Okay, so before I search for hours on the threads looking for my own issues/solutions, I just thought I'd make a quick thread hoping someone here with more knowledge than me can give some quick advice/answer some noob questions.
First, the newest computer we are putting together only boots via Go Button. Which, if I understand right, shoots up the bios with temporary safe settings before allowing you to OC. It boots consistently that way and reads everything correctly as stock settings save for the RAM.
The post message reads that we should edit the settings before continuing. That's where I get a little confused even though the bios is probably the most user-friendly bios I've ever worked with.
The only thing I have edited in the bios is the RAM and boot order (to have the motherboard run the RAM at the correct settings and to boot from CD).
The RAM we are using is the G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C11D-16GZL. The timing is supposed to be 11-11-11-31 at 2133. I've inputed those numbers, but there are other options there that I don't understand, and don't mess with.
Once I have the bios set up with that, I use F10 to save and exit, reboot. It doesn't boot up. I starts, goes through some codes (10, 0C, F.F.) and then shuts down. I can boot it with the Go Button afterwards, but every time I edit the bios, the settings don't save and it won't reboot without using the Go Button.
I'm assuming that I didn't input the bios settings right or that maybe the processor we have isn't capable of utilizing the RAM, or worse yet, the motherboard doesn't support the RAM we chose. I went online to look at the QVL list, but it was so out of date (2011), I took a gamble I bought the board anyways.
The CPU is an AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX.
What do you guys think?
