    DX58OG lockups with 24 GB ram installed


      Built a DX58OG with i7 950 and six Kinston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX  ram modules installed (24 GB). No OC or tweaking features used. System will randomly lock up every day and requires a hard reset. With three Kinston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX ram modules installed (12 GB) system is stable for one month now. Would like to run with 24 GB.


      Test notes


      With 6 ram modules (24 GB)


      run Heavyload - fails after ~ 40 minutes

      run MS Security Essentials, full scan - fails after ~ 60% of scan completed


      At each failure system locks up, mouse & keyboard lights turn off. Hardware reset is required.



      With 3 ram modules (12 GB)


      run Heavyload - pass every time


      run MS Security Essentials, full scan - pass every time


      During tests which I ran for 28 days (I'm patient) I replaced the following items one after the other until only the original DX58OG board remained:


      hard drives

      video card

      power supply

      all ram modules


      Anyone have an idea about how I can get a 24 GB system running 100%?
