The memory you're using isn't on the Motherboard's QVL. You can't expect support from ASUS. You're better off returning the Corsair, and buying something that ASUS has verified to be compatible. Sorry mate, we all make mistakes.

Thankyou for comment, Asus is certainly the least helpful, have resolved problem!!
The general wisdom said look for a 'bent'pin on cpu, I looked and found with the aid of magnifyer and extra hands spot 1 xsingle pin bent flat, very hard to see. We all try to be careful but after a wasted week trying all and every suggestion you cannot beat 'care' at all times.
Thanks once again,
