Hey Guys,

I'm kinda stuck and any input would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Asrock X299 Taichi motherboard that I purchased in early 2018. According to there manual it should support up to 256gb of ram. I recently purchased 128gbs of ram to add to the 4 empty slots, but they won't show up. (I current have 4x8gb G.skill 8gb installed) I even tried removing my current ram and just adding the 4 new sticks, but that just results in my computer not starting. This is the ram I purchased: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-128gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232992?Item=N82E16820232992

Any ideas of what's going on here? Maybe I need a Bois update? As a side note, has never been successful for me.

You think my CPU doesn't support that much RAM?
Intel does say your CPU is limited to 128GB -- https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/123767/intel-core-i7-7820x-x-series-processor-11m-cache-up-to-4-30-ghz.html

Which may mean 16GB per slot with 8 slots filled ...
