Hey all,

I have been running this specific RAM kit at 3066mhz with low timings for years on my X370 + Ryzen 1700x build; recently I upgraded to a MSI PRO-A Z590 + i5 11600k and the PC will crash if I try and use the XMP profile.

This kit is rated for 2400mhz, and should XMP to that. But it won't... it's stable at 2133 though. I don't understand, I know this kit is capable of at least 2400mhz... and I know the difference isn't huge, and I know things can vary between platforms, but still. I also tried manually entering the timings and RAM speed to the rated stuff, no luck.

I tried my girlfriend's Ripjaws V (rated at 3200mhz) kit and it DOES work with the XMP profile. What the heck? I know this may not matter much, but I do like the color of the heat spreaders and would like to keep the kit if possible.

Thanks for any insight.
