192gb of DDR5 possible on Asus Z690-e?

I wanted to know if it's possible to run 192GB of DDR5 RAM on my motherboard, Asus z690-e gaming wifi.

I ask because there is some ambiguity in the documentation provided by Asus.

On the asus website for the motherboard, it is stated that it can support 192GB of ram.

In the motherboard manual, on page vii under the specifications summary, it says that the max memory supported is only 128GB.

Under the memory QVL for the motherboard, there are 96GB (2x48GB) memory sticks listed as being supported inferring that 4x48GB memory sticks (192GB) could be run, in theory. However, it also states that under socket support "1,2" are compatible with these memory sticks. As an aside, can anyone clarify exactly what this means? I saw other posts that said that this meant that one could only install these memory sticks in slots 1 and 2; however all memory under the QVL is listed as "socket support 1,2" only which would mean all 4 memory slots could never be run together, which doesn't make any sense.

Thanks.

Hi there,

These kits are present on the QVL, so are supported. Socket support means the kit has been validated by ASUS in that configuration.

e.g 1,2 means only with two modules. 1,2,4 means with all 4 modules from that particular memory kit.

The landing page for the board likely hasn't been updated, as when the boards launched, the 48gb modules were not on the market. Hence why it states 128gb and not 192gb.

Thank you. I missed the 4x48 option for searching for memory in the QVL tool.
