  • How to setup F3-1600C11S with Asus P5Q3


    I'm, trying to boost my old PC that has an ASUS P5Q3 motherboard that states it supports DDR3-1600. It currently uses 2 OCZ 1Gb 1600 modules.

    I've purchased 1x4Gb G.Skill DIMM described below, and I can't have the PC to boot - nothing appears on the screen.

    I've painstakingly tried many configurations - each time booting my old memory, setting the BIOS parameters, and then inserting the new one - and none of them gave me any progress.

    I've tried following past posts regarding this motherboard; i.e. OC to1600, manually setting memory voltage to 1.5V and setting latencies to 11-11-11-28, but had no progress.

    Any hope of making this DIMM work on this motherboard?

    Many thanks.
