Solved Install question - Z68X-UD4-B3 Tags: Gigabyte Motherboards Last response: August 30, 2011 10:38 PM in Motherboards Share jacob August 18, 2011 11:34:43 PM I've already installed my Z68X and things are fine, but in talking to a store tech today, he said I should have enabled AHCI before installing Windows, I did so after and it seems fine. He also mentioned to me to enable XMP which I don't see any option for at all. I'm running an i5-2500K with 8G of Mushkin Stiletto RAM. http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Silverline/996770.aspx I'm a plug'n'play kinda guy, is there something I should be doing in BIOS settings to run my rig properly and well? Suggestions, tips, etc....? Thanks.

It should be in there. jacob August 30, 2011 2:08:33 PM Best answer selected by jacob.

Ask ! Get the answer jacob August 30, 2011 2:09:21 PM Found out my Mushkin Stiletto memory doesn't have that capability, hence no XMP in BIOS. Not sure if it's a great loss or not, but hey, got a good deal on the memory. Thanks for the help though.

That RAM holds to the official specs, hence doesn't need it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
