Problem with XMP

Hey guys, I’m having a problem with XMP, when I turn it on at 3200mhz the pc works for about 10 minutes and then suddenly freezes and shuts down, but when I run it at 2133mhz 1.23v it’s all stable. I tried reseating the CPU, updating BIOS, reinstalling windows, setting a higher voltage, but nothing helped. Is my memory controller screwed? I’m running a ROG STRIX Z490-I gaming mobo with an i5-10600kf.

Could be the memory controller, could be the Ram itself since certain motherboards are particular with what ram its okay with, could be a simple voltage adjustment  like running it at 3200 at 1.35 or 1.4v and seeing if that works. All comes down to what is gonna be the most viable.

It's most likely the motherboard setting stupid subtimings, you'll have more luck setting up your timings manually.

So do I just play around with the timings?

I have the XPG Spectrix D50 2x16gb 3200mhz 16-20-20 1.35v

Yes but these primary timings are probably fine and it's the subtimings that are probably wrong. 

You can likely force it to work with more voltage but best bet is to find out your exact memory IC and search for what kind of timings are typical for it.

By the way, when I try to run XMP at 3200mhz with only ONE stick, it works flawlessly

Reviving this topic, the PC has been running with both sticks for a month now, but only at 2133 Mhz and 1.23V. If I use any other combinations, it may run for a few hours or even half a day, but then it’ll eventually crash. 

Any ideas?
