  1. Enable XMP memory profile from bios
    This will auto set rams to optimized settings.
    Thanks

  2. I checked in the bios and couldn't find it.

    Does AMD 990xa MOBO support Intel XMP?

    Go into bios and change the memory speed.

  4. When you install ram into a motherboard the ram will be set at the motherboards default speed for ram no matter what the ram is rated at. You do need to go into the bios and manually set the ram speed to it's rated speed.

    Extreme Memory Profile is an Intel feature and is not present on an AMD motherboard.

    No it doesn't. Unless Intel AMD merge in to one company :lol:

    I had to update the bios to get the option to change the ram to a higher speed. When I change the memory speed a warning comes up stating that the voltages are not optimized. What would be the fix for this? Also I noticed that the timing is not what it is supposed to be according to the details on newegg... but I have never fooled with the timings so I haven't the slightest clue as to what I should change.
  7. In the bios is where changes are made relating to voltages and the ram timings. Depending on the motherboard that you have the features to change voltage and timings may be worded differently. If you have the users manual for your motherboard you can look in there to get some idea as to where things are located. The stock memory voltage will be 1.5v or 1.65v depending on the model ram that you have and you should be able to run the ram at 1866mhz on the stock ram voltage. Because you have an AMD board you will have to set these things manualy and once you do and get the settings to where you want it would be a good idea to save the settings as a profile in the bios.
    A good course of action would be to go to the memory brand that you have forum site and see what's being said there for settings and voltages.
