XMP Profile Increasing Timings?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Z170-A Board

When I enable XMP for my Corsair Vengeance 3200mhz DDR4

The timings go from 16-18-18-36 to 17-19-19-37

Also goes from 1600mhz to 1632mhz

Is this normal?

Tthe whole concept of XMP is faulted because the person writing the XMP SPD table for the memory has no idea what motherboard, CPU, what other peripherals are connected to your motherboard, nor even how many memory sticks you have installed. So, XMP profiles are just a guess at what memory overclock will work for the widest range of motherboards, CPUs, memory, and computer configurations. They have nothing to do with what your specific setup is. ... they're just a guess.

Do they work? Sometimes, sometimes not. And even if they do work it is unlikely they are the best settings for you particular setup.

Memory setting (with or without overclocking) is best done by manually setting the memory settings in the BIOS.

What I think doesn't matter at all. What do you think?

If I were you. I'd try benchmarking my memory at various speeds and timings (all set manually in the BIOS) and see what is the best. If there's a better way to find out if your memory is "OK" I don't know what it is.

Attached not CPU-Z Memory but on Asus Real Bench you can see the memory specs at the top.

Ok sorry not at home at the moment but I did call corsair and they said it's 100% Normal?

What is the information you're looking for on the memory and SPD Tab as I might have it memorized at this point

When I get home tonight I will send it to you ASAP
