But when I run (an older version) of Prim95 my temps hit like 85. But NO graphics issues! biggrin.gif

I'm still getting the new RAM, it's clocked lower than 3200MHz, but I think it will be better, since I have seen MANY postings about corsair RAM not working correctly on many boards, Gigabyte and Asus included.

You continue to ignore what I say about the RAM. Yeah, there were initial issues when these boards were first released, but BIOS updates have solved most, especially RAM issues. I've said a number of times I have the same board as you, and am running higher speed RAM and have no issues.

As for VCCIO and VCCSA, don't know what that is or what it does, but I've not touched it, and still have no issues... even doing the test you wanted me to do. All you had to do was manually input timings, speed, and voltage. Nothing more, nothing less.

BTW be aware you are not require to run the RAM at 3200MHz, you could simply leave it at 2133MHz, and be fine like that. In short, just because you have high speed memory, doesn't mean you have to run it at that speed. Yeah you paid for the higher speed, but that's another story. I say that because I note you stated you you're getting G-Skill because "it's clocked lower than 3200MHz"

Anyway good luck, and glad I was able to help.

I'm not sure that I ignored what you said? I did exactly what you said, but still experienced that graphics issue. It was only until I adjusted VCCIO and VCCSA (it's for the integrated memory control, as well as the CPU in general), that the graphics issue has stopped, and I am running at 3200MHz. I understand that I can lower it, but why? I paid for 3200, but I supposed it wont matter if I am returning it and getting G Skill, which runs lower. I only purchased G Skill because it appears that maybe the BIOS with use the XMP Profile will properly work with that RAM as opposed to the Corsair that I have now which we know does not. I am unsure why yours works fine and mine doesn't... that's something that Gigabyte would have to troubleshoot (and probably wont).

What is it that I did not listen to you about? I believe I followed all of your directions perfectly, unless I'm missing something? I even printed them out and went to the BIOS right after... the 1.34 V def made a difference ... since before when I set it to auto (it wouldn't let me set it to 1.35V manually, only 1.36 or 1.34 (weird??) .. but like I said adjust VCCIO and VCCSA - it works now. Before, when set to Auto or 1.35(6?) VCCIO and VCCSA did not resolve this issue..

Please let me know if I didn't do something you recommended... I thought I did, and again appreciate the help.

I didn't mean to sound rough, I just needed you to recognize what I was saying, and that the issue may not be a "Corsair compatibility issue" but rather some bad modules. BTW you could've very well had bad modules from G-Skill. It happens.

I was also stating we have the same MB, and pretty much the same RAM, but I'm not having issues, while you are. Yeah, I'm not using the integrated GPU, while you are, but I did test for you and found nothing using the procedures I posted.

And the other point I was trying to make is don't get so caught up in the "Gigabyte noise" about RAM compatibility because BIOS updates and things change, and sometimes their listing isn't always up to date. In short only use the list as a reference, not a hard core fact.

Those were my points.

I have the same Corsair sticks in my Gaming G1. The only issues I've ever had are that some BIOS versions wouldn't detect the XMP settings. I have my main G-sync monitor on DP from my video card and a second monitor on HDMI out from the motherboard.

I should think that you should be able to run XMP profile with no issues if ALL other BIOS settings are reset to default with the latest non-beta BIOS. If you can't, you probably just received a quirky motherboard or memory. Next step is to try XMP with default settings on the latest beta BIOS. Then try new motherboard first, then if that does the same, try to warranty claim the memory. If you make any other changes, like CPU or other voltage/timing/clock increases, then all bets are off, of course.

Already getting New ram tomorrow and I'll see with beta bios. If that doesn't work, I already have rma with newegg for refund and I can get another New one. What do you mean all bets are off?

Memory sticks really should be tested and guaranteed to run at their XMP profile settings. If they don't, I'd expect a replacement or refund as well. But doing any overclocking of the motherboard, CPU or GPU beyond that is not guaranteed, so any other changes to voltages, timings or clock speeds could be the cause of the issue. In that case, the memory would not be the problem.

The first thing I did when I got the board, RAM, and CPU was test the RAM. The problem is.... memtest86 can only test with core 0 since even their beta does not function with all CPU Cores, and forget about memtest86+ - it doesn't even support ddr4... regardless - any memory test I run passed... I also heavily utilize the CPU almost 24/7 and no BSOD's etc. System has always been stable without overclocking RAM or CPU. The only thing I really wanted to do when I got the system was set XMP profile. That failed to work. It could be the RAM. It could be the board. Hell, it could even be the CPU.... but time will tell. I'm getting G.Skill RAM tomorrow and if XMP profile does not work with that with NO CPU overclocking of any kind, the next thing would be to RMA the motherboard, and finally, the CPU.

*UPDATE 7/19/16 *

I just put in some G.Skill DDR4-2800 F4-2800C14D-32GTZ 2 x16GB, same issue. Any suggestions? CPU problem?? Motherboard issue? Already tried 3 pairs of RAM - 2 Corsair and 1 G.Skill. Motherboard issue??

New Beta Bios F8o for the Gaming 7 posted over at tweaktown http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/28441-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios.html

EDIT:

Well this was a rather big change! It got the new design of the Z170X-Ultra Gaming and finally it has a smart fan controll inside the UEFI for those who never wanted to use the software smile.gif Couldn't find any changes besise those two things, but I made some screenshots:

Thanks for the info. I also see the Z170X Gaming GT also has a new beta BIOS. I'm curious, but I think I'll wait till it makes it to Gigabyte's official website before installing. Your screen shots does looking interesting though, especially the fan control.
