    Was going to reply on Discord but can't post there for some reason...

    The kit in my specs has worked flawlessly on this board from day one...for example

    I have similar memory kit and I'm just wondering have you tried OC? Higher frequency or preloaded configs in bios for your kit?

    Asus customer value adding with ram information

    Note

    Samsung have ceased production of b-die modules

    I wish Asus would keep their memory compatibility up to date, surely a company of this size could do this

    I found the whole ram search very painful, Asus could add a lot of customer value here by doing a lot of the grunt work in regards to ram compatibility

    If your living outside of the US, the ram picking situation is very painful with limited suppliers

    I found it near impossible and in the end I relied on my local PC store to guarantee Corsair ram even though it was not on the compatibility list - it works but it is slower but I need 128gb so I accepted the slower ram and cheaper price

    Then you have conflicting information about whether or not the Zenith boards (I have the Alpha) supports 256gb or not with 32gb dims. Logged a ticket with Asus and got an fairly non definitive reply - so I played it safe and went back to 126gb

    So much more Asus could do around ram compatibility and keeping information updated for it's customers, especially since new ram is coming online and people are wondering if it will work or not (i.e g.skill's neo ram, does it work in Zenith/Zenith Alpha boards?)
