          I saved-up for a long time to build myself a TOP of the line X-79/3960x based extreme machine. I bought the BEST cpu, mb, hdd, video card, 3D monitor and PCIe-SSD. And then to max out with 64Gb of ram I had to buy brand-x discount memory. I spent a full week trying to get my dream machine to boot-up. Then I found the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool that guaranteed-compatibility. After installing the recommended memory my system booted up just like it should. Now I'm screaming with my computer, not at it.
