    X470 ram issues

    I was thinking the same thing seeing that it will not work in single channel in slot 2

    X470 ram issues

    When I populate slots 2 and 4 it will not post with the 16GB of ddr4 3600 or my 8GB ddr4 3000. But if I populate only slot for with a 4 gig stick of Ddr 3000 it will post and once it recognizes the XMP profile for that stick I can shut it off and put in the 2nd stick of 4GB and it will run into a channel. But nothing I do I cannot get the 16GB kit to work
  11. Okay so I bought an MSI x470 gaming plus motherboard and paired it with a ryzen 3600 in hindsight I know I should have went with the x570 but I got a great deal for the motherboard only $80 The issue I'm having is it will not boot up in dual-channel I have two separate kits of agiesa 2x8 ddr4 3000 I also have a kid of patriot 3000 2x4 when running an 8 gig kit it runs just fine but I have to populate slot for first and then reboot and put the second stick into slot 2 now with the 16 gig kits it does not matter what I do it only works in single channel if I populate 1 and 2 it works fine three and four it works fine but not in dual-channel I've tried bios updates with no success any help would be appreciated
  12. so I gave my son my 8600k Z390 platform and switch to a Ryzen 3600 paired with a MSI x470 Gaming plus I know I should've went with a X570 but at $159 it made more sense to go with the MSI X470 Gaming plus for $79 So my issue is I was using a kit of G.SKILL Aegis 16GB (2 x 8GB) Model F4-3000C16D-16GISB which says its compatible but when I populate slots 2 & 4 the rgb turn blue and no post, work fine with one stick ??? now I swapped ram to a 2x4 kit of Patriot DDR4 3000 viper and it works just fine. Any advice ???
