Re: Maximus III Gene Unknown Hardware Failure?
That's strange for that to happen after working fine upon first install and now you're not able to even complete a reinstall. Can you try to install the OS again using just 1 stick in the 1st DIMM bank? If you still get issues, try with just 1 stick again but try in the 2nd DIMM bank. Also, like Reggie suggested, if you're not having any luck with the memory running at 1600Mhz, try letting it default to 1333Mhz or if you've tried that you can manually set the memory speed to 1066Mhz and see if you're able to install.
