Hi! i just built a new computer and am getting some strange behavior from the motherboard at boot.
here's the basic story i got the dx79sr with a 3930k processor and 32gb of crucial ballistix tactial ram that was designed to run at 1600mhz with a timing of 8-8-8-24 and by the way just so you know the exact memory i got, its model BLT4K4G3D1608ET3LX0 and i got it off newegg, the address is:
okay, what that link says.
anyway, i installed all the memory and got a boot beep code memory error. so i took all but the stick in slot 1 out and the computer boots just fine plus i went stick by stick and installed each one in slot 1 and all booted up just fine so what i'm wondering is, are the other channels bad or did i get the wrong ram? any insight would be greatly appreciated
thanks for your time, y
The memory controller on the 3930k does not support 1.35V rated memory. Please check the datasheets for the processor page# 11 at the following website:
We recommend using DDR3-1066/1333/1600MHz rated at 1.5V to ensure proper performance.
