Lying RAM
« on: September 22, 2018, 05:31:18 PM »
beep beep. Computer decided not to boot.

So I popped the side, and reversed 2/8 ram sticks

Computer boots normally.

Jerk.

eh, it happened again, I did it again.

The machine REALLY doesn't like running with the side panel off. Big 'ol BIOS warning, then it spins all the fans up to top speed.

This thing has a lot of fans, it got loud.

But it's working now, and that's all I really care about.
