Hello there

Please list all your hardware.

Reseat your CPU cooler it may be mounted unevenly.

Try with one stick of ram and test each memory slot.

Exept for the motherboard, have corsair memory, Asus GTX 780 Ti GPU, Corsair 785W PSU, Corsair H100 CPU cooler, and thats about it really.

I did try whit only one stick of ram (in slot A1) and i worked, tried one more in the B1 slot and it was fine.
But when i try to put one in A1 and the other one in A2 it does not work.
Same whit B1 & B2, does not work. So now im running whit one stick in A1 slot, and the other one in B1.

I also tried to fill ut evry slot (A1, A2, B1 & B2), and that did not work ether.

Ofcourse i want every slot to work like they are intended to.
so what may the problem be???

Remove your CPU and inspect the CPU socket for any bent or missing pins. And what is the exact model of your memory?

I did try all of the steps.
I tryed all the memory things and its like I listed above.

I did remove the CPU cooler and looked at the CPU itself, and there was no damage to the CPU.

But i still cant use slot B2 & A2. If i try to put a Ram in one of thouse slots, the computer will not start.
It kind of start and then i shuts down, starts again and shuts down, And it just continue doing this untill I force it to shutdown.

I tried the "MEM OK" button and it will not accept the ram when i have it in A1-A2 or B1-B2.

The memory I have is:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9
Product number: CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

This ram is compatible whit my MB. I have checked this.

Using 2 sticks of memory, they must be used in slots A1 and B1. If you're using 4 sticks of memory, then, of course, you would be using A2 & B2. If you look at the slots, notice that A1 & B1 are the same color and A2 & B2 are the same color. You must fill up the number 1 slots first.

Did you look at the socket pins? Please post up a high res image of the socket from different angles to best see if a pin is out of alignment.
