Need help with new system

Hello,
I have just put new system together
MB- M4A87TD/USB3

ram- Patriot viper extreme pc3 16000 2000 Mhz 3x4 +12 gig

cpu- amd Phenom ii x4 black edition 3.4 Hz

The system will boot after a long time but the ram light on MB will go on and off with 2 sticks of ram in but won't boot with all 3 sticks in.

also noted during slow boot the errors of - EC flash corupt and over voltage

any ideas what the problem can be

  1. Is this your RAM?

    Go in the BIOS and manually change the memory voltage to 1.65V.

    If it doesn't work try with one stick of RAM at a time. If all work, add another one, try with each one at a time. Maybe one stick is bad.

    yes that is the ram I have

    Thanks for the reply mosox....I set the voltage to 1.65v and it seems to work ok...except only with 2 sticks of ram in I believe the third stick is bad,I tried it by itself and in combo with the other 2 sticks and that would stop the system from booting up. However it works fine with 2 of the 3 sticks.I'm doing a memtest with linux live cd and it shows the ram at 568 Mhz

    Thanks alot for your time and help

    Send it back (the whole kit) and we'll recommend you some cheaper better RAM if you provide a link to your HW shop. Off Newegg:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231405

    The latencies matter (the lower the better) not the clock frequency.

    LE: Also 1.5V RAM is the best.
