Also a BSOD on stock for Memory Management... I have done a Memtest and all.

Yes, with the F7g beta bios on the Z170X Gaming 7 board. Basically, it was defaulting to the secondary bios since the beta one is flaky.

But even with F7k and F6 and F5 it just defaults back.

Tried everything... To start my machine everyday I have to start the machine, hit the BSOD and force secondary BIOS by holding down power and reset. Sometimes that works, I normally end up flashing F6 BIOS on a daily basis, or whenever the machine is turned on from a cold boot.

I managed to fix my BSOD / memory related issues by switching the memory sticks to verified/working/new ones.

I'm doing the next best thing... RMA'ing the RAM and and Motherboard.

I would try different ram sticks first to see if that would resolve your issue.

I was going to RMA my motherboard almost definitely until I tried different ram sticks which turns out was the solution to my problem.
Good luck.

yes you're totally right and I've been in this situation however I was lucky enough to have my brother who is a big time gamer who happens to have the same processor/motherboard and managed to barrow his ram sticks to verify the issue.

instead of sending the motherboard for RMA, I would RMA the memory first and if the issue is still present I would then point fingers on the motherboard.
Goodluck

Anyone whos running a Samsung 950 pro in any of the gaming series motherboards, what slot did you put the M.2 in and why? I am trying to decide for keeping it cool vs what sata ports are disabled.

Evga 780 (waiting for pascal before upgrading this)

I'm wondering if anyone has had audio distortion issues with the built in sound blaster sound card on the motherboard? It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does(and it's loud, staticy and painful if you have headphones on), it seems a reboot is the only thing that fixes it. If seen mentions of this issue in the newegg reviews but no solutions.

Anyone?


Thanks,

Jon

Yes I and some others are having this issue

Are you running Windows 10?

Go into the properties for the Creative soundcard (in device manager I believe) and find the checkbox that says "Enable Audio Enhancements" .. uncheck that.

I'm testing to see if that fixes it
