Always have had Gigabyte boards but decided to try this with a 3400 G using Vega11 integrated graphics and 16 Gig of RAM to stream movies, YouTube onto a 4K TV via HDMI 2.0
With updated bios it will...
...work fine with 2666 Memory
...freeze randomly with Memory set higher than 2666...and yes I do have the 2 sticks in the correct Dual Channel slots
...freeze randomly and black screen 1-5 times an hour with 3200 Memory in DOCP mode
...boot SSD and Hard Drive disappear randomly from Bios and I get the message no boot devices available
After a week I've had enough and have bought a Gigabyte board elsewhere to replace it.
It's a nicely sp...view more
