Any luck? I'm having a similar problem. I initially had a set of Kingston sticks rated for 6400Mhz and couldn't get any stability at 6400Mhz or 6000Mhz. Now I'm using a set of G.Skill sticks on the QVL list and the same exact stability issues.i hope we don't go another month or more before another bios update. I am not happy spending this much on a Mobo that doesn't work anywhere near expectations.
nope i got kingston to agree to a refund for the kit since i'm past when i can return it to the store. i ordered a 64 gig kit kit of g skill expo ram its not on the asus qvl list but g skill claims to have test the ram on one of these boards. ram comes tueday hopefully so will see on that.
i also am exchanging out the cpu with amazon in case its a memory controller issue. that should be here tomorrow or monday
asus has been largely useless i been speaking to Thomas Yiu Technical Product Manager i believe he is pretty high up in there tech dept and hasn't really offered any solutions he said there engineers put together a system with the same hardware i listed off and were able to get it to post. so makes 0 since how i've tired everything. all they keep telling me clean the ram and the slots or for the first few days it was hard to get them to understand this wasn't expo ram it was docp and docp was the only setting.
i ran 2 passes in memtest 86 with the ram at 4800 and it passed with 0 errors. so i can only assume the ram isn't totally bad but maybe it just can't handle the 5600 speed but who knows.
ya that's what i told asus in Canada this board cost $1350 cad plus taxes... suppose to be an extreme over clockers board I'm not even trying to do anything extreme with it just get ram to run at its rated speed and i can't even get it to do that lol
