The ram works fine, tried it in other pcs, also tried other ram in my kit.. but still get the dram light.. im quessing the mobo doesnt function properly or the cpu isnt supported by default... but a bios update via de ROG connect port didnt work either.
I have (2) sets of Flash Drives, one for installing the OS and one for just BIOS. Reformat the Flash Drive FAT32 with no partitions. You must extract and rename the ROM file to --- R4F.ROM --- only the White USB 2.0 port works.
per ASUS Note:
Do not unplug the portable storage device, power the system down, or press the CLR_CMOS button while BIOS updating is ongoing, or the update will be interrupted. In case of interruption, follow the recommended procedures again to complete the BIOS update.
If the light flashes for five seconds and turns stable, USB BIOS Flashback is not operating properly. This may be caused by improper installation of the portable storage device, an error in the file name, or incompatibility in file formats. If this is the case, restart the system until the light clears, and check the file name and format.
BIOS updates may affect a PC in various ways. Should any issues with the BIOS arise as a result or your system is unable to boot, please contact your local ASUS support center for further assistance.
OK, I found a solution. I have read many times that it would be a problem of bios. Many guys have made a bios update, and have no more trouble.
After several trials, I succesfully boot the mobo with only 1 then 2 Dram. as I put 3 or the 4 Dram, I had automatically the AF debug code, and no boot.
But it was still unable to install windows, as it crashed few minutes (3 or 4) after booting.
THEN...desperated, I tried a last time to use the white USB port, to flash the bios by using the rog connect button. (I had already tried this 12 or 15 times unsuccesfully...as nothing happened !!!) AND, I really dont know why, this last time, it started blinking and made the bios update. Now, I have tried 5 or 6 boot, all passed !
It seems really that the ASUS rampage formula 4 has a trouble using a i7-3820. It needs a bios update to be OK...
