  1. hey guys,
    I bought a Abit TH7-Raid mobo, and two sticks of 512mb PC800 Rambus. Now the motherboard has four memory banks, and I only filled up two of those banks. The thing is the mobo should have come with two terminator CIMMS, that fill up the empty memory banks.....but for some odd reason these CIMMS did not come with the board....arggggghhh!!!! just wondering if anyone knows with you need these to run the system.....because my mobo don't work, it doesn't even beep at me.....the HD's whine up and thats it.......

    :dead:

    Well definitely buy them and see if your mobo works w/ them.
    If not, there's tons of things that could be wrong.
    Contact Abit and see if you can pry them out of their hands, if not, they should be pretty cheap :)
