    just because the memory can run at a certain speed doesn't mean the memory controller on the CPU can
  2. ok as far as i know that is best overclocking processor 1156 has to offer so i just wander why they invent 2200MHz boards for them
  3. because overclocking is all chance. some chips can run the memory at that speed, it just seems yours cant. further, i think you need to read up more on oc'ing, cause your setting could be what you need to adjust to make it work.
  4. ok thanks ive done some reading but i thought bios XMP overclocker was automatic to optimize everything and make it stable automatically
