    i5-6600k processor diagnostic tool fails IMC test

    ict

      Dear intel community,

       

      I was looking into framerate problems I had with some games and in this process I ran the processor diagnostic tool. To my surprise my system failed at the IMC test:

       

      IMC Test

      Module Version: 1.0.7.64b.W

      Start Time: Sat Jan 30 13:13:29 2016

      Test Result - FAIL

      --- Reading Memory Size ---

      Unable to retrieve memory size.

      To be honest I am not sure how serious this problem is. The memory I am using is 2x8 GB Kingston HyperX Fury Black SEries DDR4 @ 2666MHz / PC4-21300, 1.2 V. Maybe someone here can help me and explain what could be the cause of this. Mind you, here are the other system specs:
