    Jack about QVL lists, this is from Tradesman on GSkill forums who builds a lot professionally and is in contact with several board companies. First there are 1000's of different RAMs on the market, no company can or is willing to test them all.

    To get RAM on the QVL list they will put in a set at random, if it boots at default board settings, it's qualified. So if they test 2400MHz ram and "test" it, that is only running at 1600 or even 1333 at default, depending on the series of CPU. For Intel 7x series chipset and Ivy Bridge and Z8X Haswell too, the default is 1600, I'm unsure of the AMD.

    If this is your sets of TridentX, the X79 Sabertooth isn't on G.Skill's QVL, they do do some extensive tests.
    TridentX - F3-2400C10D-16GTX - G.SKILL DDR3 Memory

    Since you got your stuff through a middleman of sorts, can't he get a refund or a replacement for you?

    Gary, No X79 boards are on G Skill's QVL. They may not have tested it with that chipset. They run fine on Paul's X79 board.

    Thanks Steve, Paul has 16GB if his specs are current, and Jack has 32GGB.

    Hmm... I've never checked any board or memory vendor for compatibility with each other. I just assumed that if they were name brand, they ran with each other.... even if not listed.

    Don't forget, a lot of boards and memory have been around so you can pretty much bet they're compatible. At least that's my reasoning.

    On the flipside I've been using Gigabyte MB's and Corsair memory for the last 4 years so...

    True Drew, most any high quality RAM will work well with most any mid to high end board, not counting ECC RAM.

    Gary, my point was really that his supplier said that ram won't run on the board. They do. Even with Jack, half of it runs fine. It isn't recognizing the other half. His supplier is wrong, it will run 2400 MHz ram. Paul runs it on an X79 board. Even if his supplier was right, run it at 1600 MHz and it should run fine, it won't. The problem is the board not the ram.

    @Jack. To find out for sure, take the ram out of the slots the board does recognize and only leave the ram in the slots it won't recognize. That removes from the equation that you are overwhelming the memory controller. If it still won't boot, I think it shows, those slots are bad. If it won't boot, take the ram from the bad slots and put them in the good slots, the exact same sticks. If it boots, that's pretty much proof the slots are bad, not an issue with the ram.

    Agree on the ECC RAM, that's where you have to be careful. However who's really using ECC RAM nowadays

    People with dedicated servers, or mission critical needs, like a hospital, use it a lot, not us crazy normal people.

    Well us enthusiasts will have no such thing! If it isn't performance driven, we don't want it
