Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master XMP profile BSOD

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master XMP profile BSOD
« on: October 01, 2019, 08:11:54 pm »
Hi All,

I was wondering if you could help me in diagnose a problem I am having with my new build. I am experiencing BSOD's on a regular basis with the memory's XMP profile enabled.

Some of the Stop Codes I am getting are:
  • System Service Exception
The timing of the memory is in spec with the documentation on the Corsair website, link below

It is worth noting that the even though the part number is the same the DRAM manufacturer (Hynix and Samsung) is different on each 2x 8GB pair. I have tried multiple configurations of the memory such as the list below but I continue to get BSOD's when the XMP is enabled.

  • 1x 8GB Samsung(Slots 1) both DIMMS
  • 1x 8GB Hynix(Slots 1)both DIMMS
  • 1x 8GB Samsung(Slots 2)
  • 1x 8GB Hynix(Slots 2)
  • 2x 8GB Samsung(Slots 2/4)
  • 2x 8GB Hynix(Slots 2/4)
  • 4 x8GB Samsung (Slots 2/4) + Hynix (Slots 1/3) and the other way around
I'm just about to pull out the rest of my hair as my memory is stuck at 2133Mhz in order to keep the system stable. Anyone have any suggestion on a resolution?

I give you my thoughts:

1) Provided you are all on bios defaults/auto hence no oc at all even GPU - errors?
2) Max temperature CPU in range?
3) Max temperature GPU?
4) Use just 2 ram slots
5) Use 21xx ram speed - more stable?

My system took 2 weeks until 3200 ram became stable and this with HyperX 3200 Predator - until then step down/ reduce speed.

Once you found a stable setting - use that for a week.. then slowly step up

This may sound like a broken record..  but is this RAM on the QVL for the board?

Even so, knowing that this is not a matched set of 4 DIMMs could be a problem.  (Mixing memory chips)

We all hope that using non-QVL RAM which shares the correct SPECS for our boards will work, but sometimes for (a multitude) of unknown reasons they won't.  JDEC spec might not be correct for XMP profile is one of the many possibilities.  Using high quality RAM helps, and I also like corsair RAM.  This is the first time I went with G-Skill.

Sometimes a BIOS updates helps.  Of course you should test the RAM as well as faulty RAM sometimes works too, until the area that has a problem is accessed.  Not saying its faulty, but didn't see mention of testing in your post.

If the RAM is not QVL, using manual settings can also work.  AgentFXA is a expert in his own right.  His recommendations are always spot on.

After quickly playing around with the memory profiles I managed to get the system stable with the memory at 3133Mhz. Going to play around with the latency settings but it's a big step forward.
