    Intel P3700 compatibility with Z97 motherboard

    ClementChong

      Does the P3700 SSD actually populate values into Intel SMBus slave device 53h?

      I have this SMBus issue on one Z97 motherboard (ASUS Maximus VII Gene) but not on another Z97 motherboard (ASROCK Z97M Pro 4).

      As far as I know, 53h is supposed to contain DIMM SPD data for memory slot B2, when any RAM is populated in slot B1/B2 while the P3700 SSD is populated in any of the PCI Express slots on the Maximus VII Gene motherboard will result in a memory error (no boot).

      I am trying to figure out who should I be looking for a fix to this issue, Intel or Asus?
