Asus P5Q3 doesn't boot with this RAM

September 24, 2012 12:48:02 PM

Recently bought 2x4GB A-DATA 1333 RAM (AD3U1333C4G9-2) which just doesn't do anything installed on the motherboard. Not a beep or any signal coming out. No boot of any kind ...

The system works fine with 2x1GB 1600mhz 5-year-old Corrsair.

I know that this MB(Asus p5Q3 Deluxe) is highly incompatible with different RAM, but is there anything I can do to get it to work?

So far I tried different manual timing settings, different DRAM and north bridge voltages. I actually tried so different combinations that I couldn't keep track of them.

P.S The A-DATA RAM tested on other PC and it works. Also tried on both DIMM sockets. I've also cleared the CMOS couple of times and have the latest BIOS.

I read a lot of threads similar, but not exact, to this issue. So far nothing has worked. I would very much appreciate any ideas.
thanks :)
