So im wondering is this RAM XMP compatible on this mobo? If not, do you suggest overclocking manually? In UEFI BIOS it says XMP disabled and when i click it nothing happens (the text is grayed)

Mobo: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5
CPU: i5-4690k
RAM: Kingston Fury 2x4GB 1600Mhz CL 10 DDR3 Memory Kit

RAM Part Numbers:

CPU Z says: KHX1600C10D3/8G
In package: HX316C10FBK2/8

To OC the DRAM above and beyond spec has to be done manually - as far as the spec (1600) - you don't have to do anything, the Fury don't use XMP, they work from PnP so they set up to spec data (1600) rate automatically ;)

I watched Linus' video and he said that they automaticly clock pretty close to the best clocks for the system. But if i want to get even more perfomance, do you know what settings i need to set? (timings, clock speeds, voltages..)

bit late for this but I got my set of that ram to 2400Mhz using CAS 11-12-14-12 1.65V. there is room for improvement but make sure it has a little airflow because mine gets burning hot after a few hours.
if it needs cooling just get a ram cooler or an old fan and point it ar the ram that did a very good job for me!

hope this helps in anyway :)
