Hi, I am new to overclock and trying to manual overclock the RAM by increasing the DRAM Frequency in BIOS.
Hopefully someone can solve my problem, many thanks!
So, I tried to go up from XMP setting @2400MHz to 2600MHz without changing anything else to see if it boots into Window.
When I boot into Window and check with the CPU-Z, the DRAM Frequency dropped and Timing increased. (2133MHz instead of going up, I guest it return to the RAM's stock frequency before XMP Profile applied )
It also affects my CPU overclock by returning it back to stock Frequency.
Am I doing something Wrong? What might be the problem?
Could it be my motherboard does not support manual setting?
I'm including more detail below:
|Before - 2400MHz with XMP profile||After - manual setting with 2600Mhz|
CPU - Skylake - i5 6600k
Motherboard model - Asrock Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming- ITX/ac
BIOS setting before Change:
|CPU Configuration||DRAM Configuration||Voltage Configuration|
I didn't find much useful manual tweaking options in the DRAM Configuration:
1st option - DRAM Tweaker - this Tweaker only let me pick between JEDEC#1,2,3 or XMP 1
2nd option. Load XMP Setting - can only either set to Auto or XMP 2.0 Profile 1 , I left it at XMP when I tried setting Frequency to 2600Mhz
3rd option. DRAM Frequency - It provide a list of frequency option, this is where I set to 2600Mhz
