  • E35M1-I Deluxe with Corsair XMS 8GB kit (2x 4GB)

    Having trouble with the combo E35M1-I Deluxe with Corsair XMS3 8GB kit (2x 4GB).

    Both modules work in both slots on the board, but not at once. I'm having big trouble finding a compatible MHz and Volt where the system will boot while both modules are plugged in at once.
    One time I got it to work with 800MHZ and 1.5V, but on the next reboot it wouldn't startup any more. The onboard button to tune the RAM found that one time, but never again.

    If I just plugin one module at a time, it automatic sets it to 1.61V (i think, or 1.6V) and 1333MHz. Any suggestions ?


    Another thing about this board I've noticed: As I use the board in a server build, I only use an old CRT monitor with VGA->DVI adapter. The BIOS doesn't seem to support such a low resolution as the 17" gives as default. There might not be anything to do about it, or it could be my adapter, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

    Final Edit
    For now these memory modules require a BIOS update, that isn't yet public, to work. Test-BIOS version 0090 fixes the issue, but you'll need to contact an ASUS employe to get hold of it. (Check replies in this thread). Official BIOS 1202 isn't enough.

    Re: E35M1-I Deluxe with Corsair XMS 8GB kit (2x 4GB)

    Looks like you just have to be persistent enough. Partly got my memory to work now.

    I went to ASUS homepage in the hope that they have a newer BIOS version then the initial one. I was happy to see that from the date there was a newer version then the one I had on the board already, however it was a smaller version number.

    According to my BIOS, it shipped with version 1001, however ASUS techsupport has never heard of that version. They are contacting Taiwan headquarters now to hear what they say. Oh well, that aside, I flashed the board with the downloaded version 0902 and tried to get it running with both modules Corsair XMS3 (CMX8GX3M2A1333C9).

    While one module was plugged in and it was working, I manually set the speed to 800 and volt to 1.5, cause I previously had it working with that briefly. Plugged in the 2nd module and started it up. It started with the same problems again. Red LED, no bootup. The AutoTune couldn't find a working setting, but everytime it stopped I just keept starting it over.
    Suddenly after like 5-6 attempts it worked. The system booted up and told me "autotune failed, set manually and save etc.." ....

    As I see it, it didn't fail but succeeded. It could boot, I could get to the BIOS. I entered and saved the current settings in the hope that it would be the right ones, saved the settings and rebooted.

    But as the one time before where I had it start with both modules, same problem again. WTF? I had just saved a working setting. So I started over persistent pushing the autotune button each time it finished unsuccessfully. Again as before, suddenly it worked. But this time I didn't get the failed message. I entered BIOS and saved settings just to be on the safe side. Rebooted and it started again. - Hope it stays that way

    Seems you just gotta be persistent enough, however it also seems there is some bug with either the BIOS or the board itself. Cause the setting it runs on now, is also the one I started the whole thing by entering. 800MHz and 1.5V ...

      this is starting to make less and less sense. Shut it proper down last night via the OS - everything worked fine, now I come back 18hours later and push the power button and we're back to square one ... memOK red, no startup, no bios, no nothing except a freaking red LED

        Can you provide your complete system configuration? The main things I need are the part number of your memory kit and the model of your PSU. I will try to duplicate this issue and if I can, I will report this issue to our HQ. Thanks.

          Re: E35M1-I Deluxe with Corsair XMS 8GB kit (2x 4GB)

          Case/PSU: Fractal Design Array R2 w/ 300W SFX PSU (PSU Model number: FSP300-60GHS)
          Board: ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe (Serial: B4M0CS489853)
          Ram: Corsair XMS3 4gb x2 (CMX8GX3M2A1333C9) label on module: 111404958, 9-9-9-24, 1.5v, ver8.11

          PSU specs: Array R2 Mini ITX NAS Case w/ 300W SFX PSU - Fractal Design)
          RAM specs: XMS3

          Error happens with just these devices as well as if its completely build together.

          Happy to provide more info if needed.

          [edit]
          Oh forgot, there are several people over at the FreeNAS 8 forums that run the same case/psu with this board, but different ram modules (mostly kingston)
          [edit2]
          About the BIOS mentioned in a previous reply, got the reply today that the 1001 BIOS version will be added to the normal page download soon, but still kinda weird to me that the board ships with a newer firmware then available for download. :)

            Thanks. And it works fine with just 1 of your XMS3 modules installed, correct?
            Can you send me a PM? It won't let me initiate a PM conversation for some reason but if you PM me I should be able to reply back. I need to get some other information. Thanks.

                  Happy to report that the test BIOS worked as it should and the ram runs as it should, thanks again Mason.

                  Just posting here in case someone else runs into the same problem before the new BIOS version officially is released, and finds this post with search.

                    I saw that the official ASUS page now features 2 new BIOS versions. 1001 that previous was missing (release version) and now also 1202. Was wondering if 1202 was the one I was sent to test, cause then I would apply the "real" version instead of the 0090test version.

                    Tried mailing you again with this Mason, but I got a daemon msg back that there wasn't any space to deliver the msg and that it failed.

                      Hello,
                      I've got a E35M1 Deluxe, and encounter the same issue with 2x2G Corsair XMS3 DDR3 memory.
                      Reference is TW3X4G1333C9A.
                      1 memory at a time works perfectly (with each), but with 2, I have problems booting, and when it boots, it detects 4096Mo on boot, but only 2048Go inside BIOS setup (and at 1066MHz instead of 1333MHz when only one chip is present).

                      I have upgraded to BIOS revision 1202, without change.

                      Do you have a solution ?

                      Thanks,

                            I'm still waiting to hear back from them. Some of our engineers will be out of the office for a couple of weeks so it may be a couple of weeks before I have an answer. However, I assume that the memory patch implemented in 0090 did not yet make it's way into an official release. I don't have the changelogs for the 2 new official releases but I do know that the main purposes of the 2 new BIOS releases were for some overclocking performance/features and those builds were being worked on before I sent you 0090 so we're probably at least one more official release away from having the 0090 memory patch implemented into an official build. When I hear back from HQ I will post here with the update.
