Asus Z170 WS won't boot with Ballistix Sport LT 64GB Kit (16GBx4) DDR4 2400

Wouldn't boot with all four sticks intalled. Tried every combination of two sticks then just single sticks, nothing.

I grabbed the cheappest 4GB of DDR4 of of amazon and it boots up.

What's the odds that I've got 4 bad sticks?

Is there some capatablity thing I've overlooked?

 

Thanks

Ok, I found a solution.

It seems like a bit of pseudoscience, but it worked some how.

I found it in an Amazon Q&A on a different set of RAM.

 

 move my cheap 4GB stick to the second slot.

Reboot

Replace 4GB stick in Second slot with 16 GB Stick

Reboot  (aside I tryed just puting all four of my 16gb sticks in slot two earlier and it didn't work)

Put a second 16GB stick in slot 1 

Reboot

Put the remaining two 16GB sticks in

Reboot

 

64GB up and running
