Right CTRL + Right Shift + Left Alt and F2 in bios.
Overclocking menu.
System agent Configuration
Memory configuration.
You can set your timings there or gear ratio or xmp profiles.
Watch this video to about 21:37 it shows where it is.


I have HyperX Impact DDR4 32gb on xmp1 gear 1 ratio. Works great.

I have mushkin 32GB "3200Mhz CL16"... i have done everything this video said to do. XMP1 gear 1... and i enable/disabled dynamic timings and enable/disable auto overclock on the RAM/ it ALWAYS just reverts back to default settings. I hit f10 and reset but it ALWAYS just goes to default settings, it even says XMP1 is the default setting... i dont know what to do, i just ordered the hyperX 2933 RAM kit to see if that would work... any other advice????

i just tried gear 2 and it still wont boot with XMP enabled. I dont think i can run my ram at 1.35v and that would be the main issue. I just ordered kingston FURY ram with 2933mhz /CL 17 /1.2v. and hopefully that will solve the problem.

do you know if i can set the voltage to 1.35? I have a Ge76 RAIDER 11UH-053

If you have cl16 ram you need 1.35v. I have crucial ballistix 3200mhz cl16 with 1.35v. Mu manual settngs - cl16, 16, 16, 32, 480 on 1.35v. Mushkin have 1.35v on stock like crucial.
If you want use xmp first enable overclocking menu in cpu tab. Just enable it. Then in memory use xmp 1.

You have latest bios?
My ram settings with xmp:



I have the latest BIOS update from Nov 2021, and I go through these steps and MEMORY doesn't even appear as a feature when enabling the overclock menu. I just installed the Crucial Ballistix 32gb CL16 3200 RAM... whats going on??

My ram settings with xmp:
I have not upgraded my RAM yet (have to be sure my GP66 11UH supports XMP first) and I am at the same exact window as above but it lacks the "Realtime Memory Overclock [Disabled]" option. When I go into "Memory Profile" there's only the options of Default Profile and Custom Profile but no mention of any XMP Profile as shown.
Does that mean my Laptop does not support XMP??
Thanks for any advice you can give.

Stock ram don't have XMP profile. Check in CPU-Z.
My crucial ballistix:
Thanks for your help. I installed CPU-Z and I believe the "SPD Ext" is supposed to say "XMP 2.0" or something if the installed RAM supports it. But It's empty so I'm guessing that the stock RAM doesn't?

Just to clarify,do ALL 11th Gen GP66 (or similar MSI models) support XMP? Or does it depend totally on the model?

All 11th GP/GE support XMP profiles. Profile depends only from ram what you have
Thank you for the confirmation.

I'm relieved because I'm only like 97% certain and the fact that MSI Assist basically told me "ALL MSI Laptops do not support XMP" even though the forums literally prove otherwise.

Your earlier advice to others helped me a lot.

My new RAM has just landed in my country so I hope to get it installed before the weekend.

Okay I've installed the new RAM and made some changes to the BIOs, including enable XMP 2.0 (see below), saved and reset to Windows. There's no issues but is still running it at CL22, instead of CL16. How to I set it so it's running at the promised CL16?

Enable OC menu in CPU section. Just enable it.



And set Gear mode to 1 in memory menu
