Proud to be an ASUS power user!!!
Any eta on this? I am thinking of sending the board back to scan... Currently have no PC
If you can RMA it and get anther do so. The fact you are using a SB is different from the other instances of the error55 that I have seen.
As far as I am aware you are the only SandyBridge person having this issue. All others are IVY and their slots work just fine - the problem for them is a BIOS fix I am sure. I have duplicated the issue with IVY many times over, and each time I pop a SB cpu into the board all the slots and the ram work just fine.
It just could be that your issue is not the same. Maybe you should post your own thread and list all your hardware and those things that you have done to problem solve.
We have a pretty good success rate here on ROG fixing stuff for users.
I tried loosening up the cooler bracket like 8 pack suggested, but still nothing.
Just to reiterate, I'm using unmatched 4gb samsung sticks. Is it because they're unmatched that the board is acting like this?
Naw man, Im using matched ram and I cannot use slots a1 or a2 either.
I'm becoming disheartened with this maximus gene v board between the a1 & a2 ram problem and the non working wifi mini pci adapter. If Hivizman wasn't so ontop of the community with his excellent support / information I would have RMAd the sucker for a Gigabyte sniper already.
