[SOLVED] PC in Boot Loop after adding more RAM (cold start)

Hello,

so yesterday while I was gaming I decided to add my 8GB RAM that i had lying around. (Because the game crashed a few times).

-----
(PC probably had a certain temp after playing)
I built them in and it worked. I could play all night.


----
Then I went to sleep and wanted to boot my computer -> It got into a Boot Loop (always powered On for 2 sec and then turned off again while the fans were making some weird loop noise (fast - slow)).

----
Now I removed the 2 added Sticks of RAM and everything is working fine again.

I had this problems when I built my PC aswell a few years ago but I thought i might give it a try again, after updating the BIOS to the newest version (thats why I had 8GB lying around).


----
All of the RAM Sticks are the same Modell and Brand.
I use Slot 1 + 2 for 2 Sticks and 3 + 4 for the added ones.

Bios looks fine aswell timing is on 14-14-14 and Voltage on 1.2V.

My setup:

Intel Core i5-6600
Gigabyte GA-B150-HD3P Intel B150 So.1151
2x Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB Kit DDR4-2133 CL14 (HX421C14FBK2/8)
4GB Sapphire Radeon R9 380 Nitro
Corsair VX550W PSU


I guess the issue has something to do with the temperature - since it worked when I put them in after gaming but now when I woke up and the room/PC didnt have a certain temperature it couldnt boot.

Any idea what the issue could be?

Thanks.
 
Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
A motherboard must manage all the ram using the same specs of voltage, cas and speed.
The internal workings are designed for the capacity of the kit.
Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
Some motherboards, can be very sensitive to this.
This is more difficult when more sticks are involved.
That is why ram vendors will NOT support ram that is not bought in one kit.

With only a working set of sticks installed, go into the bios and increase the ram voltage.
Then try adding your extra sticks and see if that works.
