    Maximus VII Hero BSOD only when using 32GB RAM / RipjawsZ / i7-4770K Quad-Core

    Hi Guys,

    If I use just 3 sticks (8gb each) so 24 I got no problem at all.

    If I use the fourth to hit 32gb BSOD.

    I've tried exchanging the 4 dims and all of them seems to be fine.
    Also, I've used the 4 memory slots.

    The issue happens only when trying to boot with 32GB

    [RipjawsZ] F3-14900CL10Q-32GBZL
    DDR3-1866 (PC3-14900)
    32GB (8GBx4)
    1.5 Volt

    Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor (3.5 GHz, 8 MB Cache, Intel HD graphics, BX80646I74770K)

    Welcome to the forum!

    Have you run memtest on each stick individually?
    You may need to up the CPU Vcore and/or memory voltage to accommodate 32GB with all dimms populated.

    Hey Roger ans welcome also.

    If your dim is in the same slot everytime the problem happens and near a standoff screw

    it maybe a short between mobo and the case standoff.

    This problem does not often but it does. Use a piece of Electrical tape or anti static wrapper between mobo and standoff

    My brother in law had this problem and used a piece anti static bag (single layer,full length of mobo)

    and problem eliminated
