Question about Sandy Bridge,p67 chipset and Memory.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok eariler this year i have an i5 2320 from a system thrown out by a neighbor,i bought on craigslist a asus p67 board from some guy.

 

Well i was having 2 problems,one was weird RAM problems,i had 4x 4gb sticks,2 of which i knew were good,but the rams was picky about which slot i put it in,and if i had 1,2 or 3 sticks it would say say i only had 4gb of ram yet the SPD info would see of the sticks,if i had 4 sticks it would show as 8GB.

the other problem was only 1 HDD drive been seen,and thinking back now that may have been a bad SATA cable,either than or the bad sata port problems those boards had.

 

I was recently thinking,isn't the memory controller on the CPU with sandy bridge and newer? Could the CPU of been the problem?

99.9% of the time it's a problem with your motherboard, maybe the ram, but most likely a board.

I know 2 of the stick were good,and just running them,still had the weird problem.

i say check the mobo for bent pins

 

because your memory are controlled by the CPU

 

if any of the pins are not touching

 

certain RAM slots dont work

I have the board right next to me,there are no bent pins.

 

P.S. I traded away the CPU when i thought it was the board. so i can't do any testing.

that way you can test if it mobo or CPU
