Trying to run XMP on memory modules results in flicking black screen & artifacting

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, its been some time since I have had a custom built desktop. So my skills (or lack thereof) are a little rusty.

However, with the emergence of XMP profiles, I figured that overclocking would be done automatically on RAM Modules.

For this system in question (it isn't in my profile) but I am running,
CPU: i7 6700K
Motherboard: Z170A-G45 MSI (from what I have read, not the best motherboard, but it is what it is)
GPU: Integrated, for now - will be upgraded to a GTX1070 or R480 depending on price
Memory: Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15
PSU: RMx750
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H105

Now, my problem starts when trying to run the memory from it's current default speeds of 2133 to it's XMP profile of 3000-15-17-17-36. This automatically increases the voltage to 1.35. However even with that, it appears to not be completely stable, as when that occurs, the monitor keeps flicking to black and then back to a full screen.

I am not sure if the sticks I got are faulty, if the motherboard can't just compensate for the increased speed, or the CPU (which has had no settings change in terms of the baseclock, or multiplier) is affected. I did try upping the voltage on the CPU itself by about .05 and that didn't seem to assist either.

Could someone give me some form of feedback on what to do?


Also, though incredibly unrelated to this thread, are resume from sleep issues a problem with this motherboard or chipset? Every time I try to resume from sleep, my computer turns off. :/ Quite annoying.

XMP profiles are just some computer engineer's idea of what will work with the widest variety of configurations - they have nothing to do with reality.

As for what to do, set all your memory parameters manually. Increase speeds and lower timings slowly until you find the fastest stable settings. - nothing new here!
