I think the Asus rog extreme board will have it but $400+!!

All Z170 boards, without a PLX chip (which is usually on 300+ USD boards), will be limited to x8. x8. However you don't need x16 as current video cards cannot saturate a x8 bus anyway. Even the dual GPU cards are fine with an x8.

All,
I have recently purchased a Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P motherboard, Intel Core i7 6700 (not the "K" version) and 32 GB of HyperX Fury (HX246C15FBK4/32).
Any two RAM modules work fine in any two memory slots, but 3 or 4 simply errors out the MB. Does anybody have any idea why? RAM's is 2666 MHz, which is supported by the MB and is approved by Gigabyte. Is it 'cause the CPU?
Does anyone use the same MB with 32 GB?
Thanks.

I did my GA-Z170X-UD5 upgrade today, and everything went pretty well. I didn't figure out how the case header block was supposed to work until I'd already inserted all the jumpers manually, but the board was fine to work with installation-wise. It's not a terribly flashy product, but you can hardly see it under the 970s and ginormous Noctua cooler. (A snef build, this is not.) All 8 of my SATA drives connected without a hitch, but getting back to either M.2 slot when adding an NVMe SSD in the future is going to be a pain.

One thing I'll mention is that the XMP memory setting seems like a work in progress. My QVL Corsair 3000 sticks ran fine at their rated speed with the shipping F2 BIOS, but upgrading to F3 broke that. Whether XMP or manual, the same setting would cause a POST failure and BIOS reset. Manual 2666 seems to be working. Hopefully this is something they'll iron out in future updates.

Did you tried to flash bios with lastest version ? ( see first post )

just remove gpu when installing m.2 ssd and that's it smile.gif 2 minutes of job biggrin.gif

for ram.. did you updated bios with lastest version ?

Hi, could you try and let me know if you can underclock your i7-6700K with that H170 chipset, in theory it shouldn't since it is an H170, but I've been told that you can underclock regardless of chipset, can you confirm that to me? thank you.
post #157 of 1703
I solved it! Hurray!
I updated the BIOS to F3 and set the memory speed multiplier to 21.33 (which is 2133 MHz). And voilá, I have 32 Gigs of memory. Although it is now slower than the capacity of the RAM itself, but works.
It seems to be working fine with 2 RAMs @2666, but not with more. I reckon it is because of the CPU. I have checked and it is supporting RAM DDR4 up to 64 GB at 2133 MHz. So Either I change the CPU (which I won't) or make a deal with the retailer to exchange the bloody expensive DDR4 / 2666 modules to the native 2133 version. (and save $35)
Or I simply leave as it is. It's already paid anyways. biggrin.gif

Well, 2 GPUs, so 4 minutes. smile.gif Tempted to try a HHHL adapter card in the last PCIe slot for better thermals anyway.

I didn't want to run a beta BIOS, but I gave version F4b a try and that seems to work.

Corsair Link is showing me five different concurrent temperature readings coming from "Gigabyte Motherboard" (a UD5). There's a fair bit of variance between them (27.8-45 degrees Celsius), so I'm interested in knowing where exactly on the board the readings are being taken. The PCH and maybe the CPU reading are guessable, but I don't know about the other 3. The manual only talks about CPU/System/Chipset temperature without going into any detail. Is there any reference for where they're located or way to physically identify them?
