    I have that ram in 3x4GB sticks. What are the recommended BIOS/EFI Configuration settings? I'm having problems booting Windows with 3 sticks (BIOS works). With just 2 in dual channel mode it's fine. When I put third stick there is BSOD shoortly after Windows logo before booting to OS. FYI, I just bought this motherboard few days ago. Before I had Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P and it was working fine with it, all 3 sticks. Can someone help? Thx

    Do you know if the error follows the stick? In other words, any two modules work fine, but adding a third causes a problem? Or is it when that third module is installed in any slot that there is a problem?

    Do you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

      Yes, it happens when I add this third stick, and also when I insert only this stick. Also, memtest freezes during the test when this stick is inserted, with other two it works fine. I assume the stick is faulty. Do I have to change some settings in the Bios for the two working sticks? Does this settings applies to me: http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=7688
      Thanks

        Sounds like an issue with the stick, send them in for RMA to see if a replacement works better:

          Yeah, the stick is not working, I removed it. And what about those settings in BIOS: http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=7688
          Should I apply this settings?

            Yes, if the RAM is good, but if the RAM is defective it will not help
