    That makes me feel a lot better.

    You might be able to lower the timings on the trident z kit, you could try 15-15-15-35 - 2T timings,

    that's really good news dannyboy292, glad you got it sorted out.
    usually most of us don't suspect the cpu while having such issues.
    but it seems one should always keep all possibilities in mind.

    Couple of weeks ago, my computer had a strange crash.
    Black screen, reset button not working, then I did 5 seconds shut down and it just refused to power on again but black screen. Only clear-bios worked. PS: I do not overclock CPU.
    I doubt the fault is on CPU in my case. BTW, my ram is Corsair 2x8G 2400MHz kit. I don't think it is the ram cause the issue, either.
    I had experienced multiple crashes and reboot issue before that. Tried boosted vccio, cpu agent voltage, memory voltage, and also tried lower ram to 1866MHz. Those methods just delay the time to crash, but none of them really fixes the issue.

    After that, I re-configured the ram slot, to force it to run under single channel. I was surprised that it's much stabler. It can run under 2400MHz XMP profile without touch any voltage. It has been running like that for couple of weeks 24/7 without a crash.


    I am really tired of this kind of crash. My another Haswell rig never has this crash issue. If the crash happens again, I am going to just replace the motherboard with another brand.

    To share my recent personal experience:

    Do not buy Corsair memory for Asus Z170 series motherboards.

    You cannot trust Corsair's 'memory finder' tool.
    It will suggest that e.g. the Vengeance LTX modules are suited for the Z170 Pro Gaming.
    But, relying on that I purchased those, and they give bluescreens, and lots of errors in MemTest.
    (Asus Z170 Pro Gaming, Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15)

    When contacted, Corsair's support didn't confirm any issues (while the internet has lots of complaints), and just said: "ask your supplier for a replacement".
    That's almost certainly a useless advice, and a waste of my time and effort.

    Because, doing some more investigation myself, I found out there are several 'revisions' of these modules.
    Some will work, some will not.
    Corsair makes no differentiation for them, and what is worse, they will not help you if you get a version that does not work.
    It's your problem now.

    So, my personal experience and advice: stay away from Corsair memory for Asus Z170 motherboards.
