    In general I like your ram, unfortunately it's not the rams fault this time, it's the motherboard. Well I can't just blame motherboard alone it could be 80% Mobo 20%CPU fault.

    I had a similar ram than your Corsair LPX only with 100 mhz more, 4500 19-19-19. Unfortunately it didn't do 4500 but I could run it at 4400 CL 17-18-18 on Gene so in my case it was the CPU that didn't allow to achieve 4500 Mhz, the IMC on it.

    Next time I would advise you to check the motherboards supported RAM list first, before buying ram. The big flashy sign on the box 4400+ is quite a bit misleading.

    P.S. You can try to return the RAM and get one that is supported by your motherboard. You will save some money too probably, as the 4400 I assume isn't cheap.
    i dont know what u mean by supported ram list ..
    the motherboard says support DDR4 4400mhz ..
    so i went and typed that in, and that ram poped up , thats how it went down literally ..

    here is the ram i have
    https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego...tab-tech-specs

    what do the timings mean
    15-15-15-36

    i havent done anything besides turning on xmp .. then choosing my overclock speed.. im sure i can do some more tweaking to get even more somehow, but even then 4000mhz feels crazy fast in games

    When you google your motherboard : Maximus XI Hero
    You will get a link to Asus web page, top right corner is button "SUPPORT"
    When you open that press "CPU / Memory Support"
    Next "Memory /Device Support"
    and open :

    ROG_MAXIMUS_XI_HERO_SERIES_Memory_QVL

    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...231.1554212468

    That's all the ram that is supported by the motherboard

    Pay attendion to the last colums - 1/2/4 Dimms

    As you can see that highest speed rams are only supported in 4 DIMM mode

    P.S. Hope that clear things up, ask away if you have more questions.

    P.S.S. This is default memory profile :

    SPD Latency 15-15-15-36
    SPD Speed 2133MHz
    SPD Voltage 1.2V

    What your memory will run without applying manual or xmp overclock

    when i ran asus suite optimization ... i got it to work , but i got this after the overclock
    Your cpu is severely limited due to temperature , and it is not advisable to run at its rated specifications. Check your cpu cooler or your ambient temperature.
    My cpu temps are always 25-33 C idle and 50 under load .. not sure what they mean.. i have a h150i Cooler on it ?

    so i purchased this ram , ill sell these corsair ones ..

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    these seem to have ok speeds .. main goal to run at 4133

    also when i install this ram , do i manually change it to the timings from the ram listed.
