The Asus boards I've tested have been smoother.
    Great :) At least something.. better that the answer from Gigabyte to my support case. They told me, Skylake does not support XMP with 4 modules and it's normal, that it would not work..

    Okay, I've flashed now the newest Beta Bios F7a. That one did the trick. I am finally able to boot with XMP 3000MHz..

    [EDIT]
    But it's not stable.. About 1-2 hours later, Windows freezes..

    I have the same error with my Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 7 BIOS F6f. I use Dominator Platinum Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15 Memory Kit (CMD32GX4M2B3000C15) but cannot run in XMP1.

    Gigabyte just release new BIOS update to fix this error on BIOS F7 and F8d beta but I cannot update the firmware by @BIOS neither Q-Flash. Do you know how to update BIOS successful? I used Q-Flash they can verified and update successful, the BIOS need restart and after that I enter the BIOS, the BIOS version still in F6f. Here is the screenshoots:

    Try clearing Cmos on the mobo then Q-flash from Bios. Remember that the mobo is dual boot so it could be defaulting to backup Bios rather than the updated one. There is a switch and light to tell you which Bios the mobo is booting up on.

    Thank for your help. I updated successful with your guide. Here is my solve for another:

    1. Turn off your PC. Look on your Mainboard has clear CMOS button, hold it for 5s. See the screenshot below for instruction.
    2. Power on, press End key to use Q-Flash update firmware from USB or from hard driver.

    If the BIOS still not update, try this:
    3. Switch SB to Position 2 to use Single BIOS (Position 1 for Dual BIOS). See the screenshot below for instruction.
    4. Clear CMOS again.
    5. Power On and try to update BIOS again.

    PS: the Ver F8d still not fix the XMP issue for Corsair Dominator bus 3000 MHz.
