    Default DIMM Slot vs. Enabled Slot memory - UD3R

    Hi everyone,

    I recently upgraded my computer to the one in my signature here, and I've run into an issue with the memory I'm trying to use. I have 3 4gig sticks of Patriot Sector 7, and the computer is only using one of them. However, when I go into the M.I.T section, it see's the memory in the slots, they are just not enabled.

    I've tried reseating them, no affect. I have manually set my QPI Voltage at 1.3 and my VDIMM at 1.66, as they were auto-setting much lower than that. The RAM is currently set to 1600 by use of the XMP Profile 1, if I don't enable that it gets set to 1066, but this has no affect on the amount of RAM that is usable in the computer.

    I also get the 'Recovering Lost DRAM Size' error when I start up the computer, although after I adjusted the voltages manually that has gone away for now.

    I have an older set of 3x2GB Corsair sticks that I have also tried, same issue. 3 shown in MIT, only one enabled, and Recovering error regularly. Occasionally can get into windows, past the error, but clearly something is wrong.

    Picture shows Corsair memory in machine. Looks the same for the Patriot, just swap the sizes and timings slightly.

    I'm attaching a photo of my CPU socket and the pins. I couldn't find anything to compare it to, but it looks ok to me, as long as that weird clump in the middle there is intentional - I'm assuming it is, but if someone has one that could check for me I would appreciate it.


    Tempted to exchange the board where I purchased it anyways, since I think that's the problem. Having tried two different sets of RAM in it, hard to believe that both of them are bad - one is brand new.

    Cant tell for sure but the near the inner upper right corner there are a few pins that look bent.
    Can you take the image from different angle?

    The more I looked at it, the more I thought those were bent. I have already exchanged that board for a new one, opened in the store and has no bent pins or other issues.

    Rebuilding now, hopefully this one won't have the same memory issues as the other one did!

    Bent pins or not 1.3v qpi/vtt voltage won't be enough for 12gb,you need to test with atleast 1.35-1.4v with 12gb,not enough qpi/vtt voltage will cause you to lose memory/slots

    WOW, I see about 20+ bent pins, luckily you were able to exchange that!
