    ASUS X99-Pro Ram HELP


    I've just tried to upgrade my machine with extra 32Gb Ram, but the doesn't seem to work together with the 16Gb I have alredeady
    installed. I'm using the same type of blocks from same manufacturer. The "only" difference is that, my 16Gb (4x4) is SR and my
    32 (4x8) is DR.

    I've tried to run the machine with the 32Gb alone and it runs smooth, but when I plugin the 16, I get error 53 on my motherboard
    (Memory initialization error. Invalid memory type or incompatible memory speed.)

    Has anyone encountered this problem or anything similar. Please help.

    My original setup is as follows:

    773377 Corsair CX 750M, 750W PSU

    822371 Intel Core i7-5820K, Socket-LGA2011-3

    6-Core,3.3GHz,15MB,140W,22nm,28 PCIe

    It's that you are attempting to run multiple kits of memory, which while usually doable (i haven't got a unified kit in my current tower) it does cause issues like this at times. I would suggest just using the 32 GB kit, as it's more than enough for pretty much every application. Give the pair of 8 GB kits to someone in need, or put them into other towers. It's what i do with legacy parts. Hope i'm wrong, and that someone has a better answer. Good luck on getting it to work
