yea, but 4ghz vs 3ghz per core/thread. It doesn't even have the i7-6900k to refrence from.... i say its rigged.

Either that or the previous version has been mega inflating scores. Validating in the new version wont even show scores right now anyway.

If I do 0003 can go back to 1002?

That is cruel, now you are making me really think, lol. And I would save $160.00 by getting 16 GB of 4266 MHz (F4-4266C19D-16GTZSW) over getting 32 GB of 3600MHz (F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR). I do have some trepidation how it might boot up on this motherboard with DRAM so far above anything it is anticipating.

A few tips for people with G.Skill RGB RAM for now:

  1. If you can afford to, stop using the G.Skill LEDs altogether, it's the only way to be sure you aren't going to corrupt your SPD;
  2. If you can't just stop using it, don't have the G.Skill software running with any monitoring software. CPU-Z or HWInfo are going to conflict with it and corrupt your SPD;
  3. If it's already too late, your memory is still mostly fine. You just can't use D.O.C.P. anymore in the BIOS. Trying to use the D.O.C.P. settings with corrupted SPD may cause your vDDR to be set to any arbitrary number, if that happens, it may permanently disable your memory and possibly damage the motherboard (and CPU?).

Yea, as much as I love making my rig look like a nuclear reactor with 4 sticks of the RGB, I don't want to get a new kit just to have it get the SPD's corrupted.

Yeah, but your board will continue to start with a base clock of 90 MHz until another bios that puts it back to 100 by flashing the Embedded Controller again becomes available..

The pre BIOS 90 MHz is for helping attain high RAM frequencies during training.

Perhaps that updated version the developer gave someone here might work better.

Is the version 10.1.0.0 Build 0424?

No, its 10.0.0.2 build 0413 Your one is not yet available for download.

Hi mate,
Thanks for the feedback! I have just made some fixes again and the new version 10.1.0.0 should work fine now. Here is the download link for you http://softnology.biz/files/thpspbp101000424.zip

I posted the G.Skill Trident RGB corrupt SPD issue we have been discussing to the G.Skill forum, you owners having issues might want to chime in:

Well FFS, I just ordered this Ram and should have it Wednesday... I'm hoping this can be resolved with a bios update, the ram looks so cool in all the videos I've seen where it is used and I would love very much to keep it. redface.gif

Which kit specifically did you buy?

I bought this one.
