PC Boots normally but doesn't boot on restart and can't enable XMP because it makes the PC not boot.

Just to clarify; you can always overclock your RAM. 

But what we want to check is if there are additional XMP Profiles available which just make it easier than manually overclocking. 

 

Now I believe this ram actually only has a single profile (at least all the Vengeance series Ram I have does which is all DDR4 despite being XMP2.0)

So I think you're best just to do this manually. 

Can I suggest applying the XMP Profile 1; then go into your DRAM Frequency / Multiplier and drop it down from 6400mhz to 6000mhz before you save changes and reset. 

That should still apply all the additional power configs and timing adjustments without having to go through and set everything manually. Lowering the frequency should stabilize it.

Hi first time builder here,

I just build my new setup but I'm running into some issues. The PC works great but for some reason whenever I need to restart my PC or enable XMP it doesn't boot.
It either gets stuck on DRAM or VGA (the LED stays red). I've tried searching the internet for help but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this?

Here's my setup if it helps:

  • PSU - NZXT C850 Gold v2
  • Motherboard - Gigabyte B650 AORUS ELITE AX V2
  • CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D
  • RAM - Corsair Vengeance RGB - 4x16 - DDR5 - 6400 MHz 
  • SSD - Samsung 980 Pro 2 TB and Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB
  • GPU - GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 4070 Ti SUPER EAGLE OC 16G

I'd appreciate any help from people with more knowledge than me on this.

Have you tried updating your motherboard's chipset and BIOS?

Don't tell me to upgrade. I would've done so if I could.

Your motherboard officially supports up to 5200MHz, and even if it can unofficially run faster memory, it most likely won't reach as high speeds with 4 sticks as it will reach with only 2.

So, I'd start with XMP off (and make sure its off and running at JEDEC base speed), and one RAM stick, check if it restarts OK, then 2 sticks in the slots specified by the manual, then 3, then 4.

Okay so I updated the BIOS to the most recent version "F30".
Now it does restart thankfully.

But I still can't run the XMP 1 profile for 6400MHz. Does anyone know of a good profile for my setup? To still get more speed but maybe not max?

Check which profiles are available to it, either in BIOS or using something like CPU-Z (SPD tab). It should display the profiles stored in the memory sticks themselves.

Okay i'll try it out see if it works thanks!

Hi thanks for the advice. 

I tried it on 6000 but that gave my pc a blue screen, so now I put it on 5200 because someone previously mentioned that my motherboard supports up to 5200 and it seems to be working fine for now.

So thanks alot!! 😄
