    Problem with Maximus Hero VIII and memory...won't boot

    Hi All,

    I added Corsair CMK32GX4M2D3200C16 Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) kit to my Hero VIII mobo in slots A2 & A4 a short while ago and configured the BIOS to run it at 3200Mhz but she wouldn't boot up. I then read in the Hero VIII manual that the voltage should be 1.35v not 1.20v so I tried that. Same problem. I'm new to OC so basically haven't a clue what settings I need to put in the BIOS for her to successfully boot.

    Can anyone help?

    Yes. XMP was selected. All I did after it didn't boot the first time is scrolled down and changed the memory voltage from 1.20 to 1.35. Other than that I have no clue what else to try so any help really appreciated.

    Have you tried using the B slots for the RAM modules? For 2 sticks I believe you should be using slots B1 and B2 [the slots are gray, not black, if i recall]. Also for 32 GB it might've been better to use 4 X 8GB sticks so all 4 slots are occupied due to ASUS topology [all wiring from the RAM slots to the CPU are the same length to avoid timing issues caused by wiring of different lengths, because of the extremely high RAM clock speed of modern RAM/CPU etc.].
