I have a AMD 955 black, I have returned the mother board (gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H) and this processor! I still have not been able to get the duel channel to wor more that a few hours. Ready to pull hair!
Gskill 1333 x2
520w power supply( just swapped)
Will not post with memory in slots 1&2 or 3&4 unless the computer is cold. Then it will boot. This only lasts a few minutes. The screen goes to artifacts and will not boot again until I move memory to single Chanel. I have an and 945 that works just fine with this memory!
You would be right for most boards, but this one has 1&2 or 3&4. I have reviewed the manual many times trying to solve this issue. I have an AMD 945 processor that works just fine in the correct configuration. I know that this sounds like I have a memory controller issue on the processor. This this the second 955BE that i have tried. Both would
not work from the getgo!!
These ram sticks work fine with the AMD 945 processor on the same board! could ram work with one processor and not the other???
That is theoretically possible but highly unlikely. Maybe there is a problem with the 955. To be 100% you'd need another RAM sample so you can check if the 955 works in dual-channel at all.
If you can return the 955 to the seller and get a replacement, I'd consider doing so.
