Hello, I just picked up this motherboard, and my Phenom 9850BE worked fine with 2 sticks of Corsair Dominator memory in it. I upgraded the processor to an AMD Phenom II x4 965, and attempting to upgrade to 8g of the dominator.

My issue is this. I cannot start with 2 sticks of the ram in, when I try with 2 sticks, it don't even post. With 1 stick it's fine.

I updated the timing and voltage settings to 5-5-5-15 and 2.10 accordingly, and I'm at a loss for what to do next.

Any help?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardaware forum.

Update the BIOS of your mobo.

It was already updated to 2708, forgot to mention that.

And thanks, I've been coming here forever, but this is the first time I had to ask a question!
