Corsair 12gb vengance ram XMP

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, i installed 12gb of ram the other day with win7 64 bit. I have an MSI mother board and enabled XMP and it gives me no other options. The only thing i see i can do is set the timings i don't see where i can set the speed or volts for ram. Should i do some screen captures to show whoever looks at this post. I don't even know how to screen capture while in the bios.

Enabling the XMP Profile should set the speed and timings for you. Memory voltage is usually not in the same menu as the timings, all voltage settings are likely under a single menu.

Screen caps in the bios = you taking a picture of your monitor with a camera.

I did set the bus frequency at 150 which put it at 3.00ghz and it set the ram higher but only through setting the clock higher for the cpu. I just can't overclock that much i don't have the right case and cooling its a dell xps case. i will be getting a haf-x 942 once i get money together. Anyway here are some pics. When i overclocked i disabled the turbo state so it would stay at the speeds i set. In the pictures it is back to stock settings. I did flash the bios with a new bios version to give me more freedom. The speed for the ram with XMP set should be at 1600mhz, in the pictures its still at 1066mhz. It was like this when i set it to enable xmp and saved it. Then i went to the desktop and went back to the bios and the memory speed is still at 1066mhz.

What settings do you have under 'Memory Ratio' in the second pic, and 'Advanced Memory Settings' in the third pic? You have XMP enabled, but I do not think you have selected the XMP profile on the RAM. Im thinking that under Advanced Memory Settings there will be an option like 'XMP Profile 1' that you will need to select.

Your DDR3 voltage can be set by changing the 'DDR3 Memory Voltage' in pic 4 to a non Auto value.

I dont think you posted what options you have listed under 'Advanced Memory Settings', right now its marked Auto, but I am guessing this is where you need to enable the XMP profile.

The setting is listed in Pic 3 of 5.
