I just built my new computer. When i try to put it in 2x4GB of ram, it does a 1 long beep and no image on the screen. When i have only a single stick in, it works fine. I have tried the 2nd ram and still the same thin if i alternate around. Speccy. The ram stick are identical. If you look at the ram, it says 11-11-11-28 but on the ram stick itself it says XMP CL-9-9-24. Does it have to do with that XMP Memory Profile thing in the BIOS?

Yeah, the XMP can be enabled in BIOS to set the timings, but hold off on that.

Question- You tried the two sticks in combo in all slots (the slots needed to run dual channel)? I had a build (AMD 8XX chipset) where the RAM would only work in dual channel on the slots farthest away from the CPU. Otherwise no boot, not even a beep.

Is RAM voltage 1.5V? Bump it to 1.65 to see if it boots.

Reset CMOS if that don't work. Post back sir.

I tried your suggestion and it didn't work but i tried putting the stick in slot 1 and 2 and it just booted. I checked if it actually detects 8GB which it does and it is dual channel, so it's pretty solved. Thanks for your help dpunisher!
