I recently bought a combo special on Newegg that included the Asus Sabertooth Z77, 8GB of G.Skill Ares 1600 RAM and an i7-3770K processor.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131821http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820231546http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819116501
When I try to start up with the RAM in slots A2 B2 as the manual recommends the computer won't boot and a solid red LED is lit by the memory reset button. So, I then tried holding the button to test other configs and it still doesn't boot.
Next I removed the stick in B2 and it started right up. Just to test, I swapped the sticks and as long as there is only 1 stick of memory in A2, it will boot, both sticks appear to work on their own, just not together. After I got it to boot again I updated the BIOS and tried again, but it still didn't work with both A2 and B2 populated, same goes for populating A1 B1.
Does anyone have any thoughts on if this is a memory incompatibility, bad memory, bad motherboard or something else? I'm hoping, worst case scenario it's the memory or an incompatibility so I have to dismantle this thing again completely.
Any thoughts? Thanks for the help.
