Thanks for replying Matt

In CPU-Z The SPD XMP data says it is 7-8-7-24 but the memory data shows 8-8-7-24. This is confirmed in every other source I have seen.
See the image below.
I have tried 1.64, 1.66, 1.68 and 1.70 V with no joy. I have also increased QPI/VTT incrementally with no luck - and it still boots in 8-8-7-24 when using XMP mode with both 8GB and 16GB.
When I set the timings manually with 16GB it will boot with 8-8-7-24 (the same as XMP) but not 7-8-7-24.
When I set the timings manually with 8GB at 7-8-7-24 it works. But this is the only way it will work at its designated rating - manually and only with 8GB - not XMP.
So the question has to be asked whether this is a memory or motherboard issue.
