    3 beeps DH67CF Low Voltage Ram

    Shawarma

      First time system builder here-

      I assembled my new mini itx htpc with a Core I3 2100t cpu, DH67CF mother board and G.Skill Eco low voltage ram(2*2 at 1.35v)

       

      On power up I get three beeps, a pause, then shutdown- which I've learned points to the memory

       

      I've swapped the memory sticks and also tried them individualy in both slots.

       

      New egg says about the ram- "Designed Specifically for Socket LGA 1156 Intel Core i5 & i7 CPUs"

       

      G.Skill tech support says the H67 board does not support sub 1.5v memory

       

      The box the board came in says it supports 1.2 - 1.8 volt memory

       

      Intel tech support says that only the processor specs matter and that none of the Sandy Bridge chips support low voltage ram.

       

      I've come across blogs that say the H67 and the eco sticks are or should be compatible.

       

      Are the cpu, mother board and ram compatable and if so, assuming at least one of the sticks are good, why won't it post?

       

      Thanks
