Believe CPU-Z or BIOS? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
The Gigabyte App reads the actual settings for the BIOS. The BIOS can even be changed from the app and have it applied upon the next reboot. It's reads the same way when I start up the computer and boot into the BIOS I just used the app as an easy way for me to show you what was going on.

I swear that XMP Profile 1 is enabled in the BIOS. It's one of the first things I did.
And I've checked. And double checked.

Maybe try an older version of CPU-Z? I trust the bios more than CPU-Z. If you're bios is saying 1598MHZ, then that's what your RAM is running at, IMO.

If you have enabled XMP and it's still showing 1333mhz in cpu-z, disable it and set it manually like so:

Set the SPD in the BIOS to 16.00 and then set the timings and the voltage correctly to stock, load up windows and post a screenshot of cpu-z with the memory tab.

Okay: Here is apparently the solution.

I took somewhat of a combination of the suggestions. I still had XMP enabled on the mother board, but instead of it taking the profile from there and expecting it to work I still manually set it as 9-9-9-24 at 1.5V.

Apparently that double whammy got it done and it's stuck.
