I recently "upgraded" from a 10700k to a 11700k because i wanted to utilize the gen4 capability of my motherboard.

before i upgraded i cleared my cmos then booted into windows no problem before i remembered o yea 2133 thing so back to bios to enable XMP.

BAM boot error XMP wont work at all.
I updated my bios.
I reseated my CPU.
I tried changing many settings like increasing latencies to try make higher frequencies stick tried higher frequencies with the standard latencies tried it all with and without a voltage increase.
Was able to make some settings stick like under-clocking to 1600mhz!
As well as gear 1 gear 2( both only with 2133mhz) voltage settings stick but if i try to couple them with mhz it just fails to boot...

Am i missing something obvious like my last brain cell or?

i saw someone asking for specs for someone else so i updated this next part.

x4 sticks
Mobo:Gigabyte z590 Aorus Elite rev 1.0 runing the latest version bios.

XMP of 3200 15/16/16/42 with 1.4V ran fine on 10700k with same mobo.

Got some settings i can try?
