New built computer won't boot up

Hi sorry if I posted in the wrong area wasn't sure where to post this

I built my computer yesterday with these parts
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/buJA

it was working smooth for that day but today it just decided to shut off and keep rebooting itself without getting to the bios. I did manage to find the culprit which was one of my rams. so it boots just fine with one stick of ram all the way till windows then it gives me a different bsod's (memory_management, bad_pool_header were the most common) and safe mode wouldn't work either.

  1. First things first, BIOS update...
    Then ensure that your RAM is compatiable
  2. how do I do a bios update without being able to boot up to windows?

    edit: nvm, I updated the bios and it's still the same situation
  3. Best answer
    Alright, go to mobo manufacture website and see if the RAM is "Compatiable" or not.

    Damn, not compatible. I guess I gotta go buy one of those rams. Thanks for the help!

  6. Alright, but before you do that check and see if in the BIOS you can set the timing for the RAM. Sometimes you can just alter the timing of the RAM to match that of a different brand and it will work. You would also need to set the voltage and speed of RAM as well.
  7. What's a good set recommended settings for the timing and the voltage?
  8. I dont know, check the compatibility list find a stick that is really close, and just tweek yours to look as close to it as possible.


    Side note, this is another reason I dont like Intels... They dont have a onboard memory controller so this tends to happen a lot.

    Just tried 9-9-9-24 (which was the default settings for other compatible ram) and even upping the voltage to 1.6 still bsod and I even lowered the speed to 1600 and it still won't run with both sticks of ram :\
  10. 9-9-9-24 WONT WORK...

    a good rule of thumb is the first three numbers, when added together, should be less or equal to the fourth number.

    Try 9-9-9-27 or 8-8-8-24... @1333 mhz @1.65v
  11. Yep just checked it...
    http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=BLT2KIT4G3D1869DT1TX0
    It says 9-9-9-27 @ 1866 @1.5v

    I would just try 1600 or 1333


    And according to the motherboard memory list
    http://download.gigabyte.ru/memory/mb_memory_ga-z77-ds3h.pdf
    You should be looking to mimic Crucial 4GB BLE4G3D1869DE1TX0.16FMD


    And last but not least try this BIOS update
    http://download.gigabyte.ru/bios/mb_bios_ga-z77-ds3h_f6.exe
    It is the latest (as of 07/18/2012)

    I just tried 8-8-8-24 at 1333 and 1600 at 1.6v and 1.65v and it still bsod :\...

    and I updated to the latest bios as well.. so is it just bad ram or is something else still messed up?
  13. it says 9-9-9-27... you can NOT let the last number be less than 27


    So make it 9-9-9-27 @ 1600 @ 1.5v

    If you would just look at the memory's manufacture website you could see that is what it is made to be ran at. Now with that said, the motherboard says that this perticular stick of RAM is not "Compatiable". This does not mean it will not work, hell Ford says that aftermarket parts wont work on their vehicles but we all know that is not true. It simply means it has not been tested, and approved. It more than likely (75% chance) will work.

    Still giving me bsod :\
  15. But it still works with just 1 stick of RAM?

    It boots up with one stick and gives me bsod
    and it boots up for about 5 seconds then the cpu fan dies then reboots itself with both sticks of ram in


    edit:
    so I tried using both rams and moving them around a bit and now I think i figured out the problem,

    with ram stick A works perfectly fine, no bsod
    with ram stick B it runs to bios menu and when windows load it gives me a bsod

    and it doesn't work all with both :\
  17. If you take both sticks out will it stay on and just give you beep codes?

    The phantom 410 doesn't come with a internal speaker wire :\
  19. Well... Alright how about a "MEM OK!" switch?

    I'm sorry but I looked on google and my manual, but I have no idea what or where "MEM OK!" switch is :\
  21. Its a small switch on the motherboard that will bypass any memory testing and stuff and "Force" your memory to work, its a risky move sometimes, and not all motherboards have one, but it seems like your last option before a return.

    I don't see a memok switch :|
  23. Well it looks like its time for a return.
