Question Ryzen XMP causes crashes while gaming

Jan 19, 2023
Hi, I've recently upgraded my ram, and after enabling XMP at 3600 MHz, my pc crashes or games crashes after 5-20 min.

My main specs are the following:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600x 4.4 GHz
GPU: Zotac RTX 3060ti
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 X 8GB) DDR4 3600 MHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus B550M PRO-P (Latest BIOS version)
PSU: Corsair RM750x, 750 Watt

I've watched a lot of tutorials on Youtube about how to overclock my RAM to 3600MHz, so I tried a lot of configurations to manage to overclock it correctly. I thought I did it after using DRAM calculator and Thaiphoon Burner, but after 40-50 min playing my PC crashed again. I spent a lot of time reading forums and tweaking memory timings and other RAM settings in the BIOS like DRAM voltage, but I am not able to overclock my RAM correctly, my PC always crashes while gaming.

Previously, I had 16GB RAM Single-Channel 2666Mhz, and my PC didn't have problems with these random crashes.

What should I do to overclock my RAM correctly?

I hope anyone can help me, I am desperate after trying so many solutions and not getting the proper results...

Thanks for reading!
