Hello, I recently upgraded my pc, it booted up just fine except when I turned on xmp profile, at which point it refused to boot. I have updated the BIOS thinking maybe that was the issue but no such luck after the update I also tried to manually overclock it to 3200 MHz and it didn't boot then either. In my old build it booted on xmp just fine and ran on it for a little under a year, the pc does boot when the ram is running on auto which is 2133 MHz. i also ran the windows diagnostics memory and no issues were detected, im not sure what the issue could be, perhaps the motherboard?

try only dual-channel;
1x 8GB DIMM A_2
1x 8GB DIMM B_2

you won't see any performance improvement through 11th gen running quad-channel anyway.
if it works in dual-channel mode i'd return\sell the quad-channel kit and get a 2x 16GB kit.
Thank you ill give this a try, ima borrow some ram from a friend to see if its faulty ram as well
