Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600MHz doesn't work at 3600MHz

Go to solution Solved by Voy,

So... it was me being stupid.... 

 

I actually read the Manual... dual channel configuration should go into A2 B2 slots.

 

All working fine now.

Hello,

 

I have Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600MHz (2x 16GB) 

I am using it on ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS with Ryzen 5 5600X 

 

When I activate XMP profile for memory PC will not boot, going straight into DRAM Error, same when I set 3600Mhz speed for it manually.

 

It does boot up when I set it to 3200MHz

 

My friend has same board and same memory (just RGB version) and it is working fine at 3600MHz

 

Any ideas if it is fixable  or is it possible that mobo or memory is faulty?

I'm not really sure, but could it be that they're currently not receiving enough power to run at 3600?

Try setting the speed and only run 1 stick at a time. This will help you sort out if one of the sticks is not hitting its projected speeds.

 

Make sure your bios on the motherboard is up to date.

 

Make sure the ram is in the right slots and is able to properly run in dual channel since this mobo has 4 slots.

 

Keep us posted!

You got me thinking!

So I was just testing it in dual channel mode all the time, A1 B1 slots.

I tested each stick in A1 alone, XMP didn't work

I stick them in A1 A2 slots and it works!!!!

 

Now, my question is why??

 

And now it is running correctly but in Single Channel mode...

 

Or maybe I should try to run it in A1 B2 ?

Super happy it all worked out! Yeah the variations between motherboards can be frustrating, even for experienced PC builders.
