Gigabyte X570 Master + G.Skills Rapjaws V ram = blue death

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


Gigabyte x570 Master

Ryzen 9 3900x

2x16GB 3200mHz Cl14 G.Skillz Ripjaw V RAM  (F4-3200C14D-32GVK)

M.2 Corsaire MP510

PSU 750w EVGA P2

Noctual NH-D15 SE-AMD


Motherboard Bios:

Original Bios is version F3 (you cannot even find it on Gigabyte website).  Issue occurred so I updated the bios to F5e.  Issue still occurred.



The Motherboard will not accept the XMP setting, it will reset the bios and run the RAM at 2133mHz.  Even when it runs it at 2133mHz, the computer cycles a couple of time before loading into Windows 10, then crashes in Windows 10 about 5 minutes in.  I am currently assuming it's the RAM (returning it in the mail today), but the post code error before the mobo cycles is code 27, so I am also assuming if could be the mobo.  The odd thing is, it will boot into Windows eventually after cycling 1 to 3 times.

I tried using only one stick and rotated between each stick in different slots.  Issue occurred every time. So my next step is to try different RAM and if that does not work, return the mobo?


So I ordered some HyperX Predator Black 32GB (HX436C17PB3K2/32) which is on Gigabyte approved RAM for this board (returned RAM was not on the list), so I will find out in 3 to 7 days if this is the issue... add $100 to the build, joy.



Has anyone else run into this issue?  Is it the RAM or the mobo?   Did I just get unlucky and receive bad RAM or is its just not compatible with AMD Ryzen?  Am I looking in the wrong place? I though that the x570 boards had more compatibility with RAM this time around...


Thank you in advance.

That ram is probably Samsung B-die so has as good a chance as any of working. I'm not having the best ram performance trying to run a 3600 on a B450 at the moment, but it is running TridentZ 3000C14 which is B-die. Can't get 3400 ram known working with 2600 going with it. What AGESA version is your mobo bios on? There is speculation the earlier ones might not have as good ram compatibility, and my B450 is over 2 versions old.

I had the initial F3 bios which I have no knowledge of the AGESA version.  The F5e has ??? not sure, they now have F5g (updated today) which is AGESA Gah, I should have kept the RAM for the weekend to see if the NEW bios would fix the issue.


And yes, the RAM was Samsung B-die, hence why I think I got bad RAM, but it could also be a bad mobo.

Received the RAM from Amazon... thank you Amazon for Saturday delivery!

The bios is holding the XMP setting so the RAM was not acceptable for this motherboard even if it was B-die.  Updated the bios from F5e to F5g while I was at it, had to re-activate the XMP, it holds and detects it.  1 Problem solved.

Windows is still crashing, at this point I should not be surprised since it was installed with bad(?) RAM, this could also indicate a bad or an issue with the M.2(?).  Currently creating a new Windows 10 installer (prior was dated from Oct 2017) so I am giving myself more chances.  If this fails, I'll try installing on a SSD which I have on hand.  Not ideal, but should tell me if I have an issue with the M.2.

Funny enough, it keeps crashing when I am downloading the NVIDA drivers....

Make sure not to install the drivers for the RAID... it causes Windows 10 to stop working for some reason.

Create a new windows 10 installer before starting, make a HUGE difference, no longer crash...


CPU running without doing any overclocking on my part at 4.275 on all cores, boost to 4.300 when needed, cannot complain.


My photos which used to take about 50 seconds to compile after editing is taking 15 seconds.  Going from 4 cores to 12 cores, shaved more than 3 times the time to encode.  It even beats my laptop which took 26 seconds to encode.


Quite happy.
