Am struggling to get a brand new system:
to successfully run Win 7 Ultimate with 16Gb (2x 8Gb sticks).
Both sticks pass Windows memtest and memtest86 both individually and together. Memory error LED on mobo does not stay red when system is running.
Qualified memory support list on the web site is useless as it claims the mobo has
4 DIMM slots while it only has 2 and does not list anything larger than 4Gb. The manual in print and online has a larger list but also does not list any single 8Gb stick:
When both sticks are in, I get general application failures: windows session won't start as winlogonui.exe errors popup and are in the events log.
Otherwise, windows explorer dies and other memory reference errors pop up.
I played it safe and did not get overclocked DIMMs.
ASUS customer support said that this memory was slow for the machine yet still supported this speed (1333) and suggested to set BIOS to the slower DRAM settings.
The Corsair memory was confirmed compatible by corsair support.
Anyone have experience with this mobo/memory combo?
