  • MSI B350m gaming pro and G.SKILL F4-2400C15D-16GFXR 16 GB (8 GB x 2) Flare X Series

    I had to update the bios on my motherboard so that the mobo could recognise my new 2600x cpu. All went 100% correct.

    I've been having problems on and off with bluescreens and finally found the issue. When i go in to the bios I find, that even with XMP over clocking disabled, the ram is running at 2400mhz. If i click XMP1, the ram then drops down to 2133mhz. If i select XMP2 no change happens. To get the system to run stable I've had to turn off automatic detection and set the ram to run at DDR4 1866. I'm not sure if this is a RAM problem or a bios problem.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Test one module at a time to see if one stick performs better than the other.

    Are modules installed in the second and fourth slots away from CPU?

      Hey guys to save us some time repeating all the steps i've probably already done, this is my thread on the MSI website.

        Tried all sticks in every slot. I only have 2 slots.

          What does it show in BIOS once XMP is enabled?

          CPUz details look fine

            the pictures listed go from only auto selected/xmp1/xmp2

              Seems like it is running fine at the rated spec.

                Just an update. Its my CPU and the memory controller.

                Updated the mobo and another kit of 2x8gb ram. Old mobo only had 2 slots wanted 4 dimms. With only the new ram in the new mobo, my ram still jumps up to XMP2 levels even when XMP is disabled.

                Just thought i'd let you know....
