    That's why i just hope installing the M.2 in at this point won't mess things up.

    I still have audio issues with the Asus drivers from their site.. sigh. I'm on BIOS 1402
    Hi , have you installed the "DRAMCACHE" SW ? try to disable if any help for the audio issue, seem work for my system.

    I do not have that installed. I literally have the bare bones of Windows OS as well as the hardware. I only have my SSD plugged in. That's it.

    My F4-3000C15D-16GVR kit is now running the first real memory overclock I've done in many years (yes I know that DDR4-3000 is overclocked, but this is beyond those specs). I'm starting slowly as I don't want to upset the balance I've achieved with my existing CPU and GPU overclocks. I've got it using the Samsung 2x8GB Double-Sided 3200 1.50v preset timings but running it at 1.35v. My 6600K CPU is at 4700MHz on 1.425v (yeah, I've got a crappy chip) with the Ring at 4500MHz. IO and SA are on Auto. My GTX 980 Ti is running at 1450MHz core and 7000MHz memory with just the 110% power target and no over-volting. I would go higher on the core and the memory can easily do 8000MHz, but I already hit the 110% ceiling at these settings in games.

    The system just got done passing an eight-hour run of ASUS RealBench testing 16GB. It had already passed a two-hour Prime95 v28.7 Small FFT run as well as a two-hour Blend run. It has also succeeded at a two-pass Windows memory diagnostic run, but I don't know how effective a tester that really is.

    After I get done downloading Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak, I'll be doing some real game testing with that and HomeWorld Remastered and probably some MechWarrior Online and TERA.

    Wish me luck! lol

    I'm going to copy my post from another thread here as it applies to this thread as much as the other.

    I'm running the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-2800 Quad Channel Kit. CMK16GX4M4A2800. This is on the QVL. Running XMP just fine. Not the tightest timings or fastest memory, but very stable. Perfect for the gaming rig I built for my son that needs to be super stable.

    FYI, I went with this memory because it was on the QVL and I needed a rock stable choice without much tweaking. If you study the QVL it appears 4GB modules do better (in either X2 or X4 configuration) than the 8GB modules. I originally had the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 CMK16GX4M2A2666 but swapped them before installation after seeing numerous complaints on the net that this kit was not playing nice with Z170 mobos.

    I think the QVL on the Z170 mobos might be a little more relevant than usual. As new memory comes out I think the QVL may be less important. But for now it seems some of the DDR4 kit that ran well on X99 may not automatically play well on Z170 (or better said on the Skylake IMC).

    CMK16GX4M4A2666C15 - not working fine; CMK16GX4M4A2400C14 - all is good

    I've had problems with Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black Series 4x4GB, 2666 MHz, 15 CL - CMK16GX4M4A2666C15 (not on compatibility list posted by Corsair, by the way)
    Now i have CMK16GX4M4A2400C14 (listed on corsair compatibility list) and all is good.

    Running 16GB (2x8) 3200MHz TridentZ [F4-3200C16D-16GTZ] at default XMP, and using the New Samsung Single-Side settings available in BIOS which puts it at 3200MHz 15-16-16-28 1.35V.

    Seems to work perfectly.
