    Memory compatibility for DH67CF

    dave_p

      Hi, I'm building a DH67CF-based system with an i5 2400S processor.

       

      I'm trying to use a Crucial 8GB kit which they swear is 'compatible' - it's 2 x 4GB DDR3, 1333 MHz (PC3 10600), product number CT2KIT51264BA1339.  Each DIMM works on its own, but if I try and populate both slots, the system won't do much of anything: fans spin but no beeps and no video output (the monitor remains in sleep state).

       

      Each DIMM is physically double-sided, 8 chips/side. I don't really understand the x8 or x16 notation that the motherboard manual talks of - specificially when it says 'double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported'.

       

      Should these DIMMs work?  Does anyone here have experience with them?

       

      Alternatively, could someone give me product details of an 8GB kit that is known by personal experience to work with the DH67CF?

       

      Thanks.

       

      P.S., I upgraded to the v119 BIOS, no change.
