    Default G.skills Tridentz 3400 mhz (2x8GB) memory only runs @3200mhz on GA-Z170X-UD3 ?

    G.skills Tridentz 3400 mhz (2x8GB) memory only runs @3200mhz on GA-Z170X-UD3 ?

    motherboard- Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3
    BIOS=F6
    cpu is Intel i5 6600K with Nepton 140 xl watercooler
    videocard is Zotac GTX970
    drive is Intel 750 PCI 400GB add in card with windows 10 home 64 bit
    memory is G.skillz Tridentz 3400mhz(2x8GB) (F4-3400C16D-16GTZ ) is on the memory compatibility list

    I have the cpu running factory settings with baseclock at 100.00ghz
    for some reason, the default bios had the baseclock at 102.03 and this with 33 multiplier on the memory gives 3400mhz, but it won't boot on that.
    everything seems to better with cpu base clock of 100.00 ghz
    the memory runs well at a 32 multiplier, but when I key in 34 multiplier it defaults to 33.33
    and it will not boot, it boots and flawlessly from 2133 mhz to 3200mhz
    since this setup is only a dual memory stick setup , I am questioning what to do to go to a quad setup(4x8GB), it seems like 3200mhz quad memory would be best if this GA-Z170-UD3 motherboard can only run a 32 multiplier on the memory

    ideas?

    in the gigabyte GA-Z170x-UD3 motherboard specifications , it says "
    "Support for DDR4 3466(O.C.) /3400(O.C.) /3333(O.C.) /3300(O.C.) /3200(O.C.) /3000(O.C.) /2800(O.C.) /2666(O.C.) /2400(O.C.) /2133 MHz memory modules"


    and the g.skills tridentz @3400mhz , part # "F4-3400C16D-16GTZ" sticks are listed ion the compatability list
    so i dunno why the 3400mhz can only run 3200mhz

    gigabyte's bios is STILL patheticly buggy, fast boot problems, ram overclocks unstable, etc. also releasing new bioses VERY slowly compared to others. im still thinking about switching back to asus if they get a good enough sale. so sick of this..

    z170x-gaming 5 anyway, cant even run ram at for example, 16-15-16-30 or 16-16-15-30, the 2 timings in the middle MUST be the same or no boot, regardless of speed/voltage/other settings when other boards do it fine.

    tldr: gigabyte screwed up hard on z170 with their bioses & are moving at the speed of molasses to fix ANY of them. xmp is full of problems too just google search that..
