You mean your GSKill set wont work at their XMP rated speed? That is weird.
With my CPU and everything else at stock, memory will not operate at XMP levels without errors, no. Everything operates fine with XMP settings 99% of the time, including in games - and I am even able to get ridiculously tight timings stable with AIDA and RealBench. But, MemTest gives me failures unless I loosen timings to CL17. As I paid a butt load for the kit, G.Skill can afford to send me a replacement for me to test things out even if there is a slight chance I just have a really crappy IMC on my CPU. If the new kit doesn't work either, I'll assume it is the IMC. At that point, if my chip weren't stable for cache and core at such a low voltage, I would look into buying a new CPU, but since core performance is more beneficial than memory performance, it seems I should stick with the current CPU even if it turns out to have a pissy IMC. But, I will update to the new BIOS and test again to see if anything has improved in the off chance I can save everyone some time and don't need to do an RMA.
I may test out adaptive cache if I get the memory cooperating with my setup. (Adaptive cache technically works currently, but only at a very mild overclock and when using Intel's XTU.) It would be interesting if it does work now, though, as ASUS has said it is Intel's problem, so if Intel has had this fix released for a while then ASUS has just been lazy which is sad.Edited by stargate125645 - 7/28/16 at 9:40am
