So I went to adjust my ram from 1333 to it's intended 1600mhz (labeled on the side of the actual RAM). For some reason I have no XMP profile section on my Giagabyte z77-hd3 BIOS. I thought all HyperX marketed RAM were XMP if they are paired with an intel Ivy CPU ( i5 3570k @ 4.2)?

I know it's not a big deal but I wonder if their may be a bigger issue here.

Thanks

Wow that was fast. I have it set to 1600mhz manually, though I haven't messed with the timings, but shouldn't there be a XMP profile in the bios?

I can't really speak to that since I have always been on AMD boards. I do know that on my corsair RAM that CPUz shows the XMP under the SPD tab. Does CPUz show it for you?

As I recall, the HyperX PnP version has its DDR3-1600 settings in JEDEC only. If the OP would post what precise model number of RAM he's using, it would be easier to help diagnose any problems...

I'm having the Same issue. NO XMP Option (BIOS or CPUZ)

I'm using I THINK the same RAM.

Kingston Hyper X FURY 1600mhz CL10 (I know i know, CL10!! ) I Believe this is the model # HX316C10FWK2/8
I'm at a stand still with my OC'ing because of the Lack of XMP option. ALL tutorials (yes, i need a little reading to OC my pc) have the XMP as a major step. I'm hoping that someone can answer this before I go out and drop a few hundred MORE or better RAM!
