There isn't just some magical way to make it work.barost777 date=1582380730 said:Hi guys I have a problem with my MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC and Corsair vengeance RGB x4m8x3600c18
I have the newest BIOS and I could set up ram up to 3400mhz with xmp do I need to change timings if I used xmp profile?
How to unleash the extra power?
Btw I have ryzen 3600
On website this ram is supported and msi managed to set up it to 3600 on single and double channel.
If you haven't read parts of this thread, you probably should.
Getting fast RAM speeds isn't just about changing to XMP and getting it to magically work. Not all CPU's (especially AMD) will just support it with any given RAM out of the box. Often, given AMD's poor AGESA code, it requires manual tweaking to get it running well at high speeds.
Latest BIOS isn't always the best option. For the X370/B350 series boards, the older BIOS's are actually more stable, and operate much better than the newer ones. The same could be said for many of the newer X470/B450 bios's as well.
Realistically, you'll probably be manually tweaking voltages and possibly timings to get it to work at the rated 3600 speeds.
Or just be happy with 3400, save yourself 2 to 12 hours, and not be as fast as the DRAM possibly can support. (If you can't tell, I'd choose that option.....as things deteriorate over time, you'll be tweaking again).
