8GB G.Skill F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK in Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L rev. 2.0

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L rev. 2.0
BIOS: F8b
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz 8MB Cache 1066 MHz FSB)
Memory: G.Skill F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK (2x)

I’m trying to install two sets of the above memory for a totalof 8GB of ram in the above motherboard. When I install only one set (4gb)everything works fine.

I’ve followed the procedure outlined here (http://www.gskill.us/166.pdf page 9),but when I’m installing all four sticks for a total of 8GB, the motherboardwon’t even post. This is very frustrating.

Canyou offer any help or suggestions?

If they are not a matched pair it will not work. If you have two sets of matched pairs. Each pair will have to go into the right pairing slot. Example one set you go in slots 0 and 2 and the other in slots 1 and 3. If you have stickers on the memory sticks look for a group of numbers and letters one group will match it's mate.

You need to reset your computer bios back from its original settings. While turning on your computer keep pressing the del key on your keyboard until you get to the BIOS utility screen. Select the BIOS default option and then save settings and exit.

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to : it_mid@yahoo.com


Hi,

First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2889&ProductName=GA-G31M-ES2L

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

Well my system temperature is reaching heats of 50oc under load and I believe it is making my computer freeze causing me to restart. I was wondering how exactly this temperature is measured and where...


Many motherboards take two temps. Motherboard temp and CPU temp. CPU temp is the most common problem. Check there first. You might need a faster fan or a larger heat sink. Also make sure the pc isn't enclosed in anything. It needs to have air moving around it on both main sides, the front and back.
