You are going to use memory that cost 3 times as much as your motherboard. This doesn't make much sense. If you are using an AM3 CPU this memory should work

I wanted to check what ram I had and I opted to do it manually. After taking out and examining one I reseated it and booted up my PC. I checked my system settings and found RAM was at 4gb and not 8gb. I tried to reseat the ram again and I got the same results. I then tried swapping the two rams into each others slots. This time none of them worked and the PC won't turn on. The motherboard is still lit and when I try turning on my PC it plays three beeps that become shorter. E.g - BEEEEP BEEEP BEEP.
Does anyone know what's wrong with it? I have tried resetting the CMOS by removing the motherboard battery for 10-15 minutes but I've had no luck.

I guess I bought corsair vengeance (pc12800, ddr3) ram because it was at the top of
asus's verified list for my asus p8z68 v pro / gen3 motherboard. 1600 fsb

I have seen several people place links for the best cpu coolers for socket 1155.

but every one of them seems to have clearance issues with ram sticks that have heat spreaders on them.
right now I'm only running 2 sticks (2x4gb) , but in the future would like to upgrade to
4 sticks for 16gb total ram

is anybody had any luck installing a tower style cpu cooler with vengeance ram sticks????

still running the Intel stock cooler.

and if i have any problems the Memok! should fix it right?

A:CORSAIR Vengeance 4gb Sticks...

OK, you are buying ram NOT on the qvl list and you ask if it will work??? No one can give you an answer. Ram on the qvl list has been tested and found to work. If it is not on the list, you are a beta tester; it may work fine and it may not.

After aquiring a cooler master hyper plus I found that even it was too big to fit along with corsair vengeance high profile ram This leads me to have to mount it so that the fan which is trying to suck in air is facing the exhaust fan at the back rather than the intake fans at the front If I removed the heatsync of ram dimm there should be room to have it facing the intake fans much more ideal but will this a void the warrantee and b be bad for the ram cause it to overheat I know the heatsyncs on vengeance ram are rather excessive if you aren't overclock ing but I just wanted vengeance necessary? Corsair heat syncs really to check Also I have dimms so I can't move them over or anything incase someone was going to suggest that I could just remove the pair with the dimm closest to the cooler but I would rather keep all in use Thanks

A:Corsair vengeance heat syncs really necessary?

Yes removing heatsinks will void the warranty but, no I don't think they are really needed either. I've put my machine through hell and never noticed the RAM getting more than warm to the touch.

Hell all!

I just finished building my new CPU and am running into some issues... this one is regarding my evident trouble with Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x 4gb) RAM and my Asus M4A89GTD PRO MOBO.

Upon system startup if I let it go itself it freezes very wuickly, before Windows can even load. Each time i start up I have to hit my MemOK! function on the MOBO and it will load without issue, thus why I am here now.

So obviously the RAM works and works well with the CPU build but I am trying to find a way to get it to load correctly without having to leave my case open to hit the MemOK! function. Ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,
Recently I made a post on the BSOD subforum in regards to recent BSODs I've been having.
After investigation, it seems that it was my Corsair Vengeance 1500 headset drivers. I've since uninstalled the drivers and I've experience no more problems. I hope they make drivers that work for windows 8 properly.

HOWEVER, the problem is that now with the basic windows drivers, the volume is way too loud! Before, with the Corsair drivers, I could listen to something at 50% volume and it would sound fine. Now, 2% volume is equivalent to that 50% volume I heard before. I hope that makes sense.

My question is that if there is any way for me to change the volume/driver settings so I could have more normalized audio? Anything past 10% blows my ears out and it's really annoying for obvious reasons.

Thanks in advance!

A:Corsair Vengeance 1500 Audio Too Loud

No "My System Specs". We have no idea what sound you have and can't specifically comment to help you.

However, one general issue. You should have the correct sound driver (preferred driver is the one supplied by the PC vendor (or motherboard vendor in the case of a custom built). If you only have the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec, the proper driver is the first step.

Hey Guys, I recently joined these forums due to a error BSOD which I received great help with, thing is running MemtestCL, Memtest86+ and Windows Memory Diagnostics, I kept getting "Hardware Problem Detected".

So one by one I tried the Modules in all 4 DIMM Slots and 2 sticks together A1,A2,B1,B2 slots but returned Errors, tried this on all 4, and found one Module was causing the error message.

I tried the remaining 3 Modules in all the slots with no error at all, my question is, does this sound like a problem with the Module itself? Or the Motherboard??

A:Bad Module or Bad DIMM Slot? Corsair Vengeance 16GB

Module. If all the other sticks worked in every slot, its the ram. Were it the mobo slot, known good sticks would test bad in the mis-behaving mobo slot.

I recently purchased a pair of Corsair Vengeance 1500s, and immediately found some problems with the headset. First, they do not automatically disable my speakers when plugged in, causing no audio to play through the headset, unless I manually disable the speakers. The headset is set as my default playback device. Secondly, a high pitched whine can be heard when the microphone is in use. I have searched online for answers to both of these issues, and have found no solutions. I would appreciate if anyone could provide some insight on the causes, or any possible fixes to these problems.

Two considerations come to mind, first what motherboard make and model do you have and secondly have you looked at that boards site for a QVL for RAM ?
Qualified Vendor Lists give you all the info for memory that is certified to work, it doesn't mean other makes wont, but there's no warranty.
Also Corsair have a pretty good tech. sheet for each module they sell, giving exact instructions on how to ensure your board and CPU will work with the Ram.

A:Corsair memory

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

If your computer is an oem build. I.E Dell/Gateway/HP etc. Go to your computer manufacturers website, and check to see what ram is compatible.

If your computer is a non oem build. Download the free Everest programme from HERE. It will give you lot`s of info about your system, including what mobo you have.

Then, go to your mobo manufacturers website, and check for what types/makes of ram are compatible.

It`s a good idea to make sure that whatever ram you get, that both sticks are exactly the same. Mixing different speeds/makes of ram isn`t really a good idea.

I have a computer that has two 1 gig sticks of CM2X1024-6400C4 XMS2 DDR2 duel channel memory that run great. This is all set to Auto detect so I just plugged them in and they posted. I decided to go out and buy the same two sticks so I can upgrade to vista with 4 gigs of Ram. I installed the two sticks I just got today and it did not post but gave me a long beep and I had to shut it down with the power button . I then removed 1 of the sticks and it booted up no problem and reads 3 gigs. What could be the problem? I want this system to hold the 4 gigs. I'm using Windows XP now and plan on switching to Vista 64bit tonight. Do I have to set my own timings instead of relying on autodetect? Please Help.

3 DB is a common read with WXP on that board. You may find that VISTA will read all four gigabytes. There is more explanation on the ASUS site.

A:Solved: corsair memory

I would assume that you MAY be able to run DDR2-6400, the socket is the same. DDR2 was designed to be backward compatible; but,not all memory that you buy is the same.

PC6400 may requires more voltage than your motherboard supplies, and doing just a bit of research hasn't yielded me info on what the ram you are referring to requires for voltage. If the Corsair sticks you are referring to can use 1.8 volts, they will work most likely, but keep in mind that your mobo will run slower than the PC-6400 speed....

Your computer's data bus speed is 533MHZ; the PC-6400 runs at 800MHZ.

* If you can get a good deal on it, PC-4200 would be the best bet compatibility wise*

What will be the better brand to buy if you had to choose between these two.

Corsair or Kingston HyperX T1

HX3X12G1600C9 1600MHz 9-9-9-24-2T 1.6v 12GB (6x2GB)
It says here the clock speed is PC3-12800 (Haven't got a clue what this means)

Would like 12GB of memory for video editing.

Instead of starting another thread because there is something else I'm confused about. Is there much difference between CL7 and CL9 and will you notice the difference?

A:Memory - Corsair or Kingston

Personally, I've always preferred the Kingston brand over Corsair in general. Although others who've had more experience with both may chirp in with a more thorough rationale.

CL7/CL9 are latency measures, but I couldn't tell you if it's much of a noticeable difference. Since I assume you'll be doing heavy video editing rather than plain old web browsing, it'll be more likely to be a noticeable difference, and of course CL7 is the better choice (at least on paper).

By the way, PC3-12800 is just an alternative unit of measure for the RAM speed. 1600 MHz = PC3-12800. Here's a link to a decent article if you want to understand how RAM speeds work.

This new world record, verified and validated by CPU-Z, the industry-standard tool for verifying overclocking results, is the first time this frequency has been achieved on a Core i7 system with 6GB of memory using three modules; most world record attempts use only a single 1GB module. Corsair Labs engineers used the award-winning Dominator GT 2000C7 memory with eVGA's X58 3X SLI Classified motherboard to shatter the world record for memory frequency.

Hey! I just bought Asus P6T mobo, with Core i7 920 and 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory. The problem is here, I was about to start to put the memory in their places but, I saw a warning sign, that tells me: According to Intel CPU SPEC, DIMMs with voltage may damage the CPU permanently. We recommend you install the DIMMs with the voltage setting belov 1.65V. I don't know what does this mean but could you tell me? And the voltage level thing in these memories is 1.8.

Thanks for your help. Fleshpound.

A:Asus P6T and Corsair DDR3 1600MHZ XMS3 DHS Memory

The voltage shown in the memory specs is the the reccomended maximum voltage to be used with the memory.
The actual memory voltage used is controlled by BIOS and motherboard settings and since ASUS is aware of the Intel limitations, it will be less than that.
The Intel warning is a cover-our-rearend statement. It just means the CPU is designed to run with this voltage or less and that if you "overclock" your system your warranty is void.

A:Memory Compatibility?

Kingston know what sort of RAM your computer takes:

I would suggest getting a matched pair of 1GB DDR2-667 sticks, doesn't have to be Kingston, as long as they're identical. DDR2-800 will probably work too. That will take your RAM up to 3GB. The g.skill kit you mention should work fine, "DDR2-800" just means that it's rated at up to 800, it will run fine at 667, 533 or 400 too.

Hello there

I have a PC with one 128 MB SDRAM PC100 DIMM ECC with 168pins. Now I want to add another 128 MB but it's hard to find the same memory, because mine is about two years old.

Could I also take memory that is 133 clocked? And what happens to the ECC (error correction?), when I add memory without ECC? Will it be deactivated? Will the system crash? Is the ECC important (maybe (?) my memory has errors all the time, but the ECC corrects it everytime or is the ECC not used anyway?)?

I'm very unsecure about this upgrade and I don't know what to do? Do you have a suggestion?


A:Memory compatibility

You are right to feel insecure as Memory upgrades can be a minefield for the unwary.

It wouldn't be a good idea to mix PC100 and PC133 memory in the same system. Even if the system will boot (which it might not) its likely to be unstable and will only run at the speed of the slowest RAM anyway.

If your existing RAM has ECC then putting in non-ECC RAM to another slot will almost certainly stop the system from starting up.

I have two DIMMS of Corsair Vengeance 4GB RAM (2 x 2GB) at 1600MHz, although whenever I try to turn it up to this speed Windows BSODs during boot so I left it at 1333MHz, however I would like to add a DIMM of KomputerBay 8GB 1600MHz to my system but I'm sure the timings are different; the Corsair has timings of 9-9-9-24, and the KomputerBay RAM has timings of 10-10-10-27. Will these run together in the same system? I have an Asus Z97 Pro Motherboard. Thanks in advance

I highly recommend NOT running unmatched ram.

Your system should be able to run this at the 1600 speed.

I'm looking into getting another stick of RAM for my laptop. (Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405.) It came with a 512 stick of DDR266 (PC2100) installed in it already. Toshiba's knowledge base is proving to be useless, so I'm approaching you guys for this one: Can I install a DDR333 (PC2700) module in this thing, or can I only use 266?

I understand that even if I did buy the faster 333 and it did work, my PC would not be able to utilize the extra speed. I'm mainly researching this because when this machine eventually goes, I'd like to be able to migrate this extra RAM to my new one.

I have a Linux machine running on a PIII running about 600MHz on a QDI Advance 9 MOBO. I had a stick of 64MB RAM, and a stick of 128MB RAM that worked OK. I recently got a stick of 256MB RAM to boost things a little, and now the 128 stick seems not to work. I have tried all the slot configurations, and no joy in seeing the 128MB. (If I take the 128MB stick out, it makes no difference.) They are all PC100, though not the same brand.

Any ideas anyone?

Hi there people I came here to clarify a couple of doubts I have about Ram copatibility that I am sure are very basic I bought a Gigabyte GA-Z X-UD H-B mobo and while checking the Memory QVL on their website I saw that they have not listed gb individual sticks of ram They provide the Module P N of x gb and x gb ram packages I have learn that the Module P N number GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Memory and compatibility has to be very respected to secure the compatibility but when I for example look for the x gb ram package specs on a different package x gb the Module P N changes slightly and it is not found on my mobo's QVL So that's one of my questions Is there a problem if I choose the x gb GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Memory and compatibility package even thought the serial number varies slightly I already bought a x gb ram package because I did not think that in order to take full advantage of ram slots capacity get to gb I have to use x gb sticks So now that I have x gb ram in my system is it possible to use the other empty slots and use a x gb package in order to have gb in my system of course making sure they are the same specs no conflicts if I do that Thanks a lot and please develop a little if you want and sorry for my strange english

A:GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Memory and compatibility

You might prefer to add new RAM in pairs to preserve the dual-channel memory function.

If you're not in the US, Canada, or the UK, you may not be able to directly do business with this vendor, but they have quite a variety of RAM that they guarantee to be compatible with your board:

If you mix RAM from different manufacturers, there may be compatibility issues. Those can sometimes be overcome by manually setting the memory timings in the BIOS (or EFI) setup to values that are compatible with both sets.

Hi there,

Can anyone give me advice on DDR memory compatibility with my ASUS P4P800S-X motherboard please?

I currently have 1 GB of PC2100 266mhz memory in my system but I want to upgrade. I can only afford a stick of 1GB Kingston DDR400 PC3200 serial number KVR400X64C3A/1G which (I hope) will work on its own in this mobo. I want to know if I could mix the 2 sorts of memory (DDR400 & 266Mhz) to give me 1.5 GB of memory. Next month i will buy another 1GB stick and replace the 512MB PC2100 so this is only a short -term problem.

Thanks for the advice.

Does the ASUS M5A88-V EVO motherboard memory platform (4DIMMS, 16gb total) support 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) modules? In other words... Will this board support the 8gb modules?

Hello everyone

I would like to ask if anybody here can tell me if my Kingston DDR2-667 SDRAM memory chips are compatible with Windows 7. I've searched for a Kingston support forum but couldn't find any.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Memory compatibility is more so a motherboard thing then an OS thing. You do not need to worry about it at all.

Hi there I was purpose? What listings motherboards? are for compatibility their Memory wondering if someone could clarify why motherboard manufacturers put out memory compatibility listings Im in a discussion with a work collegue who seems to think that these lists are non-exhaustive and they do not also display incompatible ram Ive explained to him that i believe these listings are designed to show a list of all ram that is tested by the MB manufacturer and is known and therefore guaranteed to be compatible with the board in general He disagrees Memory compatibility listings for motherboards? What are their purpose? and suggests otherwise - he thinks that memory of similar specification timings and voltage to those listed on the compatibility are guaranteed to work as they Memory compatibility listings for motherboards? What are their purpose? share the same characteristics - he suggests those lists serve no purpose when trying to match memory types and motherboards for compatibility and therefore cannot be relied upon in a situation where ram may not be compatible with the board in question If anyone can clarify exactly why motherboard manufacturers provide these lists - Memory compatibility listings for motherboards? What are their purpose? that would be great nbsp

A:Memory compatibility listings for motherboards? What are their purpose?

But you don't want to assume the various modules would work together, or at the same time. Those listings of compatibility may show they work in the same system, but may or may not show memory that works together..

I recently purchased am Asus Rampage III Extreme mobo for my first enthusiast build in several years, and I have some questions about which memory its compatible with.

On newegg, the specifications state that these frequencies will work: DDR3 2200(O.C.) / 2133(O.C.) / 2000(O.C.) / 1800(O.C.) / 1600 / 1333 / 1066.

Does that mean that I can put DDR2200 memory in that mobo, or that I can overclock DDR1600 up to 1800, 2000, 2133, or 2200?

Thanks for your help!

A:Asus Rampage III Extreme memory compatibility

The overclock RAM bandwidth is dependant upon overclocking the CPU for the most part since CPU and RAM frequency are linked by fixed divider ratio's. Overclocking RAM is usually a by-product of overclocking the CPU.
If you are looking to get the RAM to DDR3-1866+ speeds you should be looking for a faster kit. DDR3-1600 in general will not reach past 1900 for the most part*- if it did then it would be sold as a faster kit.
Buying a DDR3-2000 kit (for example) gives supposed headroom for overclocking, plus has the standard JEDEC RAM profiles embedded within it (DDR3-1066, -1333, -1600) for operating with a non-overclocked CPU. This range of utilisation (along with the higher speed bin) is why faster kits sell for a premium.

* This is assuming the RAM is not over-volted. While the Core i7/i5 CPU's have a maximum memory voltage of 1.875v ( Intel spec pdf Table 2-6, pg.22), I believe any CPU damage that occurs using a voltage over Intel's 1.65v recommendation is not covered by warranty.

Hey, guys I am a total computer noob, that's why I came with this question.
I am planning getting a corsair H80i, it has a sata power connector, the pic:

Beside that I have a Corsair CX750 modular PSU, the pic :

As you can see there is no way that the sata power connector of H80i can directly plugged into the PSU, so I want to know which additional cable I need to connect them together, some link to those webshop would be great thx in advance!!!

A:Corsair H80i and Corsair PSU

You do not need any additional cable it connects to one of the SATA power leads from the PSU. - which are themselves modular connections to the body of the PSU

Hi all,

A friend of mine is wanting to buy two memory modules off me that run at 2133MHz but his motherboard caps at 2000 Overclocked. If he installs this RAM will it just cap at 2000, will he have to clock it right or will it simply be incompatible?

The memory: Patriot Viper 2x4GB 2133MHz (PV38G213C1K)
His board: Gigabyte-970A-DS3

Cheers for reading over this peeps, if you need any other info ask away.

A:Solved: Patriot Viper Memory & Gigabyte-970A-DS3 Compatibility?

It may BSOD and not be able to boot until it is manually under-clocked, or it may automatically jump down to a speed which the board is compatible with.

There isn't any way to know for sure until you install it. In my experience, I've had both happen.

I was bored today, so I found my Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance disk and decided to play a bit. It installed fine and I'd ran it before, but then when I tried to run it, the disk would spin and I'd get the loading image. The disk suddenly stops spinning, then the program closes and I get the same old "This program has stopped working..." error. I've tried compatibility modes and running as administrator, but I still have no idea what's wrong.

Any help here? Thanks.

A:Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance Won't Run

Try completely uninstalling the program.

Then do the following:

Press the Windows key + R.

In the Run Command type: msconfig

Select the "Services" tab

Check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box

Click "Apply"

Click "OK"

Restart your computer and reinstall the program.

A:Tribes: Vengeance HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Just because the box is sealed doesn't mean the game is new.
It is very likely the person you both bought the game from has previously used the CD keys, and simply re-packaged the boxes.

I am not sure of what you can do. Waiting for Sierra to contact you back would probably be the best solution.
