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.
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

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
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
