    Default Cant Get 16GB RAM to run on Z68-UD4 Board

    So i just built my first computer and i am having a problem. I designed my rig to run 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 Ram (4 Sticks of 4GB). Right now i am only able to run the computer on 12GB of RAM. Whenever i put the fourth stick in the computer will go to the blue screen and crash. I have tried it with every combination of the 4 sticks and it only messes up when i have all 4 in. There doesnt seem to be one bad stick. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What is the error of the bsod? You can look in the link in my sig for the error codes and their correction. Most likely you need to adjust qpi/vtt votlage. Can you please post your current bios settings.
