MoBo: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600 (4 sticks) [Bought 2 8GB kits]
Just to be sure it is being recognized, hit ctrl+alt+del button, next hit taskmanager.
Click on the performance tab and view what windows 8.1 sees in memory.
If it only sees 8gb and so does the bios itself the memory might be...
Unseatted or 4 sticks of memory on that motherboard isn't working right.
Reminds me of the problem I had with my socket 370. 478, lga 775 and lga 1156 builds.
Sometimes multiple pair of ram sticks isn't a good thing if I were you I ship it back and get 2 pairs of 8gb at the same speed and voltages.
Least that will prevent that problem from happening again.
