  1. Yh, I do think that is the case. Looks like I'm buying a new memory kit at some point Lesson learnt
  2. Okay, it did help but same issues have started to happen again. I tried using the DRAM Calculator on the memory kit and at Safe mode it wouldn't post at all even at speeds of 2800mHZ. Do you think that because it is aimed for Intel Chips this could be the fundamental issue? @Pickles - Lord of the Jar
  3. Each day I am finding out new stuff with my PC, and today that would be Legacy and UEFI. In my motherboard settings I noticed that I had the option for Legacy or UEFI, that was set to legacy. Now should I make a switch to UEFI (I think it is has quicker boot speeds?), and if I do make that change will that wipe my PC of all data?

  4. I did that; I used one stick at 3000mHZ, and then did some tests and am now onto the 2nd stick. Running some tests right now. I will probably have to see if over night the issue happens again (takes multiple failed boot attempts before successfully booting). Will message this thread again tomorrow.
  5. Ok, I'll give that a try then; put one stick in and try, unplug the PSU for 10/15 mins and boot at 3000mHz.
  6. I have done MemTests and then have had no issues. GUVI's response would make sense I think. It's the first 'fact' that I have come across that could be the reason why would you agree?
  7. Ahhh, ok then; so the being the PC noob that I am I would need to buy another set of AMD optimised RAM then. This must be the problem then because my motherboard works absolutely fine and I don't think there are any other components I should pin it on?
  8. Hi, I am giving to give up with my PC at this point in time. It is my first build and the specs are listed at the bottom of this post. My RAM kit is Corsair Vengance LPX 2*8GB and on the tin it is desrcribed as 3000mHZ (15-17-17-36) and DRAM Components are Micro Tech and 8GB D-die. Using the A-XMP profiles, originally, I was able to use the 2800mHZ profile with no problems. If I went above this it would be able to run, but not consistently. This was the same with 3200mHZ. Leaving the PC off over night or turning off the PSU, the PC would not boot for the first three of four tries and only be successful after this powering on, then off, then on procedure. I resorted to using the 2800mHZ profile because of this. For the time being, I used the 2800mHZ, until last weekend when I decided to have a look at this issue. I ram a memTest at 2800mHZ and there were no errors. I then did some research on DRAM OC and used the DRAM Calculator 1.7 and Thaiphoon to create a group of settings for 3000mHZ (at SAFE). This profile did not work for my PC at all and I had to reset the CMOS to get back into the bios. Can anyone help with this issue? It is driving me up the wall!

  9. I appear to be out of data by four patches according to MSI. Noticed that one of them had increased memory compatibility. I will do an update later today; always a bit worried with bricking a motherboard.
  10. I believe with XMP, this was my first PC build. Having done some research, some people suggest looking at the DRAM Calculator and manually clock it? Would you suggest doing this? Note: Is it really OC if I am running the RAM at the speed on the box?
  11. I have a RAM kit that is specified at 3000MHz from Corsair. When I run the PC at 2800MHz the PC has no issues whatsoever with turning on, but when I set the RAM to 3000 (or greater) in the BIOS a weird issue happens; the PC wont turn on the first time and on the motherboard the symbol for CPU issue lights up, but if I reboot the PC, straightaway, the PC will turn on with no problems and run the RAM at 3000MHz (or higher e.g. 3200). I am wondering if there is a solution to stop this from happening and allow my PC to turn on normally at the speed of 3000MHz.
