    Default ASRock FM2A88X+ Killer problems

    Help please.

    I have ASRock FM2A88X+ Killer mobo (1.80 BIOS). A10-7850K.

    Today I switched out my memory because of the issues with last ones (memory did not clear for some reason even when basically nothing was running).

    Memories are kingston hyperX 2400mhz ones. Looks like they work ok with default UEFI settings but when I select XMP profile 1 or 2 (for 2400mhz and 2133mhz respectively) I get BSODs after logging into windows.

    The error I get under windows 8.1 is DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION. I tried to run "verifier /reset" in CMD but this did not help.

    With both memories I did memory tests which found no errors. So its clearly something else and not memory.

    Both these and previous memories are on ASRock's QVL list.

    1.80 BIOS? If so, might I suggest downflashing to the 1.70 BIOS offered on the download page for this MB.

    ASRock it would appear has pulled 1.80 from their servers, leaving the 1.70 at the top of the list there. Why they might have pulled 1.80 I haven't a clue, yet they may have done so for some good reason.

    Still the same after downgrading to 1.70

    Could it be because I installed windows while 1.80 was installed? I think I will try a clean install, but do I have to select XMP profile before formating/installing?

    Personally, I have the BIOS set as I want it before installing an OS.

    Can or would a BIOS interfere, I guess I can see where it might. Considering what all parameters are within a BIOS.

    Good, one more thing - if I choose an XMP profile I still have to choose DRAM frequency too right? from auto to 2400 in my case

    NO! Leave that at Auto. XMP will handle the rest.

    Looks like its working fine now. I was going to install my old ram back since with new ones it would crash even when I booted from USB to reinstall windows. I gave it 1 more try and just switched the ram module positions and now it hasn't crashed amd memory seems to be clearing fine too.

    Lemme guess. They're in the DDR3_A2 and DDR3_B2 slots now, and working?

    Previous ram were in A1/B1, these I installed in A2/B2 right from start. I simply switched places for sticks (which shouldn't make a difference I guess) and now it works.

    Anyway, thanks! Relieved now that memory is clearing as it should. I guess 1.80 had some issues indeed.

    hehe Yea, it matters.

    See Section 2.3 of the manual "Installation of Memory Modules (DIMM)"

    4. If you adopt DDR3 2600/2400/2133/1866/1600 memory modules on this
    motherboard, it is recommended to install them on DDR3_A2 and DDR3_
    B2 slots.
    That, A1 and B1 slots, has resulted in many many problems. I sometimes forget to ask which slots in my first replies here.
