Ask ! Get the answer ubercake June 7, 2012 12:34:03 PM Under the Performance->Memory Overides->Performance Memory Profiles, choose Profile 1 for your XMP profile. That should get the RAM to the 1600 speed if it's XMP enabled RAM. If not, you'll have to go to the RAM manufacturers site or contact them directly to manually set the voltages and timings. m 0 l marnu123 June 7, 2012 12:48:34 PM Isn't this gonna hurt my warranty.
