I'll try it soon as I get home, will need to switch back the CPU.

1 x Seagate IronWolf NAS HDD 10TB - backup for RAID0 and system plus data
ZOTAC 1080 AMP! Extreme - H2O - first PCIe slot
Tomorrow I will install another new clean W10 and see if this is more stable. I have installed already lot's of my daily used software.
Does the CPU / ICH setting in bios also changes the behavior of the onboard M.2 socket?
If you are referring to the DIMM.2 setting for PCH/CPU source setting it is only for that slot and does not affect the PCI or the PCH locked M.2 under the plastic armor slot AFAIK. I have not used that onboard M.2 slot at all though so there may be issues with it but I can't tell you until I have tested it.
Use the G.Skill modules to test with but run it at 2133 which is the optimized setting. Have you cleared CMOS and/or refreshed the BIOS? Maybe try out BIOS2. I have seen multiple CMOS corruption on this board, it was self inflicted off course during some overclocking testing
One thing also, make sure you have the right intel turbo boost max technology driver not sure if it's related in your case but good to take that out of the list of variables. When you extract the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 Driver V184.108.40.2062 for Windows 10 64-bit. it may/does come with 32/64bit versions. I think the one that windows tries to install is problamatic.
