I am building a machine for a friend, and he has just dumped all the parts on my lap and asked me to take it from there. I have everything up and running, but I cannot seem to get it to recognize the memory... http://www.ocztechnology.com/products/desktop-memory/dd... But I cannot get the board to read the chips. I poured through the manual, and it is definitely the ram according to the beeping that it kicks up when I switch it on... I checked the manual, and the website for compatibility and both don't have any mention of these chips anywhere. Will the MemOK! switch be able to configure these chips, or do I need to tell my buddy that he blew $100 on ram chips that won't work in his machine?
Sounds like the RAM does not want to work on the unit. i would be straight with your buddy. Better tell him to return his RAM and get a new set. I heard the Corsair Dominator series works well with the i7 CPU and motherboards.
