    Hi guys I have been testing all the bdie kits I bought in the past few months however I ran into several obstacles when I was testing them on my MSI Z370I board which I would really appreciate some inputs.

    1. From other guides I read good bdie kits should run stable at 4000-4133 C15-16 with relatively low voltage (1.5V or below), is that true?
    2. Is it normal some bdie kits do not post above certain frequency while others do? In my case 2 of my kits do not post at or above 4266MHz C19 with loose primary timings using the same motherboard no matter how I try however they behave fine at 4200 or below.

    Finally out of all the kits I tested only one kit was able to pass memtest with at least 500% coverage running at 4400 C19 with 1.4V, is it even considered as good or just average :confused:

    At those speeds you'll be after a golden CPU too :)

    I already got 8086K to eliminate this issue, from reading 8086K generally has better IMC than 8700K and 8600K :thumbup: but just not sure why some kits do not work at 4266 or above, I do notice those do not work above 4266 they all have the same PCB layout where DRAM ICs are much closer to golden fingers.
