Hi everyone. I recently purchased a new motherboard G1. Sniper 3 and new ram: Corsair Dominator Platinum (2x4G) 2666MHz and a new CPU: Intel i7 3770K Ivy Bridge. However when the BIOS comes up I am unable to get it to boot at 2666MHz. After researching this, many people show a "Profile 2" under the Extreme Memory Profile (XMP). I am unable to get that to come up and I can't figure out why. Not sure if it is my ram or what, but my CPU is XMP compatible and my ram is XMP 1.3 compatible. So at this point I'm wondering what isn't allowing me to get it at 2666MHz. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated!
