I have seen this happen before with previous BIOS from Asus on different intel MBs and it was them causing issues with their BIOS coding skills not the system.
This will be related to the post above from others stating that they're having issues with the IMC and PCH test failing with the Intel stability test as well just so people here know.
Mhm... first of all I wouldn't touch IBT with a barge pole for memory testing (or any other testing for that matter) on X99. I'd either install Linux Mint 18 and do "sudo apt install stressapptest", then "stressapptest -W -s 7200" and let that run for 2 hours (good gauge on stability overall), or let HCI memtest on Windows run up to 400%. Both of those are found in the thread relating to memory overclocking on the X99 platform in general: http://www.overclock.net/t/1569364/official-skylake-haswell-e-broadwell-e-24-7-ddr4-memory-stability-thread
I'd personally use Linux and stressapptest as it can usually find RAM errors quicker, and isolates the tested component to RAM itself (cache and core generally shouldn't affect stability with GSAT too much). Those two tools will allow you to tune your timings properly
. If a set of timings worked on a previous BIOS, but fail to register correctly on the latest BIOS, it usually is down to being on the edge of stability. Sure you've lost potential by having to drop the timings, but you also hopefully have gained stability as is usually in the changelog for the BIOS updates on ASUS' website.
The IMC and PCH test failures are nothing to worry about as long as the system is stable. That can be chalked down to incompatibility with the Intel software and how ASUS exposes certain parts of the CPU to the OS. If it works, it's fine. The IPDT doesn't even list the Haswell-E series as compatible on the download page anyway.IBT is not a memory testing tool.
