Level 7
Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade to 8GB DIMMs of RAM in my Maximus Hero VIII. I had a stick of Corsair 3000Mhz 8GB (CMK8GX4M1D3000C16) but I've noticed that this isn't on the QVL so not too surprised I get an QCode CC/55.
I'm looking at Hyper X instead but can only find HX424C15FB2/8 rather than HX424C15FB/8 which is whats listed on the QVL. Does anyone know if this will still work with this board or should I be looking for something else?

Any help would be appreciated.


Edit: Didn't work, still the same error codes... If I put 1x8GB stick in B1 then the Q Code is A6 or maybe Ab? (not sure). If its in any other slot I get Q code CC then 55.

Ive updated the bios through the USB Flash port but that hasn't changed anything. I've unpluggd all the HDDs and SSDs and tried a different PSU but this also hasn't made a difference. Im using a i5 7500 CPU.

Can anyone help, I'm a bit stuck.
