For those who may not know, there was a bug where under complex workloads, such as Prime95 testing, Skylake systems would freeze. This is something we encountered with our ASRock Z170 OC Formula, and the only means to bypass this temporarily was to over-volt the memory beyond probably and acceptable point. Now with our BIOS upgraded to 2.10, with a listed update to microcode at 0x74, we should expect to see a more stable system.
