Issue using all 4 DIMMs at the same time with my new 3900x and x570 Strix E

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just finished upgrading from my 6600k and MSI Krait Gaming 3x to a 3900x and Strix E x570. 

 

The installation hasnt gone very well. First I had the issue where no signal came through, and now I have issues with my RAM.

 

When I put 2 ram sticks (2 times 4gb) in their respective dual channel slots, the pc will boot up fine. But the moment I put in a third or additional fourth stick, nothing happens.

 

The motherboard light will be constant orange, which points to an DRAM issue.

 

However the ram stick is fine. I tested all 4 sticks separate. I also updated to BIOS and never had issues on my 6600k.

 

Am I missing something or is this ram not compatible or something? If it isn't compatible, then why does it work in dual channel.

 

The RAM I use is: HX426C15FBK2/8

I have 4 sticks totaling 16GB.

Have u checked out the compatibility list between the board and the ram from the manufacturer?

 

Its always best noting this... I bought ram which is on the list of mine being fully compatible and i run 4x8GB totaling 32GB with no issue.

 

So what i'm suggesting is it could be a compatibility issue.

The list shows the HX426C15FBK2/16 as compatible. This is basically the same ram, but it's sold as a 2x 8gb kit instead of the 2x 4gb kit I have.

 

If it was a compatibility issue, I would have the same issue with only 2 sticks in the board. Issue only happens when I add more.

Hey all, this morning I woke up and decided to try again. I put in the third RAM stick and the system actually booted! I put in the final RAM stick and it also booted. So basically the issue is resolved. 

 

Maybe I was tired last night as I did it late in the night, but from what I remember I did the exact same thing now as I did yesterday. 

 

Oh well, I'm very happy with my upgrade now!
