Whelp. My computer started refusing to post with more than 2 sticks of RAM after 6 months without issue. Posted on the MSI forums and Neogaf, but nobody seems to have a solution and it seems to have a fairly high incidience rate going by the Newegg reviews and a good number of threads about it.

Ran each stick through memtest86 and they all work fine. Boots in single channel, dual channel and some tri channel configs (Only 1,2,3 DIMM slots together) can't get it to post in any quad channel config though. I've also checked for bent pins on my 5820k, no bent pins.

Here's from my MSI thread

Ok so I tested each stick of RAM independently in the primary slot which posted every time. I confirmed on another computer as well that each stick of RAM is operational. I think proceeded to test different configurations making sure to wait a few minutes during each attempt to make sure it wasn't just impatience.

Is this a fairly common problem with this particular board? Has anyone found a solution? I've read from a few people that swapping to a different set of ram resolved their issues, but that's too small a sample size to gauge if even plausible and I haven't been able to get a response from if it worked in the long term. So I figured I try here, where there seems to be a lot of people with these boards.

Edit: I flashed the bios to 1C from 1.9 and it didn't fix the issue. Still can't use a quad channel setup anymore. Running in dual right now.

I seem to be having very similar issues right now with the Uncore.

I cannot get it to even 35x as is on my 5960X. Not sure what is happening there, but it is a bug that I will submit to MSI and see what they say. I tried pushing the Uncore to 1.2V, with no luck.

It looks like RAM overclocking is not as good on this BIOS either. I have struggled to get more than 2400 MHz on my 5960X, whereas the A.2 BIOS could do 2666 MHz easily. Not sure what is happening here; there seems to be a regression.

For now, it may be best to revert to the old BIOS.

You can change whenever you want or need to.

It can be useful for testing and debugging different BIOS settings or new BIOSes.

Keep in mind that the 8 saved profiles don't carry over, so you'll need to export to USB to send them to the other BIOS.

Well, don't have anything concrete to add other than real-world experience with my X99 SLI PLUS (had it for almost since X99 came out). A couple of days ago I was rendering some 3d model in keyshot at the same time using virtualbox with a linux instance. Computer hard froze and would not post. It was really warm in the room so I assumed it was mobo and went and got a new one, swapped it out and everything worked (except ASUS Deluxe II would only see 3 sticks.

Today I read your post and decided to see if the MSI was in fact bad, re-installed it and just used 2 sticks of my quad kit (crucial ballistix sport ddr4-2400 4x8). Everything is working fine again, although I have less memory.

Not sure if that helps or not, I am going to stick with 16GB RAM for awhile, I never need 32GB really.

Not sure if I can help you .. running a reasonably similar config (5820K/X99A Plus) to you but on BIOS 1.B0, but no issues. I recently went from GSkill 4x4Gb to Kingston 4x8Gb but still completely stable.
The only time my old 4x4 set didn't post was when I had painted the cooling fins and the connections were not entirely clean - just from handling it. I would try clean the DDR4 (connectors), reset the BIOS settings to default, set one BIOS to the version that you had when it did run fine (in that order). If it still fails, then it's likely to be the motherboard (and not bad contacts or a setting).
Edit: 1.C is also fine.

That does help guys. Still anecdotal but I'm seeing that kind of feedback enough to believe it's a very common issue. A MSI admin said this to me.

Personally, and I realize that this is me expressing my opinion, I think it's nothing but a BIOS problem. I cannot prove this simply because I don't have a motherboard and such from this series, but generally speaking, it just seems to be a complete issue with the motherboards BIOS. I've seen many users who have similar problems. System is working fine, sometimes for months or year, and then suddenly stops working like this. That kind of stuff doesn't just happen, especially at the BIOS. I've always believed the X99 bios's had issues, and that can somewhat be apparent when looking at all the threads that pop up regularly from user with those boards.
Again, please don't take this as meaning it's from MSI (cause it's not), it's merely me expressing my opinion on the situation.

The best thing I can really suggest to do is to contact MSI directly about the problem. >>How to contact MSI.<<

44TZL I tried 1.b and 1.c to no avail. I've heard similar things from other people switching out RAM and then having it work, apparently my Ram is compatible (It specifically says XMP 2 profile though) So I tried that and have faster ram but it didn't solve my issue unfortunately. I might try to change my ram, I mean at least I can run 2x8 GB sticks to get back to 16GB. I'm just worried about throwing money at a solution that may down the line prove to be an issue. If the board has a failure later, and I've just bought more ram to sidestep the problem instead of rectifying the problem I'm just out more and more money. I've never not been able to fix, or at least diagnose a problem myself before. But it's looking like I should just suck up my pride and at least take it to someone for testing. At the very least they can tell me if there's an actual physical problem with the board. Or if it's something else so I know exactly how to proceed.

I'm still on W7. I downloaded the nvme to a regular drive and installed windows and then just cloned the drive to the m.2. It was smooth sailing using Samsung cloning tool.

I am already running a few days with my new M.2 (see my signature). I had to set it to auto because if I set it to PCH it peaks at 800Mb/sec max. I installed the Samsung driver too but I think Win10 include the nvme driver so I will unistall it. I am hitting slightly above advertised speeds. The only think that got on my nerves is the msi bios. Whenever I change something it shuts down like I was playing with voltages (which I did not) and on reboot it says that the overclock failed. If I check my changes in bios they are left untouched, so hitting f10 again will eventually accept the changes and boot the machine

Hello All,
I recently just completed my new build and am using the X99a Gaming 7 Board

Build:
Case: Corsair 750D
CPU: i7 6850K currently OC to 4.4 at 1.36 Vcore
Cooling: Corsair H115i Extreme 280mm Top mounted with push/pull configuration
Mobo: MSI x99a Gaming 7
Ram: 64GB DDR4 Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000 8x8GB w/ Dominator Plat Cooling Fans
GPU: EVGA GTX 980 Ti FTW+ 2.0
PSU: EVGA Nova Gold 1000 G2
SSD: Samsung Evo 850 1TB for Op System and programs
Internal Storage: 2x 6TB WD Black, 2x 6TB WD Green, 1 2TB WD Black

First and foremost I want to say thank you for all your helpful information I have found here.

My question/dilemma that I haven't been able to find out is in reference to the acceptable voltages for OC this board and for the 6850K Broadwell-e chip. I know intel recommends staying below 1.35 Vcore but I have seen on the couple of review sites for this chip so far use more than that. I know it is a new chip so information is limited but I just want to know if my 1.36 Vcore in Adaptive mode is too much? I have more than adequate cooling. In a hot summer NYC apt During 12+ Hours of Prime95 my Cpu temp never goes above 70c same with Intel burn test, Occt, Rog, Aida64, etc. I also purchased the Intel over clocking warranty from Intel. Any info you guys could share would be greatly appreciated.

So I just updated my Motherboard BIOS, went out of the room, come back and my PC was completely off. When I turned it back on, it would not start up and kept power cycling. However when I then turned it off from the PSU and then turned it back on, it seems the Motherboard BIOS did update.

Anyone know what just happened
