P870KM1 memory speeds
Apparently there is a slight difference in how the KM1 (true Kaby Lake version of the P870) works with memory when compared to the earlier versions of the P870 platform that were based on Sky Lake. I include the firmware upgraded versions of the earlier P870 as they still use the Z170 chipset while the KM1 uses the Z270.
What brought this up was a vendor who could not support 2666 MHz DDR4 and stepped back to 2400 MHz on their offering. While I see other vendors are offering 3000 MHz DDR4.
Maybe this is a tuning/timing issue or maybe they are running Prema BIOS (IDK). Does anyone have a P870KM1 that is running 3000 MHz (or higher) DDR4? What are your settings? I would like to try it out.
Being forced back to 2400 MHz is like buying a Ferrari and putting Goodyear tires on it.
