Hi there, I have an i5 4670k CPU and an ASRock Fatal1ty z87 killer motherboard, but no matter what kind of memory or the voltage of the memory, channel B is not recognized. I have already returned the board and got a new one, reseated the cpu into the new motherboard and am still having the same issue. Is this a cpu issue? Or could it be two bad mobos in a row? I've only 4 days left on the return policy of the CPU
Hello ChiefBigBanana, I'm sorry for the inconvenience that you have faced with your processor. Since you already replaced the motherboard once and the issue persisted, I would recommend you return the CPU in order to get a new one.
If the scenario were different, I would have suggested doing some troubleshooting on the system but you only have a few days left so you can return the chip.
This behavior could be cause by different reasons, for example a defective processor, a motherboard with faulty memory slots or a motherboard with old BIOS. Also, using incorrect memory could also be a reason.
Please replace the processor and then let me know how it goes with the new one.
Hello, I wonder if it helped. I have same mobo and exact same problem. Have ordered new mobo already but have fear it will not fix issue. Mobo in its F-Stream Tuning utility can see both RAM ( under system browser ) that proves that RAM socket is not faulty. So its either CPU socket or CPU itself. I have i7 4770k, My BIOS in up to date and memory i am using is Corsair Vengeance PRO CMY16gx3m2a2400c11r .
