Pretty typical for all AMD chipsets. They don't like running high speeds in 4 slots. You can try bumping the NB and mem voltages a bit, and make absolutely sure that they're running 2t (most AMD chipsets seem to default to 1t, but the great majority of memory on the market is rated with 2t set).

I have 32GB in my Sabertooth and lazily I set the memory at 1800mhz for all four slots and its 100% stable. You might be able to sneak it up but I doubt you will get it running all four slots at 1866mhz. If its any consolation its almost no difference anyways.

I had a similar problem a couple of days back, were my RAM was causing my P.C. to blue screen. Asus Released a new bios update a couple of weeks back fixing some stability problems that might also fix your problem. Find the latest Bios update here: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0

Have you tried 1333mhz and 1600mhz just to see if it will POST at those speeds?

I have read/heard that the asus amd boards can be VERY finicky with ram. And i've heard all possible speed/amount combinations work on some boards for folks but others not at all.

USUALY the 4x4 setups all speeds work well .... for shure @ 1600 they do as thats what mine can do now vs couldnt do on my 1090t.

Thought thinking of it, I think sky even mentioned about him having a hard time to run anything over 1866.
