guys i bought a new pair of rams yesterday and when i put it in and turn XMP on my pc doesn't boot, it only boots if i increase the voltage up to 1.38, is this ok? shouldn't it run without tweaking the voltages?

Make and model of your motherboard? BIOS version for said motherboard? Processor paired with aforementioned motherboard? Which slots are you populating the motherboard's ram slots? Speaking of rams, got a link to said ram(kit)?
