Hello everyone.
How's everyone doing?

System: Intel i7 6700k
Asus Maximus VIII Hero (mobo)
Corsair LPX Vengeance 3200 mhz DDR-4 (8x4) 32Gb (Ram)
Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming
Samsung 860 Evo 512x2 (SSD)

I use my system for gaming and rendering (3d) and now 32gb of ram seems too low for me. When rendering it fills up quickly and I need more. So i was thinking of selling my current ram and getting (16x4) 64gb of it with the same speed (3200mhz).
Even though it says

"4 x DIMM, Max. 64GB, DDR4 3800(O.C.)/3733(O.C.)/3600(O.C.)/3500(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/3400(O.C.)/3333(O.C.)/3300(O.C.)/3200(O.C.)/3000(O.C.)/2800(O.C.)/2666(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2133 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
Dual Channel Memory Architecture
Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
  • Hyper DIMM support is subject to the physical characteristics of individual CPUs.
  • Refer to www.asus.com for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendors Lists). "
on the mother page but i read on a couple of sites that 64gb ram gives compatibility issues.
Does any of you guys know if it'll work fine or can give issues?
I will also be upgrading my GPU to the new Nvidia's rtx 3070 this year (if it releases) or to at least RTX 2080ti and Samsungs 970 evoplus m.2 2tb ssd.

I'll really appreciate the help, Thanks.

You shouldn't have any issues.
If you do end up having issues, make sure to update to the latest bios.

If there are enough reports of 64gb not working right, and they are recent and new reports rather than old reports from years ago, then perhaps make sure the exact memory kit you want to buy is on the QVL
