chieftec case. After putting the configuration together, the system would power up but without video and POST. I have cleared the NVRAM, but without success. Thanks in advance for any help!

No DDR2-533 are supported by this motherboard officially. Can this be the cause for this behaviour? As far as I am aware it might not perform at its best, but it should at least boot.
