The location anomalies are that in the UEFI, the Corsair 8Gb is is in slot 1, the Kingston 4Gb is in slot 2, then the Hynix are in 3 & 4.
Physically, all are located as reported by UEFI.
In CPU-Z, the Corsair 8Gb shows in slot 1, a Hynix 4Gb shows in slot two, the Kingston 4Gb shows in slot 3 and the other Hynix shows in slot 4.
Pretty sure that UEFI is reading the physical locations of the RAM slots (AABB) whereas CPU-Z is reading 1122
UEFI
Slot 1 - A1
Slot 2 - A2
Slot 3 - B1
Slot 4 - B2

CPU-Z
Slot 1 - A1
Slot 2 - B1
Slot 3 - A2
Slot 4 - B2

Well, that makes sense and I didn't look at it that way.

You were correct about the Kingston and I stand corrected. I must have been thinking of a different module.
Still, if the RAM module is rated at 1600MHz without XMS, I don't get why it would need to be overclocked to run at its' designated speed.
Oh well...
I took the Kingston out and just have the Corsair 8Gb and the two Hynix 4Gb in now and it is running at 1600MHz. I'll just leave it at that until I can locate another Corsair 8Gb PC3-12800 1600MHz to match the other one.
Tired of fighting with it.
I guess you can close or delete this post and all the comments now if you want.
