So I;ve asked before but I still cant seem to get my RAM clocked to the intended 3200mhz its capable of running on. But everytime I even attempt to turn XMP on it instatnly blue screen until I turn it back off. Is there something Im missing or doing wrong? All my components are capable of OC and compatible. Not sure where to go from here.

Not all memory will work at rated speeds in all systems. Just too many variables to assure 100% of rated speeds over all possible CPU, motherboard, memory combinations.

You may be dealing with one of those scenarios.

So pretty much nothing I can do that might be a quick common fix. gotcha :(

I have had MANY rigs over the years. I have had more than one where memory would simply not run at their rated speed in System A...but would in others.

In those cases, after satisfying my curiosity, I dropped the speed back a notch to have stable systems.

Nope. Just select the 3000 XMP profiile. Don't manually tweak anything afterward. You could inadvertently cause instability.

When you select a profile, settings should be automatically adjusted.
Seems to be working at 3000mhz , no blue screen yet after 2-3 minutes :eek: is there a way to stress it to find out?

Takes 3 hours with 32 gigs, will be a thorough test and it will heat up RAM slightly so if the test fails at a later stage, it's probably temp-related or too tight a timing (which also pushes up temp).
