    Post asrock G41C-GS MOBO

    I bought a new ASRock G41C-GS mobo. and bought some ram...Kingston Value RAM 4GB 1333MHz PC3-10600 DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM SR x8 Desktop Memory (KVR13N9S8/4) only to find out that single sided sticks are compatible. so i bought some Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 1333MHz DDR3 CL9 DIMM - Blue (HX313C9FK2/8) only to find out that it does not have compatible DDR3 1333 4g ram and i would need to drop down to DDR3 1066. i remember seeing G.SKILL ram listed, when i came across this review on newegg


    This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL

    Pros:

    Popped in my ASRock G41C-GS LGA775 mobo, set the jumper for DDR3 and it was up and running at advertised speeds. Overclocks well, I have these running at 1250Mhz (from the stock 1066Mhz) @ only 1.65v. I'd push them even more if my board had VID control (CPU Voltage) but that's on another review of the mobo mentioned.

    Cons:

    It never, not even once, got up early to make me coffee.

    :'o(


    Other Thoughts:

    My core 2 quad Q6600 only has DDR3 1066 max memory controller so this RAM is great for what I have and for the $ you can't go wrong. Like I said it overclocks well and the heat spreaders make sure they run cool when there's proper case air flow.


    Needless to say i bought G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL and installed it, set the fsb1 over to pin 2-3 turned on computer, saw all the fans kick on, saw a couple of flashes from the hdd light and that was it. i checked the ram to make sure it seated right stiil the same. i reinstalled the mem and nothing but fans came on, even tried installing just 1 stick still nothing. so i reinstalled the DDR2. now im seeing that G.Skill ships out bad sticks all the time. So my question is how do i know if i have bad mem or a bad mobo or i did something wrong? in the attachment is my system info

    i thank you for listening and for any help

    Not sure where you saw that (only?) single sided memory is compatible, the following is from the memory specifications of this board:

    In order to maximize the system memory, please install two dual sided 4GB memory modules.

    ASRock > G41C-GS

    The information in the manual about this jumper is:

    asrock G41C-GS MOBO-g41-fsb-png

    If the jumper needs to be moved, "... if you adopt FSB1333-CPU and DDR3 1333 memory module...", why would it need to be moved for 1066 memory?

    as to "why would it need to be moved for 1066 memory?"......
    This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL
    G41C-GS 2x4GB RAM compatible DDR3

    and from what i been reading, i'm not the only one that's confused on this problem and hoping that ASRock will answer us and maybe update their G41C-GS QVL as well as the wording in the manual as well
    and to parsec, I'm not the best with words so i want all to know i do appreciate everyone's help in case i sound wrong :)
