    Is the boot option going to be ported to x299 dark at some point?

    Thanks

    That blue font is not showing up well with the grey background, that I see in my browser.  So I quoted that part of the OP to see if it is more readable .... with the lighter grey background ... bingo

    Does this BIOS also contain "Above 4G Decoding" and "MSR Lock" items that are now supported for the X299 series?

    Updated to BIOS v1.05.
     
    One RAM slot doesn't seem to work - sticks tested individually all work but 6 DIMMs populated show 80GB instead of 96GB. DIMM4 seems to be the culprit.
     
    Tried reseating the RAM several times as well as the CPU to no avail.
     
    EDIT: Definitely seems to be a faulty motherboard - tried a completely different RAM kit from my other system and DIMM4 simply won't see the RAM in that slot.
