    Its interesting to see that on the original QVL for this motherboard it does verify that it supports 4 DIMMS in Dual Channel only:
    "• 4 DIMMs: Supports 4 modules inserted into both the blue and black slots as two pairs of Dual-channel memory configuration"

    I would be interested to know if anyone running 6/8 DIMMS has had any problems with Quad Channel as the same QVL suggests it DOES support 6/8 DIMMS in Quad Channel:
    "• 6 DIMMs: Supports six (6) modules inserted into A1, B1, B2, C1, D1 and D2 slots that operates in a Quad-channel memory configurations.
    • 8 DIMMs: Supports eight (8) modules inserted into all the slots as fully-loaded Quad-channel memory configurations."

    The last three or four BIOS revisions have meant when using for sticks of RAM in the quad channel slots (A1, B1, C1 and D1) my system refuses to post when I enable XMP.

    I wonder if this issue is the cause. I am gonna try using the four left hand DIMM slots when I get home with XMP to see if it resolves the issue.

    So strange. I've also been having weird complete system lock-ups which I thought might've been my GPU as they have been so intermittent but wonder if this issue is also the culprit!!!

    EDIT: Unfortunately this has not fixed the issue. I still get Memory Detect Error's when trying to use the latest BIOS. Back to 2002.

    Hopefully, at least moving the RAM sticks will prevent further lock-ups.
