First time poster here!:

I have a set of Patriot xtreme Intel masters 4x4 2133mhz memory that isn't being read by the board. When I check the bios it says only 4gb is being read. DIMM slots used are the A1, A2, B1 and C1 as far as how the manual says I should do it. I have tried using the XMP profile but still will not read.

I've cleaned the dimms, tried re seating, installing one at a time, MemOK checks out and still nothing.

I should add with voltage set @ 1.5v it doesnt read the timing correct on the XMP profile. It should be 9-9-9-27 but it reads at 9-9-9-26 and the GHz is off when being corrected, it's at something like 2232ghz

Is their something I'm doing wrong? Please help , because I've exhausted practically all avenues.

Thanks for your time

What a set of Patriot xtreme Intel masters 4x4 2133mhz memory is another question. Without a part number or link to memory, it is difficult to know what that is. Maybe the manufacturer can be of more help.

Xmp will let me go to 2133ghz or so that's what it says on the stick with 11-11-11-27 timing
I tried using 3 sticks in the beige slots. Should I have been using brown?

Either way, I'm not too worried on the speed if its 1066 max, but what does concern me is that it won't even read two or three sticks. I have a pair of 8gb Ballistix that reads just fine. If I use the Patriot memory with the Ballistix on the same channel (B1 & B2) it will read at 12gb.
