Hello there,

i just bought a set of 2x8 3200MHZ cl16 ram for my i5 8600K / z370p d3 combo.

I went to the gigabyte bios and activated the XMP profile one.
All good, until i went to cpu Z to check the ram:

timmings are at 17-20-20-39

is this even normal? shouldn't I be getting something like 16-18-18-36?

thanks in advance

Which slots are they installed in?

Was it actually a "Set" or did you buy two separate identical modules?
Hey.

it-s an actual set.
they're mounted on 2 and 4.

im not sure if this is has something to do with my bios. i don't know my way around it that much.

should i try to set the values manually instead of using xmp?

There may be a section of your bios where you can see the rated timings and speeds of the ram read from the SPD chip on the ram themselves.

What do they say?
Hey,

I checked the numbers, they matched the timings 16-18-18-36.

And then, outta nowhere, BUUM ! cpuz is displaying the same info.
Im gonna keep an eye in the next few days.

thank you

CPU-Z shows multiple profiles and timings. If you want to ACTUALLY know what they are running at, download HWinfo, install it, run it, choose the "Sensors only" option, uncheck the "Summary" option, and then click ok. Scroll down to the memory section and the actual speed and timings will be shown. Keep in mind the speed will only be half of the rated speed, because they are "Double data rate" (DDR) memory modules. So 3000mhz memory, if it is running at 3000mhz, will show as 1500mhz. 3200mhz will show as 1600mhz. Etc. The timings will not be what are programmed on any profile however, they will be whatever they are actually running at including if you have set custom, manually input timings.
