Exactly, all of the pins are foolproof, I can't screw it up even if I wanted to!! and believe, I really don't..

I even tried to connect only the 20pins and left the 4pins unplugged but nothing changed.. (The 4pins which come with the 20pins not the CPU 4pins, I'm not an idiot..)

Here is the mobo.

Yeah 24 pins (20 plus 4) in one plug and a separate 4 over by the CPU.

Wannabe:

Explain why you think you have only 1 good RAM stick and only 1 good slot on this current board.

Mobo manual says you should use yellow slots for a single stick.

Have you confirmed your RAM is approved by Gigabtye?

Have you tried all of this with the mobo outside the case on a table?

Yes, that's correct.

1- The board that has 3 slots broken is P31, there is currently nothing wrong with EP41.. I tried different sets of RAMs which are compatible with the P31 board on the 4 RAM slots and only 1 slot works..

2- Yes, they are approved by GB..

Appears to be a good unit. It is made by Fortron Group, which is a good sign. It appears to have the standard expected set of connectors. You would not necessarily use them all, depending on your motherboard.

From looking at the picture of your motherboard and the manual diagram, you need to connect the 24 pin power connector from the PSU to the mobo. And a separate square 4 pin connector goes to the motherboard within an inch or so of the CPU.

Its up to you to confirm that there is only 1 possible connector on the power supply that could possibly connect to that square 4 pin plug near the CPU.

You have to confirm they are not rotated 90 or 180 degrees. That is normally impossible because the connections are keyed to prevent installation when rotated.

But Pebbly needs an answer to his RAM LED questions and I would like to know about my question on RAM and slots. Why are they known to be bad.

Have you reviewed the other motherboard connections--fans, front panel, power switch, etc?

Confusion still.

Here is a quote from your post:

"The board that has 3 slots broken is P31, there is currently nothing wrong with EP41.. I tried different sets of RAMs which are compatible with the P31 board on the 4 RAM slots and only 1 slot works."

You say there is nothing wrong on the EP 41.

You then say "only one slot works". Present tense. Do you mean only one slot works on the current board? Or do you mean only one slot WORKED (past tense) on the old board.

We need to know you are now dealing with one board only and explicitly if THIS board has dead slots.

I don't understand "shaking" RAM.

Do you know that the RAM that is approved for use on the old board is also approved on the new board? Or are you now using totally different sticks than you used on the old board?
