Ive been into PC gaming for a few years now but never got into the nitty gritty of how my PC is running until recently despite how much money I’ve sunk into my setup, but I’ve recently realized that all this had XMP enabled in bios so I’ve been running my ram at 2133mhz instead of 3000mhz. While I was fixing that I also adjusted my memory ref clock from 100 to 133 and got some boot failure notice when my PC started up after a series of very loud beeps coming from my motherboard. I proceeded to set the ref clock back to 100 and rebooted with just the xmp activated but was stuck on a black screen with the flashing white bar at the top left you see when turning it on. Could anyone tell me if I did something I shouldn’t have? I don’t think I have any issues with quality of components or incompatibility because excluding my gpu (next upgrade) I have a strong build so maybe I’m just missing something in my ignorance
