Now, putting the system together was fine and I got it to Post on the first shot. But when I changed the profile for the memory to the recommended xmp profile to make use of the 2133 oc ( profile number 2) the system was unstable and would not boot. I then unplugged the power supply, and removed the memory and pressed the clear cmos button to clear the bios. Then after putting it back together and going into the bios to change the settings for the memory, I no longer have any XMP profile options, and am stuck at 1600 on the memory. But when I use the system browser utility in the bios, it recognizes the memory and tells me that there are 2 XMP profile settings for it. I don't understand what happened. If you guys could help enlighten me it would be great. First build and I am scratching my head
Here are some shots to show you what I am talking about.
Halp! lol so i also tried running lucid mvp, and it errors saying that there is no igpu, but the 3570k has the integrated intel hd4000 chipset. so yeah, idk what the deal is, I am going to take the whole thing apart and put it back together hoping that maybe the problem is that the chip just isn't seated correctly, who knows but can't hurt right?
I have exactly the same problem, and simillar setup, except i have blue G.Skills (but same 2133MHz) mobo ASRock Z77 Fatality performance, bios 1.30
had been able to set in bios xmp settings but now they are gone..
Tryed to revert to older bioses 1.30>1.20>1.10>1.30 but still with no effect.. What might be the problem?
