With usb, i don't have issues (i use all usb ports).
Do you have these problems also with 2600 mhz?
Perhaps you can try to use only 16 gb ram.
I will sell two of the modules.
Edit: Have you changed bclk?
If i set something above 100 Mhz, i get problems with my HDDSs. A few of them won't show up in BIOS.
At 2666MHz the kit works fine....16GB RAM is no-go for me since I do need more RAM to do my projects. Also running the latest BIOS; tried both RAM kits on my Z370/9700K Intel system and all kits run fine at XMP, without the need of any extra adjustments.
