Can't enable XMP anymore

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys! I sold my gtx 1070 to upgrade to an rtx2070 super recently and after 3 weeks the new gpu showed up.

I installed it about 2 hours ago and everything works fine(drivers installed etc.). I was curious and went into the BIOS of my motherboard (below) to see if settings were maintained after that period of time. I was looking around when I noticed that my RAM wasnt running xmp and that I couldnt find the setting to enable it which i previously could. I thought that my BIOS was updated somehow and rolled back to the initial BIOS version (F1). Nothing changed... I was manually changing clocks, voltages and latency to match the xmp of my ram, though when I opened cpuz to my surprise, one of the modules xmp clocks were listed and it showed that it is xmp compatible while the other module (exact same module) doesnt have XMP. I concluded that somehow the xmp profile of one of the ram sticks was erased but I want to experiment tomorrow further cause it's late at where I live. I shall try removing one ram module and running the other and the same way around  to find which is faulty and maybe resolve the issue if it's a bug. Do you guys have any other ideas or dealt with something similar?

thanks in advance

Are you 100% sure you got the right BIOS file for your motherboard?  Even the wrong version no of the 'board can prevent a successful flashing.


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

I've really never head of SPD's getting messed with, except intentionally.

 

Can you provide Thaiphoon dumps for both modules?

Just had a look at the Support pages for your 'board & it doesn't show that specific RAM as 'officially supported'...

You can see that one of the modules isnt programmed for xmp. RLY idk how it got erased

Didn't say it wouldn't work, but Gigabyte didn't claim 100% reliability.

Probably need a hard reset/clear CMOS & try again.

Did you buy them as a matched pair, new?

Looks like it did in fact get corrupted. Weird!

 

You can either start the RMA process, or just manually set in the XMP parameters from the first module.

I bought one with the rest of the pc and the other one later

Can you link a guide on how to do the xmp flashing because I couldn't find one online?

That would be enough to stop them working correctly with XMP, sadly... matched pairs are always recommended.

I don't reccomend flashing DIMM's. It's much easier to manually set the speed and timings in BIOS.
