Hello guys,

I made a new build with:
- AsRock Fatality AB350 Gaming k4
- Ryzen 5 1600X
- G.Skill Flare X 3200 2x8gb

I have updated bios to 4.60.

I tried different ram configuration but i can't get dual rank configuration. I don't understand what is the problem :(

A1 A2: workstation switch on and switch off after many seconds continuosly
A1 B1: single rank configuration
A2 B2: single rank configuration
B1 B2: as first case

Thanks in Advance!

UPDATE: solved! I didn't try a stupid test before posting. I'm so sorry. I tried one stick at time and noticed that my build won't boot with one because it's broken... i ask for a return and now it's working with new sticks!

It works with 1 DIMM, at 3200mhz?

I havnt looked in to the RAM stats, but with the known Ryzen ram issues I'd suspect that, especially if you're setting the XMP to 3200. Try downclocking the RAM to 2666 or even 2400 and see if it'll boot off 1 stick, then move to 2 at the same mhz.

Edit: Jesus, I just saw the OP date. I'm shocked no one replied to this before now, not sure how I missed it.

Are you looking for dual "Ranks" or Dual "Channel"?

Dual Channel would be affected by what slot you put your memory into....

Dual Rank is a description of the physical makeup of the memory at a hardware level and can't be changed.

Unfortunately I received a broken stick. My bios recognized it with no problem (at 2400 Mhz but you described the right scenario). Windows and Linux recognized 16 gb ram but only usable 8. I ask for a return and now my new ram sticks work like a charm.

Don't worry about the date. This is a forum with a free help and I love it! :punk:
