Looks like 2133 is as high as I can get with 32 GB. frown.gif

That's not surprising. I doubt there are many Sandy Bridge-E chips that can handle 4x8GB DIMMS at DDR3-2400.

[EDIT] It's hard to say what the issue is, your board or your CPU. I just put in my 32GB 2400C11 kit and it seems to work fine, but then again I have a Rampage IV Extreme and a 3820 with a strong memory controller (was able to boot with 4x4GB at 2600MHz).

The board might be fine. It's possible that the sticks or buses needed cleaning.

If I understand it correctly, those subsystems operate with built in redundancies and it may not be able to handle some faults on higher frequencies as easily.

It might not be accidental that it's an old tradition to blow some air on sticks before inserting them.
