That is exactly what I thought when I was re-posted. I noticed the difference in the date. Don't have the old file for comparison purposes...I just know that there were RAID issues with the original and a few other issues.

Also found this using the search thread feature..searched " ram issues"
In that situation Bios update to latest Rev. worked:)

Hey! Im using BIOS v.1206 and the model numer is CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 or do you mean the numer for each individual stick?
if so its
723940
723971
723972
723973

Im not sure about the 40 but i think that is right. I havent tried each individually but in pairs so there should not be something wrong with a stick

Ok... ram issues have been sovled in the past by flashing to the latest bios found here 1403 is what you want. try that
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/SABERTOOTH_Z77/

using USB bios flashback is probably the easiest way that i have ever seen 2-43 of the manual.. And dont forget to rename the .CAP file to Z77ST.CAP You can do the actual flash while system is off..so power down

okey so I did flash to the new bios, I booted up with all bricks, the MemOK! blinked and the "starting windows" loading screen came up, it bluescreened and I tried some other times, I think I saw something like "0x0000007E" (dont know about the amount of "0") so I took out the two I added and replaced them with the ones that have worked for a while and it bluescreened! I was very confused, I replaced them and now the computer work as before with two Dimms, also the computer refuses to autoboot on my ssd so I manually have to go in the bios to boot on it!

I would try re seating the cpu and if that doesnt work the cpu itself could have a faulty mem controller or the board itself is at fault.. somebody has a guide to what blue screen numbers actually mean i cant remember where though.. that would help

That's kinda scary but I will try if I cant get it to work, also my sound wont work after the update, it says it has a driverproblem, exactly what happened to my networkcard, I had to reinstall windows to fix it... this computer is really driving me crazy... only brings problems.

guys have also had success with older bios revisions as well so dont count them out you could try 1015 or 1304 and i know this sounds like a bummer but reading through this thread can yield some results as well..It takes awhile but you can sometimes catch a guy that has had your exact problems.
