Maximus Extreme Z690 BIOS 2103 RAM Slots Not Working

Frankpaintbrush
Level 7
Updated the BIOS to 2103 and planned to get a 13900k to slap in, but after restarting got a stuck error code 55.

Took out the Corsair DDR5 from slots A1/B1 and restarted and it posted no issues. Tried putting my RAM back in those slots to fill up all 4 and went back to error 55.

Prior to BIOS 2103 I was on 1720 with no issues using all 4 sticks. From what I understand also there's no going back to previous BIOS.

Anyone else having the same issue with RAM? Is this a Corsair issue or an issue now with the Extreme board? I've had nothing but issues with the Corsair DDR5 Dominators but usually it's lighting/iCue related.

Thanks!

Hi Frankpaintbrush,
Could you please help to check if it still stuck at error code 55 after update Intel ME v16.1.25.1885 from our support site?
Thank you.

*Disregard I found it on the BIOS page.*

Where is the ME v16.1.25.1885 download at for the Z690 Extreme?

Top one I see is Intel ME V2229.3.2.0 for Windows 10 64-bit and Windows 11 64-bit, is that the right one?

Thanks!

I did exactly as you are planning to do and updated my BIOS to 2103 with my 12900K and x2 16GB Sticks of Corsair Dominator Ram running at 6200 and thinking I would add the 13900K. I purchased the 13900K and x2 GSKILL RAM running at 6600 with the understanding that the 13900K "loves" fast DDR5 supposedly.

13900K was installed then I removed the Corsair RAM and installed the GSKILL RAM booted to BIOS and set XMP profile II. Then I booted up the system and everything seemed okay. I messed around for a bit and went to bed. The next day I turned on the PC and got a "DETECT MEMORY" error. I reset CMOS and it posted but went to BIOS due to my NVME drive no longer being detected. I left the memory settings on "AUTO" and rebooted. Again, the system posted but went to BIOS with no NVME detected. I removed the NMVE from the M.2_1 socket and installed it on the DIMM.2 slot with accompanying heat sink. The system booted into windows and seems to be running normally. However, if I enter BIOS and enable XMP I or II and save my changes I get the "DETECT MEMORY" error. Currently I'm using the computer with 13900K running stock with x2 16 GB of GSKILL 6600 but running at 4800. Super frustrating.

Hi Shanester,
Do you also use ROG MAXIMUS Z690 EXTREME and get stuck at error code 55?
Which bios version you used before bios 2103 and you can boot with XMP I or II?
Is your ram in our QVL list?

Have you tried other NVME in M.2_1 but was also not detected?
Could you please help to update Intel ME v16.1.25.1885 from our support site and check it again?
Thank you.

Hi Frankpaintbrush,
Please ensure all memory modules are from a single validated kit. Do not combine DIMMs from multiple kits—even if they are the same make and model. Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in failure to boot and compatibility cannot be guaranteed.
Thank you.
