Best solution Flyfisherman May 30, 2012 7:32:33 PM Hi, Depending on what mobo you have and BIOS, what you do is in the BIOS setup meny find the settings for the memory and activate the memory XMP profile. The system will then use the memory's inbuilt XMP profile and it will run @1600MHz Tech spec: http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-32gb-quad-channel-ddr3...
