HI m8 i have a asus x99e m/b my old cpu was a e5 2603 v3 my ram is two Kingston 16gb all qvl which it reads all ok np. I upgraded to a e 1650 v3 and now it wil only read one stick in the bios I tried everything possible and have gone back to my old cpu to use the two rams no bent pins because the 2603 is ok I tried latest bios update ,went back to original bios nothing worked,I ran intel diags all pass only reads one stick, I cannot see any difference in the stats of the 1650 unless its in the micro code ,any way thanks for the reply Cheers brian Sent from Mail for Windows 10

This is a question you need to ask ASUS. Ask them if your 1650 v3 is supported by their boards BIOS.

I would seriously consider a motherboard/bios, or memory incompatibility problem, rather than thinking you have found a problem in a processor. from six years ago.

 

Did you purchase the processor new, or used? Does it have ES on the processor lid?

just curious - how does one refurbish a processor, besides wiping the thermal paste off? To me, "refurbished" in this context is a [decieving] sales tactic. You may want to keep your receipt and prepare to send it back.

It sounds to me like this processor has a dead memory channel. I would return it.
