Hey guys, I'm trying to get the above memory to run on an Asus Maximus Formula (bios 0903). I would like to get all four sticks running but I need to get two of them stable first.
Problem with two sticks is application hangs, slow response, games quiting to the desktop or freezing up and such. With four sticks I can install windows but trying to install windows updates is tough with lots of them failing to install (haven't gone further than this with 8GB).

The timings picked up by the board with everything on Auto are(in bios);
Primary: 5-5-5-15-3-52-6-3
CAS: 5
RAS to CAS: 5
RAS Precharge: 5
RAS Active Time: 15
RAS to RAS: 3
Row Refresh Cycle Time: 52
Write Recovery Time: 6
Read to Precharge Time: 3

Secondary: 8-3-5-4-6-4-6
Read to Write (S/D): 8
Write to Read (S): 3
Write to Read (D): 5
Read to Read (S): 4
Read to Read (D): 6
Write to Write (S): 4
Write to Write (D): 6

Also I have no idea about Static Read Control, Ai Clock Twister, and Transaction Booster but they are all on Auto. I've tried voltages from Auto all the way to 2.1v

Thanks for any help.

Thanks, I found out that it was a couple of bad sticks. I got them replaced and is well at 425x8. Wish I could OC the board a little more (like my older P35) but it runs hot hot hot :)
