PC Suddenly Can't Run Dual Channel Anymore

 Share

I built this PC just over a year ago and the first 6 months was fine, then it wouldn't boot into windows one day. EZ Debug LED on motherboard was on indicating a DRAM issue. After much trouble shooting it seems dual channel just wouldn't work. Both sticks worked fine alone and in any of the 4 slots. This was with the Vengeance LPX 2x8gb 3200. I got a pair of Patriot Memory Viper 4 Series DDR4 2x4GB 3000MHz as test and they worked fine as dual channel for the 6ish months I used them. Then about 3 weeks ago I bought the Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 2x8gb 3200mz sticks. They seemed fine for the first 2 weeks then suddenly the same issue. Dual Channel refuses to work and both sticks work fine independently in all 4 RAM slots. (idk if this is important but I did also install a SK hynix 1tb M.2 SSD at the same time as the  Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 2x8gb 3200mz.)  Please help ❤️

Will it work with both sticks if you turn off XMP (or whatever equivalent is on) i.e. run it at the base JEDEC standard? Just reset BIOS/CMOS and see if it'll run without any modifications to memory settings.

check the max ram speeds supported for your mobo, turn off XMP and input manually the hz, given the correct max supported value.

Turn off docp and test if it works. Make sure sticks is placed in slot A2 and B2. If it works. Set frequency, dram voltage (1.35v) and primary timings manually. If still doesn't work. Download Aida64 go to motherboard -> SPD. Write down timings/take photo. Remember to extend the page so you can see the names of all the timings. Go to BIOS and input all timings.

Both sticks and it doesn’t even boot. Fans turns on but peripherals don’t. EZDug says DRAM issue.
