Ram issue

 Share

So just built my PC,

I have 2x8gb of corsair Ram 2400mhz.

When running the ram in  #1 and #3 or #2 and #4 and any other combos, It will boot past the bios then becomes stuck on windows, the loader doesnt spin.

 

I have tried one ram stick in all slots, works fine. Also did the same for the other does work fine.

 

Mobo: Msi X370 Carbon edition.

Were the ram sticks purchased together? I've heard of some sticks that weren't in the same package not working well together.... Just a thought.

Seems like the IMC is having issues booting in dual channel, since this is a newly built system, have you tighted up the CPU cooler too much? excessive pressure can affect such specific things within the CPU.

 

Either ways another known issue here is that first generation ryzen chipset boards from MSi were a fiasco regarding memory support, like ryzen had poor memory controller already but MSi went beyond developing such junk chipset bios that it was a meme in here, therefore you should probably update the motherboard BIOS to the latest version and give it a go.

I've updated the bios to the latest from this month, I've taken cpu cooler off and placed it on top without tightening it up fully and still no change

Hmmmm. See if you have a friend with some RAM (DDR4 I presume?) laying around. See if those solve your issue, if not, file a warranty claim for the motherboard. If it DOES fix, file a warranty claim for the RAM.

 

Edit: Also pull your CPU off the socket and take a look at the pins. See if any are bent. They should all look uniform and in a pattern. Bent ones stick out like a bruised eye.

Could a faulty psu cause the ram issue?

Doubtful, but possible if you have a dead output from one rail. It would be a 3.3v supply if I'm correct.

 

I wouldn't look too deeply into that just because it would be SUPER rare.
