Thread: x-58 extreme maximum memory capacity is 6 gb?!




  1. #1

    Default x-58 extreme maximum memory capacity is 6 gb?!

    Hello,

    I just upgraded to 12 gb from 6 gb,
    but there are some problems, please help me to clear this situation:

    All system information programs says that maximum installable memory is 6 kb, which is false I think.

    But after installing all memory sticks, bios says that it is only 8 gb in the computer.
    Windows too.
    But everst, sandra, siw etc says that all slots (6) are filled with 2 gb ram, so it's ok. But total memory is 8100.

    Latest f9a beta bios and x64 windows 7. (7100 free)

    Please help me on this.

    Regards,
    Pubem

    Do you see N/A listed on any of the channels in the MIT Page of the BIOS? If you do then you may need to adjust your QPI/Vtt and or Dram voltages.

    Are you SURE you do not have ANY bent CPU Socket pins?

    Hi,

    Finally I realized that memory can't reach speed of it's specification.
    If I go over 1600, than amount of memory is 8gb.
    But setting 1600 or below, on next restart (even without turning off the computer) the memory is 12 gb.

    Now I just tested 1 stick of 2gb ram, and on 1866 it is failed by memtest and lynx.
    I will check some other stick, but I really don't know whats happening.
    Ocz 1600 intel extreme was on 1850 without problem. I awaited from this 1860-70, but the situation is worse.

    I will test other stick, but I think all will be the same.

    For one stick 1.34 qpi is more than enough. I was on 1.28 with 6 gb.

    No, all stick same, works but not on factory default, only lower.

    Now I'm trying GEIL, reached 1870 without problem.
    The problem is that from 2x(3x2gb) kit one stick is dead from geil :-(
    No luck on memory upgrade...
    Argh.

    Working lower than stock means the memory is faulty, I would RMA it if I were you.

    May I suggest Crucial or Mushkin to you? They work just fine

    Yes, but I not checked it in other mobo, to be sure about it.

    In my country crucial and mushkin are not avaible.
    Even no alternative for replacement right now.
    Geil 1600 only in the store with cl7.

    It is time to decide something, but really don't know, what can I do.

    Thanks for your help anyway,

    I thought if your populating all 6 slots the max the cpu controller can run 12 gigs is at 1333

    Hello Buddha,

    I don't know, maybe can't reach 1866 with 12 gb,
    but would be great to TRY it with pair of working 6 gb kit at least :-(
