I was upgrading my one computer with the above listing and was having one heck of a time getting it to boot up properly. A few times I was able to get it up and into the bios and everything looked fine. It saw all the memory and everything.
After taking out and changing the hardware configuration enough times and resetting the cmos.. I was able to get it to boot a few times. But that was a lot of work. It threw a few "1394 GUID Invalid" a few times but it wasnt consistent. It wasnt very predicable either.
I RMA'd the board back to newegg thinking it was the board.
I dont have a way of testing the ram as thats my only DDR3 board.
The graphics cards and processor work fine.
Does any one have any thoughts on this? I've never had any problem with memory before and I know people run nv cards in their amd chipset boards...
There was no difference in booting. I tried with just 1 stick in, i tried with just 2 sticks in. I tried putting the sticks in difference places and occasionally couples with changing the graphics card and resetting the cmos, I would get it to boot up and be able to access the bios.
The 7-segment displays would sit at 20, 2A and 38 often. The screen would display the GUID error and 0033 from time to time. It wasn't predictable though.
When the system did boot to the bios, it did see all 6GB of ram and operated normally.
The boards being RMA'd to newegg as of right now. Hopefully that was at fault and not the RAM as I dont have any way of testing the DDR3 stuff.
It is unlikely that all the sticks were bad (since no difference with one stick) so you are more than likely on track with the board. In any case it is a good idea to test the ram with memtest when you get the board back http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
