Are you using the correct banks for quad? If it's the same as my big bang you need slots 1, 3 , 5 & 7 for quad with 4 sticks, the manual will show which configurations will work.

That said x79 isn't a massive fan of vengeance...

Error Code 67 means the system is halting during memory training. This is often true with vengeance line of RAM on the complicated X79 quad channel format.

Have you tried booting with one stick setting up XMP then adding one stick at a time till you get quad channel.

That said Corsair Dominator or GSKILL RipjawZ are the most compatible on this platform.
