Hey there i have a Msi Z68 GD80(g3) mobo and a very specific problem.
Namely i can only get 2 ram sticks to work on it. I tried inserting all 4 ram sticks but it would either turn on and then shortly after turn off OR it would turn on but no signal would appear on the monitor. I tested all ram sticks and if i inserted them into the 2 specific "working" slots all of them would work.
What makes me believe it's not a slot issue aswell is that when i try to insert only one of them into 1 of the 2 working slots it doesn't work. If i try to insert the 2 ram into the other 2 slots it doesn't work either.
So there's this very specific thing where only if i put 2 ram into those 2 specific slots it would work otherwise it wouldn't.
Any ideas ? (tried flashing the bios already and no pins are bent)
