Specs:
i7-6700k
F4-2800C15D-16GTZB (2x8, currently at 2133)



I cannot seem to simply turn on XMP and have the system run at the rated 2800.  I get the blue screen shortly after booting.  I am new to this area so apologies for 'dumb' questions.  I am at the latest 1.8 BIOS. (I even tried going back to 1.7 as a test - still the issue)  Could XMP not running smoothly be the BIOS?  if yes, (and here is my new-ness) could I set XMP, then tweak timing/voltage? or should it all be manually?  Again, I have not done either and I am a bit unclear what to actually do, or try.  I see so many settings involved.  I could not really find a good Memory Timings for Dummies site/post.

Side note - I have MemTest86 this to death lately and all pass on the stock SPD 2133.

So can the BIOS be the culprit?  Has anyone heard this before? and guidance?

Thanks,

  • Yes, that is a picture of me as the Bud Knight.

What version of the BIOS do you currently have?

It is 1.8, the latest on one of the 2 MSI sites.   Interesting it is not on both...  Assuming it is an over site.

It is on both MSI and G.Skil lists as compatible with the board.
These modules added recently they were not there when the board came out.
I suggest you contact MSI and G.Skill and ask them which BIOS they were tested with.

You should be using your RAM modules in DIMM slots 2 and 4?  Is this correct for you?
