This thread is NOT for fixing M.2 issues. bitcoin has to open an own thread for that.

Edit: Further post by sambou has been deleted. bitcoin stick to your own thread.

Okay...

1. This thread is about issues between GSkill memory and MSI motherboard. And it has nothing to do with any other component.
2. If you continue to overuse the report function, we will not ask once again to stop it. You will be banned.

Hi, this are my full specs:

Mobo: Z170A Krait Gaming ( MS-7984 ) Motherboard
RAM:  F4-3600C17D-16GVK DDR4 16GB 3600MHz (2x 8GB) PC4-28800 RipjawsV G.Skill
CPU: i7-6700k 4Ghz, 8 MB Cache LGA 1151
GPU: MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8GB
CPU cooler: CPU MasterAir Maker 8 CoolerMaster
Power Supply:  750W 80+ Bronze Full Modular Seasonic
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 bits

I have this RAM model F4-3600C17-8GVK (2 x 8 GBs ) G. Skill Ripjaw V my motherboard is a Z170A Krait Gaming ( MS 7984 ). Installed on the 1st slot ( closer to the cpu ) and in the third slot.

The problem is I can't make XMP work, I'm using the default profile and my computer crashes all the time.

My RAM is only working at 2.133 Mhz and with XMP it should be on 3600 Mhz. On the MSI site I see that this memory could not be supported at this speed.

How can I manually set the timers for 3400 Mhz? This speed is supported with this same type of memory.

Any other ideas are welcome

Hey guys I'm having problems with my G.Skill RAM and enabling XMP on my MSI Z170A Gaming M7 (Model #: F4-4000C19D-16GTZKW)

Full Specs:
Intel i7 6700k @ 4.4Ghz
Noctua NH-D15
G.Skill 4000Mhz 16GB (CL19-21-21-41)
MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB
Windows 10 Pro
Seasonic PRIME 850W

If I set XMP 2.0 to on it won't boot and will say overclock failed.  Manually configuring doesn't change the error.  Can only boot with Memory Try It! set to Samsung 3433Mhz and HCI memtest will run w/o errors.  Is it RMA time for the RAM?

Must use a memory kit on the QVL list of either MSI or G.Skill in order to operate at the rated specifications. If not, XMP may not work properly but you will need to reduce DRAM frequency (with XMP enabled) until the system can boot properly. This can give you a base point of what the combination can run at.

G.Skill QVL list can be found on the specs page for each product:

http://gskill.com/en/product/f4-4000c19d-16gtzkw

Or you can search with your motherboard model for a complete list of memory kits fully certified for your motherboard:

http://www.gskill.com/en/configurator

Especially for high frequency kits, you must follow QVL lists. BIOS must be designed specifically for the memory kit to operate at such high frequency. Not any motherboard can reach extreme frequencies with any memory kit. If a motherboard is rated for a certain frequency, it doesn't mean any memory kit will simply run at that frequency. Only specific memory kits that have been certified on that motherboard will be fully capable and that is what is reflected on the QVL lists by manufacturers. If you have issues with a certified combination, feel free to PM or post a new thread and we will be glad to help reach maximum performance. Even if you don't and just need help or have any questions, don't hesitate to shoot over an email for assistance.

Hey johnstse12, did you ever get any help with your issue?
What version of the bios are you running, did this issue start after upgrading bios to 1.H?
I ask because I am having issues after upgrading my Z170A M7 bios. The systems boots after enabling XMP but if I try to get into the bios it hangs up and I have to manually reboot.
I  also have G.Skill memory but it's  Trident Z F4-3200C16D-16GTZ
I reset the bios and I can get back in but the system will hang again if I enable XMP. I have a post active but wanted to see how you made out.
Let me know
Thanks

UnCaged,

Don't use XMP because you are attempting 2 kits of RAM together.

Manually input DRAM Frequency, timings, and Voltage. It may be easier to start from a lower frequency like 2800, then work your way up. You will need to note VCCIO and VCCSA values at the lower frequency, then add more Voltage to scale up. Hopefully the two kits can run together, and at 3200. Right now that is questionable since the two kits have not been tested and guaranteed to work together.

Keep us posted!

I am using g.skill ddr4 3600mhz but can only run at 3200. 

When running at 3600mhz with x.m.p i get blue screens and "kernel" issues every hour or trying to play any game. If i keep it at 3200 it works flawlessly.  In the bios the auto inputed speeds and voltage are correct. Any help would be great thanks!

Hi!
I´m looking for help to get my DDR3 at "standard" speed - 2133MHz @ 1.65V. I only get 1866MHz, without Boot errors.
Could you help, please?

I have the rig in signature.

My mems:
Gskill Ripjaws Z 2133MHz


Thank you.

Best regards.

Intel does not guarantee anything above DDR3-1600 (or DDR3-1866 for a few models).

And finally, statistically (synthetic benchmarks, apps and games) speaking:
from DDR3-1333 to 1600: 4-5% boost
from DDR3-1600 to 1866: 2-3% boost
from DDR3-1866 to 2133: 1-2% boost
from DDR3-2133 to 2400: less than 1% boost plus all kind of stability issues.

The bottom line: 32GB DDR3-2400 is a waste of money for nothing but troubles.
 :beerchug:

This is extremely interesting. I have the z87-g45 motherboard with an i7-4770k CPU @ 3.50 GHz. I use this for audio editing and processing, not gaming. I have nothing overclocked. I had 2 sticks of G.Skill DDR3-2400 (16 GB total) and never had any issues. I added 2 more of the same sticks, and although I had no problems for a few months, I started getting intermittent freezes and shut-downs. When trying to power up, it would go into an infinite boot loop, not even making it to POST. After taking the RAM sticks out and reseating them it would start up every time and would go several weeks before the problem would return. Recently the problem became much more frequent, and started occurring several times a day. At that point I took it into a local repair shop and they said my CPU was running hot because the thermal paste was dried up. After that was fixed, I ran perfectly for about 2 days and the problem came back. So today I took out the extra 2 RAM sticks and left the original 2 in to see if It eliminates my issue. Based on this post that I quoted here, I probably should not have the DDR3-2400 sticks but the DDR3-1600 sticks instead if I want to max out my RAM at 32 GB. Does my problem sound like anything that type of G.skill RAM would cause or am I crazy?

Having overclocked RAM stresses out the IMC. Have more than 1 DIMM per channel stresses out the IMC. So its definitely possible that DDR3-2400 and 4 DIMMs (2 per channel) is not stable with your IMC.

Thanks so much for the fast reply. I am somewhat stupid when it comes to computer hardware. The guy that built the pc for me already had the DDR3-2400 RAM in there. I ignorantly assumed that I needed to order exact matches when I wanted to double the RAM. I am going to see if my problems stay away with only the 2 sticks in there. If that proves to be the case, I will replace it all with DDR3-1600. Thanks again, and to all in the States happy Memorial Day!

It is enough. There is no GSkill specific issue. If someone wants/can help you he/she will. No need to spread your issue across various threads.

CPU: core i7-7700k

board: MSI Z270 PC MATE, firmware 7A72v15

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 K2 3000 C15 16GVGB




The problem is I can't make XMP work, I'm using the default profile and my computer crashes all the time.
Manually configuring doesn't change the error. Memory does not work on one frequency at a voltage of 1.35 volts.
My RAM is only working at 2.133 Mhz and with XMP it should be on 3000 Mhz.
The memory included in G.Skill QVL list for Z270 PC MATE.

Please help in solving this problem.

ps1967--

Which slots do you have the RAM installed in? They should be in the second and fourth slots away from the CPU.

Test one stick at a time to see if both perform the same.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi,
I've been having a series of unrelated unfortunate events with my PC recently and i think it's caused by the memory/motherboard I've got
i have G.skill ripjaws 4 DDR4 2x8(16GB) https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3000c15d-16grbb
and MSI z170a Xpower Gaming Titanium edition
now ,the rams are installed on DIMMs 2 and 4 and had XMP ON

just now my PC was on ,left it for a moment and came back noticing that the screen isn't receiving any data and the motherboard debug LEDss are on 55,06,00 and keeps looping

powering down/up doesn't help as it still giving me no POST and debug LEDs are on the same numbers
so i tried removing the ram on DIMM 4 and i got booted normally (noticed XMP is off)  ,then I've tried to set the settings as the OP said to 1600 Mhz ,T2 ,9,9,9,24
but when trying to change the tRAS to 24 it sets itself to auto ,so I've left the BIOS completely without changes

then I've tried to put the second ram stick back to DIMM 4 ,and i'm booted normally again!

so for now i think it'll live and i'll keep XMP off for now ,but for the sake of not having any sudden freezes , what should i do?

also recently I've had my whole PC freeze when i connect a peripheral into the motherboard's I/O back panel USBs ,it started happening recently occurred for about 3~4 times ,also when it does literally the whole machine freezes even the automatically changing RGB lighting on my graphics card freezes , i'm not sure if it's related or not but it might be

Yes, the memory is compatible. Check to see if you have the latest BIOS.

Hello guys

I've been having a lot of trouble with my z270 Gaming m7 seven and my G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32GB (F4-3200C16D-32GVK),  I'm constantly getting BSODs and from the looks of it, looks like it is the RAM. I already asked the question here https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=293360.0, but I'd like to know if maybe I'm missing some configuration (I'm new to all this).

So if anyone can offer any help, it'll be great.
Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I'm having some issues with my GSKILL ram as well. Everything seems to be working fine, except that the total amount of memory doesn't add up. Instead of 64GB it lists 48 GB (49152MB) in both the BIOS and Windows 7.

The cards are working (leds light up on the board), are in the right slots, and are visibly working in the bios when I look them up. Both with board explorer and in advanced settings.

Tried changing the timings as instructed, albeit to DDR4, but that mostly gets me errors where I have to change back to defaults. Tried a few different frequencies as well.

Frequency is on auto now, which sets it to 2133Mhz.
Timings we're already set to Link with following settings:

tCL: 15
tRCD: 15
tRP: 15
tRas: 36
(tried 16,18,18,38, too, as per the Gskill website, with frequency to 2133Mhz)

Using: G.Skill Ripjaws V 64GB DDR4-3200Mhz 64GB DDR4 3200MHz
Motherboard: MSI X299 SLI PLUS
Processor: Intel Core i7 7820X
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 WINDFORCE OC
BIOS: 15, latest version, update didn't help.

Any ideas of what timings I should use/try? A bit new to manual settings, so not sure what I'm doing either.
Many thanks in advance!

All best,
Maarten

Tried some more settings. Some prevent me from booting, after which I have to clear/flash the CMOS, others make no changes. (I did see the Memory Size change from 49152MB to something like 40960MB. But that's back to normal now.)

Extreme Memory Profile (XMP): enabled
Sets it to 15-15-15-35 1.350V (Same as the Gskill website, correction on previous post.)
DRAM Frequency: DDR4-3200 (24x100.00x1.33) (Tried with SPD speed of DDR4-2133 (16x100.00x1.33), too.)
Memory Try it !: DDR4-3200 CL14
DRAM Timing mode: Link
And then the same settings: CM 2, then 15-15-15-35

Setting XMP enabled, but the rest on auto, doesn't seem to work.

Another update. Downloaded CPU-Z, and it does seem to see 64GB, even see's 4 slots filled. But on slot one, it doesn't have a Manufacturer or Part number, while the other three do. Could there be a deffect in it still? It does recognize module size and max. bandwith.

Best, Maarten

Had 1 of a pair of 4GB G.SKILL sticks that I bought a year ago for my 2011 board, sticks manufactured Dec 2016, suddenly go bad on me, while my 2011 sticks are still functioning.  No manual memory overclocking.  RMA'd and came back fairly quick. (Acceptance of my request email went to my spam though.)  Replacements seem to be working fine.  I've forgotten to look at the manufacturing date though, but I did notice that there is another number, in addition to the serial number on the sticker now, that wasn't on my 2016 or 2011 sticks.  This does seem to me like a new set (and that they aren't messing with me), but I don't feel like taking them out and looking at the manufacture date.

So far so good.  Just odd that it was just 1 stick that went bad after 1 year, while my 6+ year old sticks are fine.  At least it wasn't a slot that went bad.

Folks,
        I just assembled a new system with a MSI motherboard and GSkill memory. Specs below
MSI Tomahawk AC Motherboard
GSKILL TridentZ DDR4 memory model F4-3200C16Q-32GTZB - 4 channel kit 4 x 8GB
SAMSUNG M.2 SSD 
MSI Radeon RX570 Video card

The issue i am having is that when the memory is placed into the 4 channel configuration it sees all the memory sticks in the bios but reports only 24GB usable. - uses slots a1,b1,c1,d1,
I moved the memory around to the different slots and no luck then i changed the configuration to the 2 channel configuration to test the memory and the board sees all the memory sticks and registers the full 32GB.  uses slots c1,c2,d1,d2
I have updated the Bios to the latest version 
Changed the memory configuration from auto to manual and set the correct speed at 3200mhz and it populates the timings and voltage and they are at 16-18-18-38 and it shows 1.35v
I have clear the CMOS completely and still no luck. 
Can anyone think of anything i have missed that i could look at to see if i can resolve the issue. 

If any other information is required please let me know
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

My setup:
X79A-GD65 8D (Bios v1.8)
i7-3930k
Gskillz 4x 4GB (F3-12800CL8Q-16GBZH)

The story:
Oh man, it's a long story. I'll try to keep this short. Back in 2011/2012, I had issues with this board because I initially had a i7-3820. Eventually was able to get the BIOS to a version needed for the chip. Also had some PSU issues. Fast forward to about 2015 or early 2016 - I was doing a 'maintenance day', and updated just about everything that I could on my system (drivers, etc). Also went to flash bios, and boom - bricked. Lucky that the board has a dual-bios. However, 2nd bios never was updated. Had to RMA board to MSI. Tried to see if they could fix BIOS #1, but that was basically a "nope". So they flashed BIOS #2 to v1.8. When I got the board back I also upgraded my CPU to the I7-3930k. Everything posted - except for the memory. At the time (and I didn't have a lot of time to mess around with it) I could only get the system to post with 1 dimm. About a week ago, I started using the system more frequently and 4GB just doesn't cut it. So again, went into maintenance mode and started getting a number of things checked off from my to-do list. The above post seems to have done some help, but I'm still coming up a bit short.

The issue:
At time of writing, I have 3 of the 4 dimms installed - giving me 12GB: currently seated in slots 1, 5, and 7. If I add the fourth dimm to slot 3 and power on, I get a debug code of b7 or it could be a 67. I've seen on this forum among other places that this appears to be related to a mem training issue. Should be noted that when I had the 3820 installed, I was able to get 16GB. I may have changed some BIOS back then (again, 2012-ish) to get that to work, but I honestly can't remember. Ultimately would love to be running at 16GB. I've swapped the dimms around to make sure I didn't have a bad stick; and as far as I can tell - I don't. Oddly, the way I got 12GB to work was as follows:

Installed to:
Slots 1 and 3 - result b7
Slots 1 and 5 - posted
Slots 1 and 7 - posted
Slots 1, 5, and 7 - posted
Slots 1, 3, 5, 7 - b7
... started getting creative
1, 2, 3, 4 - b0 / 60
1, 5, 6, 7 - b0 / 60
...
eventually was just ok with running on 12GB until I find a solid fix.

Using this post, I did change the values as described in the OC Settings. I actually dropped my numbers down to 8, 8, 8, 24 - which seems to be running just fine. I've also gone back and forth between enabling XMP - but doesn't appear to have an effect.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. As you can imagine, I'm a bit hesitant to flash bios again... otherwise I'd be completely out of a board

[Edit: I also noticed that the voltage was just under 1.5 for both channels a and b. I believe I've manually set these for all DDR channels to 1.55... now I can't remember if my 12GB was able to post before making that change or not]
