Memory Settings
Corsair Vengeance 1866MHZ 9-10-27 1.5V
AMD FX8320 Black Edition
GA-990FXA-UD3 Ver4
With 4 sticks of ram it will not work. I have set everything to the specs on the memory dozens of times. Tried to up the voltage, didn't work. I pulled2 sticks of of ram and it will set to the 1866 and I can even overclock the CPU. This one has me baffled.

Ok try 2 sticks at a time run them for hours if they run fine pull them put them aside then try 2 more sticks do this again if they run fine for hours no errors its either your board or the ram.

Go into the BIOS and manually set the freq to 1866, then the base timings 9-10-10-27, 2N or 2T, DRAM volatge 1.575, and raise the CPU/NB voltage to 1.21 and give it a try

Does that board have a xmp profile in the bios? he could also try that.

It's AMD - might have DOCP or EOCP, but sounds like sticks don't want to play

I have XMP IN all my systems they are amd but don't laugh they are also biostar boards but it works had a hell of a time with my 990fx and 6100 in XMP PROFILE but after some trial and errors got it to work. But not all boards are the same and I am sure they are far better boards then what I have in my systems.

Do I keep the XMP turned on or disable it?

Yes ON the XMP you set and enable it and leave it on that way your ram - Memory is set to those settings.

thank you, but that did not work. I got a screen that said " boot failure" and it listed these settings: Current CPU speed: 4000.Mhz
Current BCLK: 200.98 Mhz
Current memory speed: 1399.90
I loaded it back with optimized defaults so I could boot into Windows
