Asus x99 ROG Gaming Mainboard Isnt Posting/Booting with 8x 8GB @ 3200MHZ Trident Z RGB

Hi Everyone , I been having issues with my board booting up at a certain Ram speed . Please help / advice. My PC isnt booting up ( POST ) with its original speed . Only boots when the ram speed is downclocked .

PC Specs :

CPU : Intel Core i7 6800K @ 3.4GHZ | OCed to 4.2 GHZ
RAM : 64GB DDR4 3200 MHZ Trident Z RGB ram.
GPU : Gigabyte xTreme Gaming GTX 1080 8GB
SSD : Samsung Evo 960 250GB M.2 SSD
SSD : Samsung Evo 850 1TB SSD ( 2.5 Inch )
HDD : Western Digital Black 4TB
PSU : Corsair HX850i ( 80+ Platinum )

Here's my Issues .

Issues 1 :

OverClocked CPU to 4.2 GHZ with 3000MHZ DRAM Frequency = Boots up fine but having random Crashes . Window Stop Code : Memory Error .

Issues 2 :

OverClocked CPU To 4.2GHZ with 3200MHZ Dram Frequency = No POST . No display . Bios Debug Code Keep Jumping to 00 .

So far I have tested :

Test 1 :

OCed CPU to 4.2GHZ with 8x 8GB 2800 MHZ DRAM Frequency = Boots up and is Stable .

Test 2 :

OCed CPU to 4.2GHZ with 4x 8GB Ram and XMP 3200MHZ enabled = Boots Up and is Stable .

Test 3 :

OCed CPU To 4.2 GHZ with 5x8GB Ram and XMP 3200MHZ enabled = No POST

Test 4 :

Default bios setting with 5x 8GB Ram and XMP 3200MHZ enabled = No Post .


Bios Version Tested :

Bios Version 1504 .
Bios Version 1701 .

  1. I hate to say it but some asus boards just flat out don't agree with certain ram. I've seen it with the x99-e ws and a certain g.skill 3000 ram (8x8gb). Board refused to clock it via xmp and i couldn't get it to run at spec no matter what manual settings i tried. Even at stock 2133 the machine would have random reboots, blue screens, etc. Tried a couple other different kits and they worked fine. It's just the nature of the beast.

    The weird thing is that the board is able to boot with XMP mode @ 3200MHZ ( Original Ram Speed ) with 4x 8GB . But anything more than 4 stick ram the XMP wouldnt boot at all . Any other advice ? i have the latest bios version 1701 still cant get it to boot @ 3200 MHZ 8x8GB XMP mode or 3200 Via Manuel setting .

  3. I've literally had that exact same thing happen on an asrock board with a g.skill 8x8gb kit. Switched to a different ram and all good

    It is really weird . it boots up stable @ 3,200 MHZ via 4x8 GB ram . Did call the RMA center and they say is the bored chipset doesnt support 3,200 MHZ .. but it does support with 4x 8GB ram and not more than 4 Sticks @ 3200 MHZ .
