    Memory settings advice for 3000Mhz sticks on maximus Xi hero board

    I'll be installing 2x16Gb crucial XMP 3000Mhz sticks into this board.

    Do I need to make any changes in the bios?

    Does the motherboard somehow 'read' the memory sticks and automatically adjusts bus speed, multiplier without user adjustment or intervention?

    Hi MoonMan2

    XMP is a preset built into the memory that sets your ram to its rated specs, in the bios you set the AI Overclock Tuner to XMP and you're done. One draw back is, it often times over volts the cpu system agent voltage and cpu vccio voltage which can contribute to higher cpu temps. After enabling XMP, set these two voltages to 1.15v which should be enough or up to 1.25v if needed.

    It is also easy to set your ram manually which most prefer.

    That's very useful to know.

    Could you please be so kind to tell me the step-by-step procedure of BIOS settings to alter/enter after booting up for first time with these memory sticks installed?

    I'd like to do it manually.

    Sure, please list the specs of your memory or post a link to it.
