  1. New faster memory but bios uses old XMP settings from pulled memory


    I bought some new faster memory for my Asus Maximus VI Hero. When I pulled out the old memory and inserted the new memory, the bios still showed the settings from the old memory. I have XMP enabled and the bios does show the correct description in the profile of the new memory but it does not change anything. Luckily this new memory has no problem working with the XMP settings of my old memory.

    I know I can get into the DRAM settings and manually set the timings and voltage to the new ram, but I should not have to do that. Maybe I should see what happens if I load the optimized defaults... *Confused

  2. Memory Issue.

    Go to motherboard manufacturer site, go to Support section, download memory compatibility list. Check your memory.

    If you'll find it in list go to step two: at memory manufacturer site download memory manual.

    Compare memory settings in manual and in BIOS.

    X58 and memory XMP help please!

    When you are setting xmp in Bios, are you ensuring that everything (timings, volts, multiplier etc) are set to auto and you are on "standard"? And have you tried manually setting everything with divider instead of using xmp? As I said, I don't use xmp but am running my memory at 1900+.

    New faster memory but bios uses old XMP settings from pulled memory

    Refused to Post after XMP Setting in BIOS


    Hi,
    Yesterday, I installed all mobo and other drivers plus various supporting software in my new build (#2 in spec with BIOS 1801). Four in the morning, all was done and I decided to end by going into BIOS to set the memory according to its 1200 MHz Factory XMP. I pressed the XMP button in the Bios and selected 2400 and then quickly "Save and Exit". In front of my tired eyes, for a short moment, I noticed "1.65 V" and something else, which seemed it should not be there. Believe XMP says 1.2 V. It did not post at all. Left it on for a few minutes, restarted a couple of times, but nothing. Turned power off on the PSU and went to bed. Today, I turned the power on, and it booted nicely all the way into Windows. Rebooted and reset BIOS to factory defaults and then changed what was necessary to get my SSD to work and PWM for the fans. Now it works nicely again.

    In the BIOS, I noticed the XMP button had not only changed the memory timings, but also fiddled with the CPU settings.

    Anyone having heard of something similar. Surely, the XMP button should only change memory timings?
    If I try to change the timings manually, I guess I do not need to change anything else? Do you think I should set the voltage to 1.2 V rather than leaving it on auto?
    What happened? Did the PSU internal protection kick in, you think?
