Well, this thread was originally asking about the status of the Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4, not specifically about memory over clocking.  What help did that person receive, did they get their memory working at 3200, or what?

Then the question was, will the X370 K4 receive 3200+ memory support. Regardless of the memory model, as long as it is rated at least to 3200, it will work at 3200? How can we know if that is possible, given all the variables involved? Memory over clocks are guaranteed? We both know they aren't.

After two AGESA updates, my G.SKILL FlareX 3200 memory can only run stable at 2933 on my X370 Killer SLI/ac board. I'm at the point where I'm trying different ODT values that I found others using, but that is only valid for my model of memory.

We have no idea what the OP has tried to do at this point about his memory OC, or how high he is at now. If it was simple to do, and guaranteed, we would describe how to do it. We can find his general model number in the Rymem list, but the maximum speed is ~2933, but we don't know if he has the 539 version.

Bought this board unknowingly in late August. It died with a broken chipset, and then I found out about this EOL. Asked Asrock about this issue, been more than a week but have not gotten a reply. Extremely disappointed that such a 'great' reviewed board is apparently a 'broken' board.

A similarly spec, exact same look, exact same price(in my region) Gaming X just popped out of no where? My dealer doesn't even know of this board. Is this the replacement? Are the owners of K4 getting further support? If so until when?

Admins, please give us an answer... Thanks!

EOL simply means they are no longer in production but support will continue, just like any other board.

At this time, x370 K4's owners have received the latest UEFI updates as others boards, sometimes even faster than the not "eol" ones, so support is ok as mentioned earlier.

If we will receive future Ryzen+ AM4 compatibility, I don't know tough, and have my doubts.

Anyway, IMHO, if you are in the market for a replacement, will be wise to just choose another board despite for me it is an excellent mobo.

Gamming X is not a same as K4.
X - more cheap.
May be more cheap even that killer sli.

Yes, for me the Taichi is the one to get from Asrock in the x370 lineup. It's more expensive, yes, but it's also better.

The Taichi gets my vote too, I love mine. I also have a Gaming K4 and it does a great job too, it just doesn't have the overkill power design and is the wrong color scheme for my black, white and blue build. 

I keep having to explain this and wish ASRock had used a different term for the Gaming K4 other than EOL. OOP would have been better, out of production does not mean end of service and doesn't set everyone into panic mode that their shiny new board is fubar. The Gaming K4 will continue to receive all the same updates as the rest of the X370 product stack, I know because I asked, I have one myself. This all stems from confusion as the the meaning of EOL in this instance. As I said, poor choice of terms given with software EOL means end of support.
