Ryzen 2700 + MSI X470 Gaming Pro + G.SKill FlareX 2x8GB = RAM Problems

Hi,

After getting a MSI X470 Gaming Pro with a Ryzen 2700 and a set of G.SKill FlareX 2x8GB (DDR4-3200Mhz CL16), I noticed that it detects 16GB but only 8GB are available.

After some testes I discovered that the problem is in DIMMA1 and DIMMA2, connecting the RAM to DIMMB1 and DIMMB2 it has 16GB available. If I connect 1 or 2 RAMS to only DIMMA the PC doesn't even boot.

I've updated the BIOS to the latest one, but the problem presists.

Could this be a bad motherboard/CPU or issues with the RAM (F4-3200C16D-16GFX)?

It does sound like a bad MB to me, pacman.  You will need to talk to your MB support.  Do you mean Ryzen 2700 not 7200?  Enjoy, John.
