Go back into the BIOS and you should see the change reflected there as well as any tool you use in Windows displaying the RAM speed. marnu123 June 7, 2012 12:22:03 PM Where do I get the XMP profiles? I've basicly been through the whole BIOS.

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. marnu123 June 7, 2012 12:48:34 PM Isn't this gonna hurt my warranty. And what about stability. Some boards see this as overclocking. I dont want to oc since my previous motherboard's BIOS got burned that way ubercake June 7, 2012 1:17:59 PM I don't think so as 1600 speed RAM is supposed to be supported by the i5 3550 and you aren't changing the bus speed of the processor: http://ark.intel.com/products/65516/Intel-Core-i5-3550-...(6M-Cache-up-to-3_70-GHz) Contact Intel support to be sure of this one and post back here.
