I built a new system using the dz68bc, intel 510 ssd, i5 2500k, seasonic 650w ps and 16gb ddr3 1600 gskill ripjaws. I expected that I would be able to use the hd3000 graphics but I'm getting nothing to my Samsung 2243bwx. The bios display shows following codes at power-up: 15, then 30, then 2e. As I said, I'm getting no video at all and no beep codes; and I don't find 2e in the provided list of bios codes. I don't have spare processors, memory, pci-e video cards or such equipment. Any troubleshooting help would be greatly appreciated.
The memory set was G.Skill F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL, a somewhat slower device than the one you mentioned.
It was working great with 3 of the 4 modules (12GB) for about a week then the Seasonic X Series X650 Gold power supply died; I had good luck with Seasonic before so I went with them again for this build - waiting on a replacement PS from newegg (Corsair this time).
I have the same problem. Will not boot, or show anything on screen with 4 chips.
Put 2 chips in channel A and it will work just fine with 8 gb. Have been going round and round with intel. The RibJaws memory is certified to work. What do we do now. I have exchanged my MB and Proc from neweeg but still have same problem.
Have you been able to resolve this issue? I have the same problem. Started with 2 x 4GB of Corsair XMS3 1333 didnt work. I went ahead and ordered 2 x 4Gb of Kingston Hyperx 1600 same problem. I'm about to rip this board out and send it back. To think I opted for it because of stability problems with a previous ASUS.

If you look at the very high number of posts here from users with 'Extreme Series' boards such as this one and the DX58SO series, you'll realise that if you want the greatest stability, these are definitely NOT the products to go with. Just like Formula One racing, they're bleeding edge performance products where if you want it to work correctly you have to have ideally matched components down to the last degree.
That means using recommended (by Intel) bits where possible - anything else is at your own risk. There's a long list of compatible memory for the DZ68BC.
