So my friends ram is clocking at 2100mhz during a pc benchmark .com benchmark, sometimes his system hangs he has a completely new pc just built today, what could be causing this?
This is his build

He has his ram in the 2nd and 4th slot, I believe he doesnt have xmp enabled in bios. Not sure if he needs to do a bios update, any help would be appreciated!

lol,ok, then i'd suggest you dont do anything until you've had some sleep... But, firstly i'd check to see what bios version he has.I'd enable the xmp in bios to see if it will run stable at 3600mhz. But i really would advise to hold off on updating the bios until someone more experienced can advise you,(im unfamiliar with that motherboard,) as you are probably aware, if you make a mistake while updating the bios, it can totally brick your board.

When I try to upgrade the bios I go to the asus website and extract the bios file into a USB but the rename tool isn't in there, and I dont know how to download via dhcp

Not being funny mate but I did ask you what bios version is he currently on? have you enabled the xmp in bios? (both of which you didnt answer.) And not to try a bios update until someone more experienced can advise you.

according to a search it says I have to rename the file to something else and when I extract it it should come with a rename tool already but there isn't one in the folder and I can't find the page in the mobo manual to rename the file too.
