Price is less than 1/2 of what I paid a year ago so wanted to jump on it.

Thanks

It can add heat and reduce potential overclocking ability, as well as limit further upgrades without replacing some or all of the RAM, but other than those issues (which can be mitigated or looked past...) I'd say go for it. At worst you can return the RAM if it doesn't cooperate with your existing set.

Board is brand new (X99D U3.1)

Ram is about a year old, crucial ballistix 4x4

Original specs 2400 16-16-16-39 1.2, I run the ram at 2400 13-13-13-24 1.3.

I tried single sticks and the computer still won't clear B2

I will have an additional stick of 2x4G corsair lowprofile ddr4 tomorrow for testing. I will also test my current 4x4 crucial in a Z170 board


Very confusing that the manual doesn't clearly state what would cause a B2

Hello

Try a different CPU and graphics card. If neither allow the system to boot please investigate which of your components are killing the boards with the same B2 Q-Code before powering up the third board.

Don't have a 2nd cpu.

Have tried a GTX970G1(DP) and GT610(VGA) card on, makes no difference on the 1st board (X99D), will try if changing the gpus would clear B2 on 2nd board (X99X U3.1)

An IO resource conflict I thought, which can be a lot of things both internal and something you plug in.

I have

Samsung 850evo 1tb, wd 4tb, seagate 250gb, hgst 2tb, dell ch03n bd drive
Usb mouse g502, usb keyboard b540

Have tried to boot with all sata connection pulled, no difference

I try my 970G1 and GT610

Titan X = B2, blank output
970G1= B2, same issue
GT610 = 96 with vga led turned on (probably not UEFI compatible), no output

Hate to say it, but exchange the board. Unless you have another CPU to test it with, or can take it somewhere that has a test bench.

By the way, that thing where you're running memory at different timings, stop doing that while you're testing unless you already have.

Board is brand new from exchange

I can't even boot into bios to change the timings on the new one. The 13-13-13-24 is when the first motherboard (I am on my replacement) still works.

I understand what you're saying, but "brand new" doesn't mean it works. It just means its new in your hands.

UEFI secure boot is an open standard defined by the UEFI Forum, not by Microsoft.
