I use G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBX
(Didn't know which party you might have needed so i just copied all of it)
Just built PC computer, don't have a HD screen yet but I booted the computer and got the three beeping error.
Motherboard is DP67BG
Should i buy the HD screen and see if a BIOS screen shows up? Is my Ram possibly defective?
theres also a LED Code that reads 27, which means Configuring Memory.
But still, the three beep code still goes on, i've tried switching slots and everything.
Well, I think I tried all the slots, and I don't know if the cards are defective, both of them just wont work. I don't know if it's a certain PCI slot that doesn't work, but still I'm sttarting to get worried....
I'm really hoping the motherboard isn't defective. That's like, 200$ out the window
If you have tried each stick in each slot , one at a time and get the same result , do you have any other ram , it's starting to sound like the board , but before I would send back the board I would buy some known good ram that is on the Intel approved list . What CPU are you using.
uhhh.... people are kind of telling me you're wrong....
No, absolutely not, lol. i5 CPU can support up to 32gb of DDR3 Ram, speed support is handled by the motherboard. Most 1155 motherboards support up to 2133mhz nowadays. Some are limited to 1866, others go past 2400.. Actually DDR3-1600 is the basic standard for i5 today.
Base on DP67BG's compatible memory http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dp67bg/sb/CS-031957.htm
One of the requirement is 1.35 V DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs (New JEDEC Specification), but your memory which F3-12800CL9D-8GBX is 1.5v.
Need to troubleshoot system with memory voltage is 1.35v first.
Sorry. That's not an accurate intepretation of the memory spec. The DP67BG motherboard supports, NOT REQUIRES, the new low voltage memory of 1.35v. That's an important distinction.
It will run memory as high as 1.65v (read further down the spec). The voltage of 1.5v for DDR3 memory is very common, within spec., and perfectly acceptable.
