    I got 2 of these boards for work builds and one of them will not POST if there is memory in slot B0 (2nd slot for triple-channel setup). I updated the BIOS with no luck, any ideas? Know that the memory is good.

    Thanks,

    Yep, although MSI specifies a pattern to follow - A0, B0, C0, A1, B1, C1 - it works fine in A0 + C0 but not A0 + B0.

    maybe it has a bad memslot, try using a1+b1+c1 for triple channel.

    Update: I went to RMA it and saw that a couple of the pins on the socket were bent. I used a needle to bend them back and it works fine.
