ASUS Z170 DELUXE slot/memory issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone.
I'm becoming crazy with this motherboard and need some hint about my issue.
History:
I've bought the MB with 2x8gb DDR modules by Kingston (HyperX Fury 3000Mhz) without checking the memory QVL or reading any thread about it.
The Motherboard had not boot (obviously) with Q-code 41. Asked to ASUS support for help and they simple replied me "DDR4 modules you are using is not in our QVL. Please check the motherboard with other compatible DDR4".
I've checked on the document and asked to Kingston Support, explaining my trouble, the possibility to change my modules with a compatible DDR4. They was so kind to accept my inquiry and give me 4x4gb HyperX predator 3000mhz included in ASUS Z170 QVL.

The mobo booted, catched xmp1 profile and I've installed win 10.
And was the start of my other trouble: BSOD all the time! Try here, try there, drivers and programs, at the and I've reached "CAN'T BE THE MEMORY!" Kingston told me to have tested the module before shipment.
Well, with MEMTEST86 I had over 400 memory errors.
I was starting to test all module and memory slots: at the end I've these result (started from XMP disabled):
  1. with 1 DDR4 no errors for all sticks tried in all slots;
  2. with 2 DDR4 (A2-B2 or A1-B1) no errors;
  3. with 3 DDR4 and test start from cold mb no errors only if the slot A2 is void;
  4. with 3 DDR4 and test start from "hot" mb whatever slot (or module) is engaged, get errors and errors,;
  5. with 4 DDR4, useless

BTW bios is the last 1602.
ASUS support told me "Is it impossible, If motherboard starts, there is not hardware issue..."

Anyone have any suggestion about tests or bios modify I can try?

I was have the same issue with same 4x4gb HyperX predator 3000mhz and fixed it by raising the DRAM Voltage to 1.4 not Auto you will find it under Ai Tweaker in UEFI BIOS

Same problem with my GSKILL Trident 3200. I only had to g to 1.36v from XMP default 1.35. What I do is just set it to the XMP profile and then move the voltage up one tick. To be fair though. I have to go even higher to overclock the CPU.

Thanx mates, but it didn't resolved that Issue.
I've rised DRAM voltage to 1.4v and both VCCIO and SA to 1.15v but... nothing happens.

Have you tried putting in the ram timings and ram voltage manually instead of using the X.M.P profiles?

No, never tried. Are you told me to disable XMP profile and copy and set the XMP values manually?

To run safe the PC I'm using only 2 dram now, but I need to know from owner of asus UEFI MB if the value in monitor (at side) is different from the setted value. Let me explain:
the screen capture is taken after reboot, no change was made, but the DRAM voltage set to 1,35v is different form the value monitored. Why?
