Does the board support Xmp mode in the memory section, if you have the option.
It should read the settings of the memory can configure it auto if enabled.
I build a PC maybe every 2-3 years, and each time is a learning curve. I read up on xmp profiles, new to me,
and found that yes, the ECS Z77H2-A2X board supports two XMP profiles. Profile 2 did indeed load the settings.
Whew! There was a time delay posting back while chasing down another (unrelated) issue, but with that sorted,
the box runs nicely.
Thanks for the assist!
