Wannabe:

Identify a stick of RAM that you know is good. Don't attempt to use the other sticks. Set them aside.

Here is your manual if you don't have it:

GA-EP41-UD3L (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Manual


Here is a picture of your board.

Tell us where you are connecting your cables from the PSU to the board.

Tell us what single slot you are attempting to use with your known good RAM stick.
My EP41 is the 1 that didn't have any damage, the 1 that was damaged is GA-P31, the only DIMM that is working is DIMM4.

I highlighted where I connected the PSU and the working DIMM in the following picture>>

Everything was connected correctly, I didn't force in any cables or anything, everything just went into the MB smoothly like how it's supposed to be..


@peb Actually I don't even use the WL KB+M anymore, I'm all wired now, better go update my specs.

If I understand you correctly:

You have the model 41 board and as far as you know it is not damaged?

Does your manual say you made the correct connections as shown in your diagram?

clear the cmos by using the correct mobo jumper ,load bios defaults and see what happens , you could place a sheet of A4 paper between mobo and outer case to eliminate shorts

Confusion:

You say in post 12 that only slot 4 is working.

What makes you think that is true?? How can you prove that? What makes you think you have ANY good slots?

Pebbly:

I think that may be it. He needs to connect the 20 of the 20/4 to the only 20 pin port on the board and to connect the square 4 of the 20/4 to the only square 4 pin port on the board. I hope he is simply using the wrong lead from the PSU.

I looked at the OCZ manual and it doesn't show the cables--only the connections on a mobo. So if there is another similar looking square 4 pin leading out of the PSU, that may be what he has mistakenly used.

But I don't know yet why the OP thinks he has good or bad RAM or good or bad slots.

The mobo manual says a single stick should go in one of the yellow slots (1 or 3)

hi ignatz , he does need to connect all 24 pins ,the 4 pin connectors should be identified as power,cpu and pci-e they also should have foolproof configurations to suit the different 12v power rails

Pebbly:

Here is a pic from OCZ site for a 600 watt PSU. As far as I can tell, it is the ONLY 600 watt unit they make, so I hope this is it:
