the 16gb ram was on 4 modules. by swapping in and out I was able to find the one bad module.
Can you tell me the exact name of the memory which you use?
I have the same mobo an G.Skill F3-14900CL9Q-16GBXL memory (DDR1866CL9),
which doesn't work yet.
And your - new? - memory works perfect?
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.
