Anyone Running an R3E w/24g ram?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Wanted to know if any of you out there are running an Asus Rampage III Extreme with an i7-950 (or lower) and 24gb of Ram.

I ask because I'm having tons of problems trying to get this to work. I bought a 24g hexa-channel kit to go with my r3e and i7-950, and have extreme issues when all 24g are on the board.

It runs fine with 16gigs, but the second I put in the last 2 the computer becomes extremely laggy, cpu usage jumps up like crazy. I ordered a second hexa-channel kit from a different manufacturer (first was g.skill, second was patriot) to make sure it wasn't bad or incompatible ram, and the results are identical. lagtastic -_-

Someone's telling me that its because with 24g of Ram the address and data bus are too heavily loaded.

If what they say is true, how can I see all these other setups with 24g working just fine for everyone else?

Anyhow, if you have a rampage III Extreme, a i7-950, and 24g of ram, please let me know how that's workin out for you.

Alternatively, if you have any input on this, feel free to jump in.

**EDIT: Forgot to mention, no need to cover basics like setting timings / voltage as they were the first things I took care of.

Its defo supported by the mobo, and assuming you are on x64, the OS as well.
PSU?
bent socket pins?

Hey Antipesto93,

sorry, should have clarified. Running w7 ultimate x64. PSU is 1500w silverstone.

Haven't checked the socket pins yet, but if I may ask 2 questions for that one.

1. I had 12g OCZ ram in before (6x2g) which worked flawlessly. would I have had issues with the 12g as well if it were a matter of bent pins?

2. How do bent socket pins effect ram performance? (not arguing just trying to learn more)

All these enthusiasts here and not one person has the R3E with 24gb of Ram? how disconcerting..

Hi - just seen your post as I've just built a Rage 3 Extreme with 24g. It's only showing 16G - and when I run the Crucial memory scanner, it says that 2 of my slots are empty. (They're not!).

Did you get anywhere with your PC? Any advice?

thanks.
Chris.
