Hi all, you guys have probably seen similar questions but I couldn't find any real information on my board/RAM problem.

I have an Asrock z77 extreme4 motherboard with 8GB Corsair Vengeance Low Profile memory in dual channel mode.

Advertised when I bought it at 1600mhz however in the BIOS it reads 1333mhz, there is a category in there "OC tweaking" within that I can change the XMP profile from "AUTO" to XMP. Having done that I went back to the BIOS after saving settings and it still reads 1333mhz.

My other option is that I can change the frequency of the RAM from that category to 1600, however I don't have the experience of doing that and whether it's that simple to just change that save and quit. I'm not familiar with changing voltages or any of those things and I wouldn't want to just change the frequency without changing anything else in case I mess something up.

Would anyone be so kind as to instruct me on how to do this?

I've figured it out (I think) The DRAM frequency was set to 1333mhz after i changed the XMP profile (I thought it would adjust accordingly) So I just changed the DRAM frequency to auto after setting the XMP profile and on restart it's 1600Mhz.

By all means if anyone would like to add anything please do.
