sometime ago ive managed to wipe spd eeprom on one of mine ram in notebook
as i was trying to change something in my led panel (edid eeprom)
as both resided on 0x50 adress, just on different controller

well that ram was fixed later, i hooked that ram to dvi (yes video output xD) and reflashed it from its i2c controller

anyway..that spd should be readable , otherwise your pc wouldnt know what your ram got

did u guys enable i2c controllers in uefi?
as far as i know i2c can send write protect(on/off) on sda signal
and asrock seems to have bunch of i2c unnamed controllers to enable in uefi

Yes if its i2c it can can both r/w on the same line, I check now the DDR4 pinout and it has SCL on pin 118 and SDA on pin 238, after a bit of thinking my guess its the problem lies in the G/Skill memory, maybe the Ryzen memory controller assigns 2 different I2C addresses for the channels but the G-Skill module is expecting just one for all 4 sticks, regardless of channel. But this again is just a guess, I am no expert regarding this, what bugs me is not to inability for the utility to detect the modules in channel B and change colors, its the inability of the modules to work at the full speed in channel B, this should not happen at all, they should works in both channels at 3200MHz as the poster said

Not entirely sure how this would affect someone on the lga1151 equivalent of the gaming K6 board.

when using the aura software I can control the ram but not the addressable:(
