DZ77GA-70K and Corsair CMX32GX3M4A1600C11 / 32 GB Problem

Trying to set up a sys with 32GB RAM.

DZ77GA-70K works with only 2 (out of 4) 8 GB Corsair CMX32GX3M4A1600C11 modules of this set in DIMM 3 and 1.

With 3 or 4 modules POST stops at 21 or 41.

!! Bought these "pricy" modules because Intel references it as tested memory http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dz77ga-70K/sb/CS-033219.htm here. !!!

When setting the BIOS to "Automatic" it sets 1333 9-9-9 - works fine with 2 modules.

Setting BIOS to 1600 11-11-11-30 (Corsair specification) works fine only with 2 modules, too.

Setup

GAZ7711H.86A.0039.2012.0426.1522

CPU: I7-3770K, PS is a brand new Corsair AX750 Gold Plus.

Does anyone experienced the same problem? Any solutions?

Thx for help.

i just upgraded BIOS to version 0059.

it is still not working. i have checked all my RAM pieces and every single one is okay, so now it's either a failed BIOS or the two empty RAM slots were manufactured in some crappy way making them useless.

either way, nice going intel. i will NEVER buy any of your products again.

Any response or cure from Intel regarding this problem? I'm trying to get a DZ77GA-70K board set up w/ the i-3770k processor but having similar start up problems due to memory errors and 3 beeps (error code 41). I have 2 8gb Kingston 1600MHz sticks, they only seem to work in DIMM slots 2 and 4 (two farthest from CPU), and only able to run single channel. I tried each stick one at a time in each of the DIMM slots and only 2 and 4 are working. I have latest BIOS installed and have tested other BIOS numbers as well.

Natisfinest,

Have you tried doing this with Back-to-BIOS enabled? If this lets you get into BIOS Setup, try setting BIOS defaults then save and exit and try to boot normally...
