I have 2 sticks of Corsair Vengeance ((PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory SDRAM CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 ) installed in slots A1 & A2; but when I try adding 2 more sticks of the same - in B1/B2 the BIOS freezes at the ASUS splash screen. I updated the BIOS to the latest version, tried the MEM OK button on the board but that didn't help. I have seen that some people have gone in adjusted the RAM voltage. Any ideas would sure help...

your RAM is KIT sure adding RAM same as type/voltage with the first installed
This is the exact same KIT I bought and installed before - why wouldn't they work unless maybe one of the new sticks is defective? I went into the BIOS and the voltage was set to auto for all RAM. Not really working on it till after finals at school.
Thanks for your input.
