    Question [Motherboard & RAM] XMP Profile doesn't work

    Hello,

    I'm here today to resolve a problem between my RAM and my motherboard. Actually, both my BIOS and my OS don't recognise my RAM correctly.

    My stuff is :

    OS : Windows 10 professionnel x64

    Motherboard : ASUS Maximus Hero VIII (BIOS version : 2202)

    GPU : ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 O8G

    Alimentation : Corsair RM750x 80PLUS Gold

    CPU : Intel Core i7 7700k

    RAM : Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 32GB (4 x 8GB) 2666MHz

    The problem is that in my BIOS and in my OS, I only have 16GB of RAM detected. (In my BIOS, the RAM's cadency is at 2133MHz instead of 2666MHz.

    All my slots and my RAM modules are OK.

    So I tried to enable the XMP profile in my BIOS to get the good values of my memory, but when I boot, I have an error message : "Overclock failed" and it asks me to change my configuration in my BIOS.

    Does someone here know a solution to my problem?

    Thanks in advance, MrBougaerreip

    PS : English is not my first language, so it may be a little confuse :P

    There are two things you might want to consider. First, if you have another set of RAM sticks, you can try them and enable XMP. If that doesn't crash, it could mean that the RAM modules that you have are faulty.

    Second, if you've tried the above method and still crashes, it could possibly be the motherboard's BIOS. Try updating the BIOS and see if there are any improvements.

    At the moment I feel stupid, but sooooo released.
    I didn't know that a new version has been released, and it worked.
    Sorry for the post and thanks for your rapid answer

    For those who encounter the same problem, the 2202 version looks like not working and the 3201 works.
