i've now built the rig and the ram defaults to running at 1333 at the moment which sucks a bit so when I engage XMP it goes right up to 2133 by just increasing the ratio.
This seems to work after a reboot and three bios health check confirms it's now running at this speed however after a longer period of the PC being off, when it next starts it says that there was a problem and it reverts back to 1333.the
PC seems stable enough with low temps and no crashes when it's on so I don't know why it's resetting it.i've also o/c'd the ram to 2400 which is the recommended speed according to gigabyte with the link given earlier but this also suffers the same fate as when set to 2133.
Do I need to up the voltages before trying to o/c the ram to 2400 or anything else? Anyone got a guide on overclocking ram, CPU and GPU?
thanks for your help!
I'm away at the moment but I remembered that I also tried this for 2400 mhz by disabling XMP and using the multiplier set to 24x and that this appeared to work fine and after a reboot the status screen confirmed that it had worked and now showed 2400mhz with all the temps looking ok.however after another reboot a bit later it looked like it took longer than usual and then didn't switch on but just rebooted again and said there was a problem with the last boot and that it defaulted.from the status screen I can see it revered back to 1333 mhz again.cud it be I need to increase voltage to memory as this was only at about 1.2V
