Hello,

The specs for the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero Motherboard say it can accept a max of 64MB. But a friend's machine has 128MB installed and it registers in Windows 10 (I see 128MB in task manager/memory). They say the machine locks up every few weeks and they have to reboot. I looked in the event log and only see a generic message about a hardware failure.

Could too much RAM be the problem? I'm going to take half out to see if that helps, but I figured I would ask.

Thanks!

It supports 128GB of ram.
If it couldnt handle 128gb, then Asus would say so.
Your friend probably has a different problem.

Thanks for the response. On their website they say a max of 64, so that's why I was concerned (https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-crosshair/rog-crosshair-vii-hero-model/spec):

But it sounds like probably this isn't the issue anyway.
