4 should work fine but who knows if there is one bad module or one or two that are not seated correctly.

Sounds like you have expert support coming over so you should be set ;)

Woke up today with a bit of a sore throat and slight cough.  Did you still want me to come by or see if I get better by the weekend?

Doing some reading and my RAM issue might be BIOS related. I'm gonna flash it tonight and see what happens

How you feeling Mel? Still up for the weekend?

So if I put two sticks of RAM in it works but if I put all four in it doesn't, I'm starting to think this is a motherboard hardware issue

Here's a link to the manual, I have the 16 GB kit installed in the A2 and B2 slots as shown in the diagram in section 1.2.4, when I try putting in the other kit the mobo won't pass the RAM check

Kinda frustrating...

Do BOTH kits work when populated ONLY in A2 and B2 if you swap both out?

Are both KITS exactly the same?

I can be a MHz speed or CL issue.  I've seen that before where the faster ram should down clock to the other ram, but not always.  Its actually not a good practice to mix MHz or CLs in RAM, for a few reasons.  This could be the problem.  We'll look tomorrow when I come by :D.
