How to enable XMP/ manually overclock G.SKILL memory with ASUS Z77 & Ivy Bridge
Someone may not be very familiar with BIOS, and we will show you how to enable XMP with Asus Z77 motherboard here

Before enable XMP, please update with latest version of Motherboard BIOS and clear the CMOS.


OR, you can manually adjust the BIOS as the memory Specification:

Select the DRAM frequency:

Adjust the Timing

Adjust the DRAM voltage

After you adjust/enable XMP profile, make sure that you save the changes & exit.

Also, you can check the DRAM frequency/Timing by CPU-Z

How to update mobo bios without booting? System doesn't boot on asus p8z77-v deluxe with G.skill trident 32GB(4x8GB) mpx.

Try with a single stick of DRAM in slot 1? If no joy there, try another different stick if available, still no joy, check this thread

With an Asus bios you are supposed to be able to update bios without booting. Check your manual. Download the new bios on another computer and extract it to a USB drive. Plug the USB drive into the white USB 2.0 port. Push the switch to update the bios. It should update without booting. Be sure to set optimized defaults when you boot into bios.

A truly revolutionary hardware-based update solution. USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way ever to update the BIOS! It allows users to update new UEFI BIOS versions even without hardware such as a CPU or DRAM installed into the motherboard. Just plug in a USB flash drive containing the BIOS file, and press the BIOS Flashback button for 3 seconds with the power supply connected. The UEFI BIOS will then automatically update without requiring further interaction. With its new, complementary Windows application, users can regularly check for UEFI BIOS updates and download the latest BIOS automatically. Hassle-free updating for the ultimate convenience!

Thanx for providing that, should come in handy to many, a nice feature many mobos could use

Implemented on many ASUS Z77/Z79 boards, mostly higher end and a couple of Z68 boards too. It is a nice feature.

Very nice decsription/write-up

Can you clarify which Ram Module(s) did you actually use for this test?

Did you perform this with these memory specifically?:DDR3 2800 (PC3 22400) F3-2800C11D-8GTXD ?

From the looks of the CPU-Z shot at 2800, it looks like it, GSkill will prob be in this evening and can verify

I figured this, but then I saw the CPUZ SPD screen, the XMP profile is for 1333 (XMP-2666).

On my 2400 Sp, there is a XMP-1200, I can run it any faster, will try the settings shown though and see. Which means if he used the 2666 Kit and got it to OC to 2800, then i hope I can get my 2400 kit to go to , well maybe 2600.

Thanks for the reply.
