Not entirely sure, but it wouldn't boot up with the TridentZ. So I looked into it and the only thing I could find was in the manual for the motherboard there is a list of qualified vendors where it lists which RAM sticks it supports for each speed, and the TridentZ wasn't listed. If you are interested you can go here (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1151/MAXIMUS_VIII_HERO/E10343_MAXIMUS_VIII_HERO_UM_WEB.pdf) and look down to page 1-13 I believe.
I didn't think it was a joke. I'll have to see if I can use the lower slot, thanks.
I noticed that, but wasn't really sure what to think about it because this is my first build. I just did some researching online, it looks like people have used fishing line, legos, etc.. to hold it up. Would you suggest anything specific to fix the sag?
