H110 & Kaby Lake

Sun Mar 12, 2017 2:38 pm

I've made this post just to share my findings.
Tested a i5 7500 with a Gigabyte H110M-S2HP and a pair of PC2400 memory sticks.

Original BIOS (F4): no boot
Updated with Skylake CPU to F20: boot with the memory running at 2400Mhz.

Runs stable with no issues whatsoever.
Funny how this H110 motherboard has no issue running the memory at 2400Mhz for which it never was advertised. It's a sad thing how Intel limits the memory speed on these boards.

I wonder if the reason for being able to hit 2400MHz is because that's Kaby Lake's max supported memory speed, whereas Skylake had a max of 2133MHz. Since the H110 series was originally launched for Skylake, that could be the reason for 2133MHz advertised.
Main: i5-3570K, ASRock Z77 Pro4-M, MSI RX480 8G, 500GB Crucial BX100, 2 TB Samsung EcoGreen F4, 16GB 1600MHz G.Skill @1.25V, EVGA 550-G2, Silverstone PS07B
HTPC: A8-5600K, MSI FM2-A75IA-E53, 4TB Seagate SSHD, 8GB 1866MHz G.Skill, Crosley D-25 Case Mod

Yes, that is indeed the reason. Even with the updated bios, Skylake CPU's are still limited to 2133.
