" rel="nofollow - The G.Skill Fortis F4-2666C18D-16GFT, would you please look at both stickers on each stick to verify that is the correct P/N?


I know, I know. Humor me please on this.

NM. I just spoke to my man at G.Skill for clarification.

" rel="nofollow - re: G.Skill kit

Is this happening on a bare bones system, or instead SLI GPUs, multiple HDDs/SSDs, and any OC?



OhHoHHo back and forth calls between G.Skill and myself ............

The G.Skill F4-2666C18D-16GFT kit you have is Single Rank(SR) thus they belong in slots A2 and B2 to run at their rated 2666, 18-18-18-43 1T/N/CR @ 1.2v

Clear your BIOS EVERY time before moving different memory in and out, and even swapping the same sticks around on the board.

Keep me posted if you would please on this particular G.Skill kit.




Now, on to investigate the Corsair ............

" rel="nofollow - Are you OK with running BETA BIOSes?

I'm gonna pop yer Corsair Balloon here but Ryzen doesn't have dividers for 3000 and 3400.



BETA BIOS 1.63
http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/X370%20Killer%20SLIac/#BIOS

DOS Flashing instructions
http://www.asrock.com/support/BIOSIG.asp?cat=DOS8



Stay away from using the Windows flash method. With Windows involved there are too TOO many variables with Windows processes running while flashing that many times lead to a failed flash and bricked board.



Ryzen BIOSes are being released at a rapid pace to keep up with the ever growing lists of memory kits the memory manufacturers are producing to meet the specifics of Ryzen.

Looking at the BIOS releases for your board it really wouldn't surprise me to see a new Production BIOS in the coming days.









Wow! I borked that. Change "would surpris" to "wouldn't surprise"

" rel="nofollow - yeat it dosnt bother me really to load a beta bios as i have another x370 board. hmm what memory would you suggest ?  3200 or 2666 kit? and which brand? im ok with 2400 i guess fir now ...

If your computer is working with the Corsair atm, I'd wait for a new production BIOS to appear.

Then I'd see it that Corsair plays any nicer than it is now. But do keep in mind that Ryzen isn't aware of a 3000 divider. So go lower or higher if that kit allows using manually setting the kits timings.
