I wanted to get more bang for my bucks, so I did a computer build.  Parts used were; GIGABYTE GA-H170-D3HP Motherboard, Intel Core i7 Skylake Processor, Samsung SSD 850 EVO, Corsair 750W Power Supply, and the Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) Memory.  I’m having an issue with the DDR4 memory, when I install all 4 memory modules, the computer will not boot up, it only cycles on and off, with no indication on the monitor.  It seems to only work with 2 memory modules (16GB) installed.

Is there any tweaking I need to do with the BIOS in order to get 64GB of system memory?

Did you check the memory support list:

I'm not sure, but you can try to lower memory speed in BIOS.

Memory support lists are useless.

 

You can try if 3 sticks configuration work. Also did you try different sticks together? So that every stick work on 2 stick configuration. If not, then one stick may be broken.

I agree. Maybe you have a faulty memory stick. Just start with 3 sticks and keep replacing one with another until you find the bad one. Your motherboard supports up to 64gb of DDR4 so your good. You shouldn't have do anything in the bios.

It does make a difference which OS it is, and,

 

@Buzytee, have you tried putting 2 sticks in the same channel then adding one to the other channel?, i had the same issue with my server machine, is the RAM 2Rx8 or 1RX8? and if the RAM is all the same clock speed like Drillingmachine had said, you could have a faulty stick of ram.
