    Went with F4-3400C16Q-64GTZ

    For what it's worth, I went with the F4-3400C16Q-64GTZ -- and just ordered it today -- after some false-starts and difficulties overclocking (mostly with XMP) the Corsairs 2x16GBs. At least the G.Skill F4-3400C16Q-64GTZ (4 x 16 Gb) are rated from the Maximus VIII Hero Memory Report dated 4/12/2016.

    I'm really hoping for just plug-and-play DDR4-3400 at this stage, given that I am meeting or exceeding all of the other recommended specs to handle this volume.

    Up the voltage to 1.40v if the initial XMP profile attempt doesn't work.
    I had to settle at 1.38v to get my 3200 G.Skill set completely stable.

    As a side note, adjusting the SA and VCCIO voltages did not help at all.

    Great advice, thank you!

    And by "completely stable," how many passes of memtest do you consider it to be foolproof? My Corsairs, when OC'ed, were erroring out at Test 7 (block moves) on the first pass, so it was easy for me to disqualify them for OC duty.

    And, if you're suggesting to keep trying with the XMP on the Corsairs that I've already written off, are you saying that I should try increasing the voltages on the 16Gb x 2 DDR4-3200s to 1.38? Is there any risk to actually increasing these voltages in this way (I assume not)?

    RealBench, heavy gaming, and everyday use stable.

    I've seen reports that you can go as high as 1.50v without any or little risk:

    Do you place much credence on MemTest86+ results? In particular, the row hammer bit flips warning on Test 13?

    Thank you!

    I have never used memtest, I see no reason to do so.
