So ended up doing a new build after I got a 9600k + ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming 4 for a grand total of 129.44

picked up some corsair lpx ddr4
CMK16GX4M2B3000C15
but I can't seem to get it to run at its rated speeds and timings I am tried xmp and manual and it just doesn't post, the best I could get was 2933 but it wasn't stable

am I missing some special sauce with coffee lake? or do I have a glitchy bios or bad sticks the kit is in the QVL list so it should work

ideas ? I did update to the latest bios ( 1.30)

The kit used for the QVL could've used different IC's making it pointless. That is why I don't pay attention to QVL's and only to which IC's the sticks have.
Could also be a matter of budget mobo + budget mems = meh.

What I would do is return them and get a kit of G.skill or Team B-die instead, if it still clocks bad then it's the mobo limiting it which is not uncommon for lower end ddr4 boards.

grab thaiphoon burner and verify ICs. If they are in fact B-die, you either have the worst IMC ever, or the board is playing up imho.

I may have missed it, but can one stick do it at a time...possibly a faulty stick?

Corsair is famous for revision numbers. This allows them to start with great ICs, then by changing the number on the sticker, they can keep the line going with whatever ICs are available. Sorry, but standard business for them.

As for the Hynix ICs, I have had luck on both sides. Some work really well, some take a ton of tinkering.
hate to say it, but I too would return them for something known B-die, even if used from a reputable seller.

There are some TridentZ on newegg matching specs you have, but there, timings make me think they are not the best batch (~$120). I assume you would clock them if possible?

Also sent a PM.

As you know. running dual channel, or even just more sticks means more stress on the memory controller. 9600k is only rated for up to 2666, beyond that is considered overclocking... perhaps you need to bump the voltage for the memory controller. Try bumping VCCIO?

Sounds like a trash cpu. Hynix will do 3600 just fine.

will all the sticks run at the rated speed alone? and if they do are the timings the same for all when they do. i have had to loosen timings on some ram to match others in the past, but then im forever runin miss matched ram.

had that with bent pins on a socket that i fixed but in that instance the banks wouldn't work at all (untill i fixed the pins). Wouldn't have expected those symptoms from a bad mount though. glad you fixed it.

:shadedshu: It's almost like issues with LGA sockets are common. This one is really strange... I could understand a RAM slot not working at all or something, but for a CPU reseat to cure issues with RAM running XMP that otherwise appear to work fine with JEDEC settings... weird indeed.

Had that happen with DDR3-2400 sets .... Up to ver 4.51 , they used Hynix w/ 10-12-12-28 timings ... after, 10-12-12-31. When adding RAM to Corsair box for 4 x 8GB, same model number, SPD was different at no matter how I set up the timings had issues. I took my Mushkins out and put them in and they worked fine.... so bought another set of Mushkins and they worked fine.

Even earlier in DDR2 days .... I had tried to add another 2 modules to a user's machine but because it was in the wanng days of DDr2, was no matching spec option but Gskill. They didn't work with my son's Mushkins either and yet the Corsair and Mushkinna played frin ... do i bought another 2 GSkills and the 2 pairs worked fine tothether and O put his Corsaoir's in my son's Mushkin box.

:shadedshu: It's almost like issues with LGA sockets are common. This one is really strange... I could understand a RAM slot not working at all or something, but for a CPU reseat to cure issues with RAM running XMP that otherwise appear to work fine with JEDEC settings... weird indeed.
I say this all the time lga ABSOLUTELY HATES The wrong socket tension I have seen this exact problem cause everything from random no posts to missing pcie slots so ram not running at its rated speed doesn't really surprise me

the old machine would not post if the cooler was cranked right down I always needed to leave like 1/6th of a turn on the screws for things to be happy

Fortunately, I've had good luck with my h70. It cranks all the way down without issue... though I suspect this cooler doesn't offer the same pressure as some others with more robust mounting systems.
