I was able to boot with 3 sticks of memory because I increased the vccsa at 1.2v and the vccio at 1.15v. But it failed with 4 sticks. I will try increasing voltages bit by bit but I'm a bit worried by the fact that I still need to put 5 sticks on the motherboard...
Any ideas to share ?
Is your memory on the QVL list for that board? Even if the memory manufacture states the memory is compatible, in my experience that does not mean the memory will work. Only the memory the board states will work will do so.You can't just use any memory in the newer CPU/chipset platforms, they are very particular about which memory they will accept.
Don't use the XMP profile at first, that is higher performance and it's easier for the board to use memory at the default speed. Set the memory speed settings to Auto in the EUFI/BIOS.
I've been able to run 5 sticks fine by increasing vccsa at 1.25v (20GB). I've tried 6 sticks but it doesn't boot, people frome G-Skill advised me to try with vccsa at 1.27v because memory controller would need more power with lots of sticks.
My memory is at default speed with the good timings set manually. I don't use XMP profile.
I saw the QVL list for that board but it's very limited...
Or maybe I'll have to wait for Intel to release a newer bios version.
I'd just like to add that in fact it loops boot with POST code 67. Do you know what it means ?
In fact I discovered that it's not a "67" error code but "b7".
