    Hey guys just got 2 new sticks of ddr3 8gb corsair vengeance.

    Tried setting the clocks to recommended 11-13-13-31 with 1.652v with linked settings

    They are sat in slots 2 &4 on my motherboard because I can't access slot 1 because on my CPU heat sink.
    Would they be better in slots 3&4?

    Also my motherboard settings would only let me set them as 2133mhz max instead of the 2400 they are rated at. Mother board is a main gd-65.

    When I boot with these setting I get a black screen.

    What have I done wrong?

    reset BIOS to stock settings
    update BIOS to latest firmware

    let BIOS decide the best settings

    timings make little difference and your mobo might not support the speed of the RAM or 2400mhz?

    What about slots as it's dual channel. Does 2&4 or 3&4 make any difference?

    The manual should have this information as to which is best

    your manual will tell you however my mobo stated use 2 and 4 first then 1 and 3.

    i would use either of the above but don't use 2 beside each other.
