G703 - RAM Update to 64GB Notebook won't boot

hanswalter

My Rig has 32 GB RAM on Board. Now when i put in 2 x 16GB RAM from G.Skill F4-2800C18S-16GRS the Notebook doesn't boot anymore. BIOS is 301.
The Keyboard get red and then shows all color but not Boot Sound or Asus Logo. It doesn't matter if i put on one or two Memory Bars in no reaction.

When i put out the Memory Bars the System is booting up flawless. Any help is welcome.

Want to open a Support Ccase but the Serialnumber is not recognized.

Sounds like wrong type of RAM to me; there's different types; DDR2, DDR3 etc...

No because the hwinfo says G.Skill F4-2800C18-16GRS for the buildin and i buy the same vendor F4-2800C18S-16GRS

What timings are you seeing in HWiNFO? My G703 is showing Apacer Technology 76.D305G.D060B which run at 17-17-17-39.
Those GSkill sticks show 18-18-18-43 on their website. If the timings are in fact different, they most likely wont take the lower CAS. They also show being supported by Intel 6th Gen Procs on the GSkill site, the G703 is running 7th gen.
Volts are the same as the Apacer sticks @ 1.2v. The QVL list is really small for those sticks, only a handful of devices, none Asus. I might return those and look for sticks that you know would work? Such as the Apacer sticks in my G703?

Looks like Asus has used these Apacer sticks in other ROG laptops as well, as seen here:

I didnt know GSkill supplied to OEMs. Did the laptop come from a performance retailer of some kind? Curious as to the origin to know if those sticks in the laptop originally came from Asus?
(ROG has simply become too expensive compared to the competition with same specs... 😞 )
