Scared after Enabling X.M.P Profile 1 under Bios

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I have a Asus p8z68-v pro gen 3 Mobo. I had the system build by a pc store so they set the Bios setting for me.

Recently I had to pull the battery out to reset bios.

Afterwards I noticed my corsair vengeance rams were running at 1333 instead of 1600.

So I went under Bios and enabled X.M.P > Profile 1 and then restarted my computer.


I am kinda scared that what if I am damaging my PC is this safe? I have noticed an increase in performance BTW.



Is there anything else I have to do in bios to improve my system without taking any risks. I have Evga gtx 980 ti card, corsair vengeance 2x4gb rams = 8gb, i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz
just wondering as I have reset the bios after pulling out the battery last week. So anything else besides enabling X.M.P profile 1??



Thanks!

you're not going to cause any damage by enabling xmp, all it does is make the ram run at its advertised speed

X.M.P. is a built in Ram speed and timing profile. If the ram would possibly be damaged it would not be supplied.(each X.M.P. Profile is set by the actual ramsticks, not the motherboard)

If you have sufficient case airflow and a proper aftermarket cooler you might want to try overclocking your CPU. Since the 2600K is a little long in the tooth now, you can gain slight gaming perf improvements by overclocking in certain titles. Most 2600K can do 4.5Ghz no problem, and some can do 4.8Ghz no problem. You just need proper cooling.

What case, fans, and cpu cooler do you have? If you don't know what they are, lots of pictures can be helpful.

I hav a suffient cooling setup because why I was getting the system build they asked me if I was going to overclock it I said yes.

Yea this pc is getting old maybe i should also overclock the cou. What is the safe overclock setti g or the most common?

I don't like hearsay. The store's idea of an overclocking setup may be nothing more than a Corsair H50, and that won't really get you anywhere. Please take a picture of your CPU cooler and post it here.

Cool. Look up an ivybridge/sandybridge overclocking guide such as the one on overclockers.com and get to work. Make sure you update to the latest bios first from the ASUS website.
