View Full Version : Strix Z390F won't accept 2x16GB RAM sticks?

I have a Strix Z390-F. I have 2 sticks of Corsair LPX 3200mhz RAM that run fine. But now I have 2 sticks of 16GB DDR4 (Skhynix unbranded) and no matter what I try, the board won't boot with 1 or both of these RAM sticks. The yellow RAM light stays on and I can not get to BIOS. I did reset BIOS settings to Auto, Manual, DDR 2133mhz, etc but no go.

Does this board support 16GB sticks? Is it possible then that this RAM (from a Dell XPS) just won't work in my Z390-F?

I have two Team Group 16gb memory modules in mine. Are your on the list of approved moduels? https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-z390-f-gaming-model/helpdesk_qvl

I got it working. Required CMOS jumper reset. They are unbranded sticks. All good!
