Wow ... that's A LOT of RAM ... I'm only running 16 GB myself, and was told I got too much ? Anyway, either the G. Skill's or the Mushkin's should work for you ... two of the top memory brands.

 

First off I don't think too many people in our group are actually running 32 GB, most seem to fall in the 8 - 16 GB range, secondly a lot more people are running G' Skill sticks of RAM than are running Mushkin's, and a lot of those are running the Sniper's and love them ... though I do know we have at least a handful of Mushkin users ... you should look through the Google Owners List on the Front Page. I'd send a PM to those that run a set-up similar to what you're trying to do.

 

But be sure to try and double check that the model # of your RAM is on the ASUS QVL for your board (Check the UPDATED list on the ASUS Website, not an old list in your manual), I know when our Gene IV first came out not too many 32 GB kits were.

 

As long as you stick to 1.5v Dual-Channel kits I think you should be OK ?

It's all going to run the same. It's about personal brand preference. Both of the brands you mentioned are great. Personally, I'd go with Mushkin as I enjoy their Enhanced series but it doesn't make a difference either way.

Hmmm ... A LOT and I mean A LOT ! of use are using the CORSAIR VENGEANCE RAM w/o any Issue's at all ... so I know it may come across as rudimentary but since it tended to be such a common problem I got to ask, are you 100% sure you've got your RAM Seated down securely into the DIMM slots ? with the ASUS ROG slots having that one side FIXED down, a lot of people have trouble with this.

 

 

 

 

Also is the Board giving you any DEBUG ERROR CODE ? or are any of the HDD LED or Q LED lights on ?

I think they have a lot of warranty claims though. I know I've had a few dud sets over the last few years. Had better luck with GSkill.

Not saying that may not infact end up being the case, just find alot of issues and complaints tend to end up being user error when it comes to this stuff. winksmiley.jpg

And I've got G. Skill's in my other Rig, so yeah I like them too ... but I liked the look and color of the CORSAIR Vengeance more at the time, and thought it matched this mother board better

... however IF I had to buy new RAM for the GENE over again, I think I would do G. Skill also.
