Ok, I have lovely new 990FXA-UD7 all installed, all works wonderfully.... except I can only get it to run smooth or at all with half the ram, 8GB only, as soon as I try to put all 4 sticks in, BSOD when going into windows, or not long after, every time... I've run all sticks through memtest and all have passed after 5-6 hours each....
A bit of background... I have RMA'd a crossfire V Formula twice due to a faulty board, twice, would you believe, so I told ASUS to shove it and went for the UD7, not a single crash for a month solid, works like a dream, I also had to RMA my first pack of the corsair RAM, 2 of the 4 sticks were faulty, and got back a brand new sealed pack.... I know, huge waiting by the mail box missions.... my PC is now called Lucky13... 9 weeks I went without it, due to faulty components
but all is well now and I am wondering if there is any trick to getting all 16 GB of RAM to run?
