Thanks, guys for sharing I guess I should research more not just buying what I thought are the top of the line memory. My reasoning was if this work with 8 GB it will work with 16 GB.
From the corsair support, I got a quick and straight answer "It isn't compatible with your motherboard "Compatibility Intel 300 Series"
Looking into QVL it's another story, the list was last updated 2018/07/03 and doesn't even show Corsair CMD32GX4M4E4000C19 which I run on my board at 4133 MHz 19-23-23-45 with no problems.
It looks like they just make the list at the launch of the product and after the first year, the list is not getting updated anymore. Unfortunately, for the first users of some products, it becomes the technique “Buy and Try” and either it works or you waste money and learn something.
So at this point, I ran 64gb with 3467Mhz at 17-18-18-36 not as fast I was hoping but with a little better timing. I will try more settings but probably can’t get squeeze anything more and wondering if the 3600mhz or 3466Mhz module will run the same at half of the cost. Probably I should mention either one is not available to buy. The other option is to add Corsair CMD32GX4M4E4000C19 and only be able to run 64GB and lose the RGB but again the modules are hard to find and are not cheap either.
In future upgrades, I will start research more deeply, this is the second time I did the same research mistake with this system build, first was with ASUS Hyper M.2 x16 Card. After purchase the add card I learn that bifurcation is not an option on my motherboard, so I used four individual PCI-e slots to accomplish this configuration.
Then another surprise that only Intel drives (Not the fastest drives on the market) are supported for Vroc and able to boot the system. Then another surprise that Intel 760p is not good either but only professional drives 7600p, at the end, I found that if I want running any other RAID than RAID 0 you need Intel Key another expansive gadget I make the system run at (read 10360mb/s write 5516mb/s and waste a lot of cash.
