View Full Version : ROG Strix Z370-E POST issues

01-09-2018, 03:44 AM
I have a issue where if I put my Gskill DDR4 3200 16GB kit in ANY of the A channel slots. the system will not POST ( I will get a yellow light on the motherboard)

If I put one stick in A2. again, will not POST yellow light if I put one or both sticks in B1 or B2. the system will POST and will work just fine (that's how I'm typing this) I updated the BIOS to 0606 and no change

I really hope I don't have to RMA..for a third time (2 times with a different ASUS board a tuf Z370 plus gaming)

I have tried everything I can think of. manually entering in ram timings voltage etc and then moving the sticks back to A2+B2. no POST again. Cleared Cmos multiple times etc

-any things to try would be appreciated Thanks!

more rig info

Core i3 8350K

corsair 750W PSU

the Ram is on the QVL (F4-3200C16D-16GTZB)

I ran memtest 86 version 7.4 (with ram in B1 B2) and it passed 40 times over

I forgot to mention I have also tried that already..I even tried re-installing using the easy CPU tool thing (I'm not currently) I do not see bent CPU pins on the motherboard

Something like this has to be CPU or socket/cooler related.

Motherboard has been sent in for RMA so will see once I get that back.
