Alright guys I'm having a hard time with my brand new motherboard and here's the problem :



When I put my memory in the black slots ... no problem

When I put my memory in the blue slots I get the DRAM led as a solid red color.

Is this a problem serious enough to RMA the damn thing or is it me? Cause I'm pretty sure I can put my dual channel ram there even though I don't have another set to go along ...

Thank you!

Forgot to say that I have 1600 mhz memory, PATRIOT viper Xtreme 8gb dual channel

Yes, you should be able to use either the blue or the black slots. I would contact Asus and ask them what is going on... That is a strange problem.

When using a single pair of DIMMs they should be placed in the blue slots. It has to do with memory bus termination.

Did you use the MemOK! switch to force memory compatibility tuning when the DRAM_LED was continuously lit?

Did you use CPU-Z to verify that your DIMMs are running at 1600 MHz (DRAM Frequency 800.0 MHz)?

This is the most bizzare problem I've ever encountered in my life... I fixed to problem.

I started by doing some tests: While keeping the current on (not the PC)
Dual channel blue. RED LED => doesn't work
first I tested 1 dram in the left blue. Worked
1 dram in the right blue. Worked (wow strange means both slots work)
1 dram in black left. Worked
1 dram in black right. Worked
Dual channel black. Works
Dual channel blue.... WORKS

WTH????

Btw I trued to CMOS restart before so this didn't seem like a bios problem.

Ya! I did use the MEMok... didn't seem to work.

I think it did the compatibility with the black slots for some reason....

It works now, so if anyone else gets the same problem. Try using my technique, it should work afterwards ;) 

Thanks guys
