Hello,

I just upgraded my RAM from 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 at 1866MHZ to 64GB (4 x 16GB) DDR3 at 1866MHZ, and now my PC keeps rebooting. After turning on the power, fans spin up, lights turn on (monitor does not display anything) for about 10 seconds, then powers down for about 3 seconds, then repeats. The mother board has 8 slots available for RAM, and for the upgrade, replaced the 4 existing sticks with the new 4 sticks into the same slots. I unplugged the computer when installing the RAM each attempt. I've tried troubleshooting the new RAM by only installing 1 stick and only installing 2 sticks with the same rebooting result. Reinstalling the old RAM restores the computer to normal.

Here are my specs:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE X79-UP4
RAM: ADATA XPG V2 16GB 4 x 4GB DDR3 1866MHZ being upgraded to NEMIX RAM 64GB 4x16GB DDR3-1866 PC3-14900 2Rx4 ECC Registered Memory
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 XTREME Gaming Video Card (GV-N1070XTREME-8GD)

CPU: INTEL I7-4820K 3.7 GHZ 10M LGA2011
PSU: CORSAIR CS650M 80PLUS 650W
OS: Windows 10, 64-bit

Any idea of what to try next?
