XMP Profile on Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Hoping the OC.net experts can help me out on this one,

Just finished building a new rig,

CPU – i7 6700k
RAM – GSKILL Trident Z 3200 x 32GB (F4-3200C16Q-32GTZ)
MB – Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7
Video – EVGA GTX 1080 Founders edition
PSU – Corsair HX850i

I'm having issues getting an OC to work with the XMP profile on the RAM, I can OC the CPU fine to 4.6ghz boots fine, games fine etc. However when i set the XMP to profile 1 (3200mhz) it just wont boot at all. Just keeps rebooting then eventually goes back to BIOS Screen saying there was an issue. I've confirmed the timings are all correct and have updated the BIOS to the latest version. I tried turning off the CPU OC and just doing the RAM only but same issue.

I don't have much experience with OCing RAM, but i think it might be the BIOS not allocating the power correctly? Has anyone else had this issue or can anyone shed some light on what voltages I need to manually change, seeing as the Auto ones don't work.

MB also comes with some Gigabyte software for easy tune, i haven't used it, just did all the updates in the BIOS but will post some pictures of current voltages below:

Have you tried putting the ram timings and ram clock manually in the BIOS? These are two 16GB 3200 MHz G.Skill DDR4 sticks correct?

Nah mate, they are 4x8GB sticks, i did try setting the timings manually and clock as well but wont get past post.

Check what for voltages the auto setting gives your RAM and check the rated voltage for that speed on the manufactor site of the RAM.(As you checked everything else.)
If it is lower then you should manually set it.
If it's not then it looks like you'll have to find the next best timings and speed manually because of incompatibility is my best guess.

The auto settings are the exact same as what GSKILL site specify, http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c16q-32gtz

Auto is setting the timing to: 16-16-16-36-2N and the voltage to 1.35v

In your mobo's supported memory list i don't see your RAM set as supported.
That alone could cause the problem.

Edit:
16-18-18-38-2N

These are the timings of a supported G.skill set with the same speed and voltage.
Try it out.

I'll give that a crack, the supported lists the F4-3200C16Q-16GTZ as being supported which is essentially the same just 16GB instead of 32GB.

On the Memory site it has this motherboard as supported under the QVL tab. You might be right though ill try manually set the timing to 16-18-18-38-2N and report back.

Yeah i hope it works.
I did see that one but those are 4gb modules instead of 8gb modules like you have.
That is why i chose the timings of the other set as seeing that one had 8gb modules aswell.

No good man, I can see the logic behind your thinking but yeah didn't work still won't boot. I would have thought its something to do with the voltages rather than the timings if anything...

Too bad.
There is not much i can think of now then to play around with voltages, timings and/or speed.
I hope somebody else will chime in aswell because i wouldn't know what more you can do after this.

Those timings were looser so equals less voltages needed to run compared to the tighter timings you had before.
