See, I haven't figured you out. Raja get's paid to do this as all he is is a marketing manager. Praz is a mod at the ROG forum but you.. what are you? You were just a user at least in the past, but all your posts indicate otherwise nowadays which is why I'm asking you this.

You say z68 like its a long time ago.

My reply regarding a memory issue was based on your post quoted below. Memory rated for 2666MHz should be plug n' play. That you need to increase voltages, especially memory voltage, is indicative of memory optimized for the X99 platform. A two part UEFI update requires that the board partially boots for the second part of the update. Instability at this point can lead to an update failure. If USB BIOS Flashback is needed in the future I would suggest the following:

Boot into the UEFI with a single memory module installed and load optimized defaults. Save, exit and during POST access the boot menu by pressing F8. Once at the boot menu remove power. Reconnect power and perform the USB BIOS Flashback.
Thanks. My modules are optimised for both x99 and z100 according to HyperX. Model: HyperX Fury X 2x8GB 2666 1.2v.

Fury is an older model. Their site only states that it's optimized for x99: http://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/memory/fury-ddr4 (under "Features")
Savage DDR4 is a new model and is optimized for z170 according to Kingston.

Check the data-sheet. Fury x is also optimised for z170. Actually, it was one of the first kits that were optimised for z170. Also, savage looks like rebranded Fury to me and it's also 1.35v. As far as I know z170 standard is 1.2v not 1.35v. You can tell they're also optimised for z170 as they're a kit of 2 not 4.

Kit of 2 or 4 does not decide if its optimized for Z170 or not.
There have always been Quad kits available even for Dual Channel platform.

Also I think the JEDEC standard for DDR4 has always been 1.2V even on X99, RAM manufacturers have decided to go a bit over. Like how the DDR3 JEDEC standard was 1.5V, but 1.65V kits were very common.

You're right but what I was trying to emphasise was that I've never seen z170 optimised quad kits. Frankly, I don't think there exists any.

My Fury DC kit is z170 optimised according to its data sheet and even if it wasn't that wouldn't really explain boot-loops/code 41's during and after BIOS updates as the z170 Deluxe's QVL is full of x99 optimised kits that are supposed to work just fine.

Hello

I've tested X99 kits on the Z170. Most have some type of issue including requiring more voltage, broken XMP or not clocking as high as when used on X99. Personally I'm not buying into the marketing hype.
