    Hi,
    I've recently finished building a computer and i turn it on and there is no connection to the screen, at first i thought it was my screen but i tried 3 others and still not working. I then thought maybe my GPU was broken so i took it out and tried another still no display eventually i discovered that my RAM voltage was too high for my Motherboard. I have two sticks of PNY DDR3 DIMM 4GB RAM 2.5V and I figured it would be cheaper to buy a motherboard which would run the RAM as i spent £90 on the ram overall. Can anyone tell me a motherboard i can buy to support my 2.5V RAM for about £60 - £70,
    My computer specs are as follows:
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 960T 3.0Ghz black edition
    GPU: ATI Radeon 5770 HD GDDR5 1GB HIS
    RAM: PNY PC3-10660 DDR3 PC Memory - 4GB DIMM RAM 2.5V
    PSU: 850W Win Power Plus
    MoBo: Gigabyte GA-770T-D3L (Doesn't support the RAM)

    Any suggestions to a MoBo that willl support my 2.5V RAM please

    Standard DDR3 is 1.5Volts so 2.5 volts is well above the spec if that's correct, what is the exact model of this RAM you have?

    That might be a typo, the description lists 1.5 volts. Do you have a part number on the memory itself?

    Why did you spend £90 on this RAM? Thats massively overpriced. I can't find any useful for that RAM.

    Can you borrow some RAM from someone or another PC and try it? The RAM may not even be the problem. Have you looked at the troubleshooting guide at the top of this forum?

    I think it may be the motherboard as it has no beeps or anything i've tried with RAM and without it and still nothing at all

    There are 2 revisions of that motherboard, 1.x or 3.1
    Which one do you have ? It will be written on the board and probably in the manual.

    If it's the 3.1 the problem could be it needs the later FD Bios to run that Cpu.

    I think you are fine as the Gigabyte website only lists F4 for all the CPU's and that's the first release for that board.
