I've struggled with my FTW Z370 to work with Corsair CMK16GX4M1B3000C15 x 2 (32Gb total) on 3000MHz with XMP , but had no luck. It just didn't work - Code C4 and not starting with two modules installed, only default 2666Mhz. So I got another board (GB aorus z390), installed my i78086k processor and added new 4x32Gb G.Skill RIPJAWS V [F4-3600C18D-64GVK] with no issues. It automatically started at 3600MHz speed and I forgot about problems.
Old FTW Z370 board was installed to old PC case with 2 existing CMK16GX4M1B3000C15 modules and added i3 9100 CPU, just to have a working computer.. I've always wondered if that board could work with 128Gb RAM.
Some day I was cleaning the internals from dust and decided to try 4x32Gb set of memory in FTW Z370 motherboard... And, I was shocked when it booted directly to windows
, no XMP profile applied automatically though.. I've restarted and booted in BIOS, changed memory profile to XMP 1 DDR-3600 18-22-22-42 -1.35V... and it booted to windows again )))
! FTW!!.. I've tried so many times to get Corsair memory to work on 3000MHz normally, but it always had some issues one or another (if I was to reset it with a button, after doing this I had to remove 1 ram stick to boot and set speed manually, reboot, turn off and then add second ram stick to then boot with both of them to windows).
My question is - is it a programming issue? BIOS issues? The only odd thing was that 128Gb RAM in FTW Z370 needed more time to boot (somewhat like 30 seconds, changing numbers on the post screen several times). https://dropmefiles.com/214173
(updated link) - here are some pictures of the system.
