    May wait for beta with upgraded microcode then... doesn't want to play with UBU still!
    also right MPX was disabled because I enabled Hyper-V and it's a known limitation..
    so seems Speed Shift is all remaining to be enabled in BIOS..

    Also even SGX reports HWINFO enabled this may be only CPUID support not complete BIOS support according to https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware
    I have compiled the simple test there and I'm getting exactly the output supposed with no BIOS support:
    SGX is available for your CPU but not enabled in BIOS

    <code>...
    Extended feature bits (EAX=07H, ECX=0H)
    eax: 0 ebx: 29c6fbf ecx: 0 edx: 0
    sgx available: 1

    CPUID Leaf 12H, Sub-Leaf 0 of Intel SGX Capabilities (EAX=12H,ECX=0)
    eax: 0 ebx: 0 ecx: 0 edx: 0
    sgx 1 supported: 0
    sgx 2 supported: 0
    MaxEnclaveSize_Not64: 0
    MaxEnclaveSize_64: 0
    ...

    so F7k BIOS is only enabling the CPUID SGX flag but not complete BIOS support..
    doubt that complete BIOS support it's only a microcode update and seems works remaining to Gigabyte BIOS..
    </code>

    What you have (set) in BIOS/ Peripherals/ Intel(R) Bios Guard Technology ......

    Edit:
    In F6 and F7k BIOS by default is Disabled.

    Btw,
    Intel has full control over SGX.....
    https://jbeekman.nl/blog/2015/10/int...trol-over-sgx/

    Also according to some web pages driver is required for this.....found only this atm...

    Intel Software Guard Extensions Platform Software Version 1.0.26920.1393

    I am have been having the same problems with the GA-Z170X-UD5. I started with G.Skill F4-2400C15D-16GRR and the board will not POST (error 55) with the RAM in dual channel (either pair of sockets) at any speed. It will POST 99% of the time in a single channel configuration or with only one stick at 2133. If XMP is enabled it will fail to post 50% of the time. If it does POST there's a good chance for a BSOD.

    I switched to the Trident Z sticks this weekend (F4-3200C16D-16GTZB). Dual channel was unstable in Channel A (socket 0/2) but so far today it has been stable in Channel B (socket 1/3). Everything is at stock/auto speeds, BIOS F5j. I haven't bothered trying XMP with these.

    This is obviously something common to the chipset/platform with the same symptoms on multiple board models. I'm not unhappy with the performance at stock speeds but for the premium price of these boards I do expect it to at least be stable at stock when using RAM on their approved list.

    Hi there,

    Sorry, let me be more clear about what works and what does not (for me):

    Dual Channel A (socket 0/2) stock MHz - error 55
    Dual Channel B (socket 1/3) stock MHz - Stable so far (less than 24 hours)
    Single stick (any socket) stock MHz - stable
    Single channel two sticks (such as 2/3) stock MHz - stable

    When XMP is enabled, no configuration works. I either get error 55 at POST, or it boots and Windows eventually crashes with a BSOD.
    I have not tried single stick + XMP.

    This happens with both a set of G.Skill Ripjaws 4 (2400) and Trident Z (3200) 2x8GB kits on a GA-Z170X-UD5 with BIOS F5j.

    Thanks for replying...same situation here but for 2 days i was stable until i pulled out the power to fix sth in the block off cpu after that BSOD and code 55.
    I changed slots....and managed to see windows only with the single channel 4-1 slot (16gb in cpuz)i am thinking of leaving thit way until gigabyte fix this...
    But i dont think that cpu motheboard or ram are faulty...incompatibility issue

    Ok guys i found the solution to my problem...https://major.io/2014/08/22/asus-max...gene-error-55/ for those with the same symptoms with me i am with custom watercooling...
    Pay attention to the down right side of the block because there are the lanes of the ram....after a carefull reinstall of the block everything is okxmp profile 3200 with no problem..
