Yep, tested at 3200Mhz XMP, still having errors at the same test.
2133Mhz is the only freq where there are no errors.
I'm starting to get burned out with this problem. The only way I've survived with AMD in the past 5 months was on 2133Mhz and I was quite happy that it was stable. All has changed with F10d F10 bios that started adding BSOD's on 2133Mhz aswel.
Seems like the first thing to do is to RMA the RAM, then if the new ones are OK, then RMA the MB, then the CPU .... It is wearing me out
Since you are getting errors with memtest86 can you test only 1 stick at a time? usually its only 1 stick that is physically defective. Save you screen shots of errors as you will need them for the RMA process. Also to rule out motherboard test single stick in different slots.
But yeah definitely start the RMA process on that RAM kit. Running @ 2133 is not a viable solution since it seems problem has gotten worse and it should work at rated speed without any errors period.
I had a RAM kit I bought for my brother and it took several weeks to track it down as it did not show memtest86 errors but only error-ed out during AIDA64 stress test when XMP was enabled. Turned out 1 stick crapped out once the voltage went above 1.3. Only took a couple weeks to get new kit and it works as expected.
When you go to RMA though, only mention it throwing errors with stock XMP. Otherwise they may try to blame your overclock. But at the XMP settings it should work without any errors in memtest86 (tests for hardware defects)
The memtest hcl I mentioned along with another user tests for timings stability and is a great tool to ensure any memory overclock is 100% stable. It also isn't a bad idea to test default xmp settings over night on a known good kit that passes memtest86 to ensure you do not need to adjust any voltages (ie SOC, etc)
