Thanks for posting that video....when I had 2 stick in it was set to 58..i changed it to 100 and put in 3 ram triple channel and no luck. Will try to play with it and see if that get it work. First time i am hearing about refresh rate so will need to play with it, hopefully that will fix it.

AFAIK there is no Asus rep here (but if there is they are not very active at all). You can go to the Asusrog.com forums to contact someone, but I don't see how they're going to help. They probably tested the board and it worked fine. Something is wrong on your end like I've explained twice. You have to mess with settings. I've had plenty of issues with memory detecting on X58 boards, whether it be the EVGA Classified, DFI UT X58 or Foxconn Bloodrage. It's not related to any specific motherboards but rather the CPU is picky about RAM settings. Actual DIMM slots on a board rarely go bad.

I understand what you are saying and appreciate your help. What i am confused is how set up works for a while and the decides to stop working. I can understand if the system would not detect ram from beginning but that is not the case here frown.gif

Odd, i could have sworn that all 3 rams stick were detected.

If you've set the settings to default and run the ram at stock you should see all the dims in the POST screen. That is the RAM amount in MB or KB during start up. After which all should be visible in the OS. If you can't get the RAM to show up during post then you may have a bad DIMM or slot. If you can get them in the BIOS or POST but not the OS then you've likely got an issue with the settings. I've done the memtest thing before on a lot of RAM and finding errors is usually pretty easy if you have the patience. If you can rule out bad RAM and slots then you only have settings to blame. At which point you can google for guides. Starting with hardware rule out all the possibilities. You aren't overclocking and your CPU voltage QPI and DRAM should all be within allowed specs by default. I haven't actually read most of this thread. I just jumped on it with the ref cycle tip because you sounded like you were having the same troubles I had last year. Sorry if I'm repeating someone elses suggestions.

Thanks for reply, i can't get board to post when ram in proper slots for trip channel. They show up fine when are in single channel.

sounds like uhave to do the "ram dance" to find out which part of your hardware is fail. You will need memtest x86 or x86+ if you are using 4GB sticks or greater.It takes about half an hour to an hour and a half to run one test I think? I can't remember how long it takes exactly and I usually run it through twice each stick.

First # your RAM Sticks 1-3 and start off with the slot closest to your CPU and use one stick at a time booting into memtest .
Once you've gone through the test with each stick in the first slot move on to each additional slot.
You don't have to test each stick more than once after the first slot if they've all passed memtest.
Simply take one of the known working sticks and try it in each of the remaining slots one at a time.

If you get done testing all of the RAM and slots as I've described and there is no error in memtest yet then test the remaining RAM sticks in the last five slots each individually. If you still haven't found the problem then you probably don't have a hardware issue. At least not one that is within my scope of troubleshooting. I have suffered from an over tightened heatsink before so it is another true possibility. You will likely find that you either have a bad RAM module or slot during the process. It may take a days worth of memtest but ASUS can't argue with memtest results especially if you can prove that each stick of RAM passes memtest in certain slots but not others.
