Strange problem.

When i put the 4 x 4 gb corsair xms3 1333 fsb rams in the slot with phenom II 955 on the Gigabyte 880GM USb 3 board it works normal,but when ever i switch to a Phenom II x6 1090 T,the beep sound continues on Boot until n unless i remove the rams from the 2nd n 4th slot which then works flawlessly.Even if i put a single Ram on the 2nd n 4th slot,it doesn't works.Is this a compatibilty issue,but why and is there a possible solution?I tried upgrading biso to latest using @ bios.please help me techs.

  1. Have you tried to load Fail Safe Default settings, or Optimized Default settings in BIOS, after you made the change?
  2. how come i can do that im not able to boot it.4 beeps at start up
  3. tried flashing using USB then removed battery n replugged rams samething
  4. Can't you go into BIOS when you have the RAM modules only in 1st and 3rd slot?

    You should verify that the BIOS update went down successfully by looking at version number. Does it say it's the latest?


    Have you seen this on http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3809&dl=1#

    (Note 2) To reach DDR3 1800MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets.

    I'm not sure, how it's related to you, just thought I mention it.

    Now let's try to find out about that beep code.

    Q: What do the beeps emitted during the POST mean?
    A: The following Award BIOS beep code descriptions may help you identify possible computer problems.
    (For reference only.)
    1 short: System boots successfully
    2 short: CMOS setting error
    1 long, 1 short: Memory or motherboard error
    1 long, 2 short: Monitor or graphics card error
    1 long, 3 short: Keyboard error
    1 long, 9 short: BIOS ROM error
    Continuous long beeps: Graphics card not inserted properly

    Does it say anything to you?

  8. still none can solve this problem?
  9. Still no one here to solve this problem??
  10. motherboard- ASUS M4A88T-M
    procy-AMD phenom II x6 1090 BE
    PSU-corsair 600 GS
    Ram-Corsair xms 3 4gb 1333 fsb

    with default bios settings,some cpuz screens





    please sort out this problem :(
  11. is it a faulty procy?but it works so smooth n No BSOD or error when im on 8 GB (1st n 3rd slot)
  12. your cpu cores seem way underclocked at 803 MHz somethings wrong...have you downclocked it to that level? coz thats a 3.2 GHz chip...
  13. Cpu is Ok .Used prime95 it clocks to 3200 mhz at load.

    I asked that because I did not know cool & quiet would throttle down the cpu to 800 MHz. your NB and HT frequencies seem okay. I am still searching for clues will get back to you soon as I find something..keep us posted
  15. could this have something to do with the "Ganged" mode option? Enter BIOS and press Ctrl+F1 and then enter "MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)\ DRAM Configuration", to set the “DCTs Mode” as “Ganged”. The phenoms have two memory controllers for each channel and using all four DIMMS in dual channel requires the ganged mode option to be enabled.

    try and lets see
    Edit> I never realized that you changed mobo from Gigabyte to Asus, The above suggestion is for the Gigabyte one
  16. did that no help.any way sending the procy to AMD for RMA.
    Would this motherboard support AMD x6 1100 T BE.
    MSI 970A-G46
    Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
    ASUS M5A88-M
  17. do you have a specific mobo budget in mind? because you should go for a 990 chipset ideally
    This may be a better choice:
