I have set up an ASUS Zenith ii Extreme MB with Corsair Vengeance LPX 256GB (8x32GB) DDR4 3200 memory.
I tried to find memory on the QVL for this board, but nothing they list can be purchased. So went with the above mentioned kit. I did not want RGB memory either, not needed for this build.
At this time I have 229GB of the memory actually running, any configuration I have tried, changing DIMMs to different slots. I have lowered the voltage, upped the voltage, lowered timings, set XMP. Nothing works with all 8 DIMMs being used.
I can get 7 of the 8 to work. The errors go from “check CPU”, “Test NVRAM”, “Loading VGA” to the system thinking it has booted into an OS and no Video.
This system as a 1600 watt Thermaltake Platinum PSU. All ports for power are connected to the MB.
Anyone that could guide me as to what I could do to debug this more would be helpful. I have seen this in years past when a system had stated “8MB” of memory was supported but would only do 6MB (this is MB not GB) on a Pentium 100mhz system, many years ago.
I push most systems to the max but this is my first time having issues getting max memory to be supported on an MB.
Should I move to another MB, I have no problem there, I can get an exchange. I do like the USB support on this board so far and would hate to have to do that.
