No Joy with Gskill f4-3200c14-32gtz


Recommended Posts

I just received the ram and installed them...at first my Godlike Carbon recognize the ram,

I enabled Xmp it showed my timings 3200...No problems no overclocking everything else was going fine...Until today I turned the machine on No JOY....I upgraded the bios to 2.2

cleared the cmos and nothing...So I decided to uninstall the ram and the only way it would

display is when only two sticks of ram were installed in 1 and 5....

any ideas on why this happening.


Brand new board ram 17-5930 evga 1300pwr and 970ssc.



Sorry this post should be in the MSI thread.

Hello Gorgster


The G SKILL F4-3200C14Q-32GTZ, are optimized for the Z170 chipset (from what Ive read from GSKILL website). checkout the site http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-3200c14q-32gtz


I have them too, and been using them with my Z170 MB and great timings and results. But on X99 I can't say.


My suggestion, take all the mem sticks, clear cmos, get the latest bios for the Godlike Carbon and try again.


Do some research of the compatibility of the 3200c14 and X99 MB.

X99 is generally terrible when trying to go over 3000mhz on RAM. The CPU IMCs and motherboards just don't like doing it. I suggest you just drop it down to 3000mhz and try lower timings because 3200 is probably going to be dodgy at best regardless of what you do unless you shove a ton of voltage into the memory controller.

I have a totally different experience.


4 X 8Gb - G.Skill Trident Z - B-die - on bios 3202 Asus RVE.

With 125 strap, XMP works 100% correctly, reading accurately ALL timings.

Reduce speed to 3333.

My four sticks run at 3333 - 12-13-13-28-1T, with extremely tight seconds and thirds, with only 1.55V and 1.15VccSA.
