    Errors after setting AI Overlcock Tuner to XMP.

    When I set AI Overclock Tuner to XMP my asus formula x won't boot, and has a code of b1 on the board. I've got 2 x CorsVengLPX DDR4 4500 C19 8GB Sticks - I'm wondering if it's because it doesn't support 4500mhz.

    It runs fine when set to Auto.

    CPU is 8700k

    What frequency does AUTO run at?

    That board has 4133 listed as max frequencty supported...and for that you probably have to work for it.

    For anywhere near those frequencies, you'd need to look at 2 DIMM boards such as the Apex. 4 DIMM layout you can realistically expect no more than 4000Mhz. This is why a bit of research can go a long way with these things.

    Flagship memory kits such as the one you have purchased are more of a PR stunt, and should only be of appeal to benchmarking enthusiasts. You can either tune the memory at a lower frequency and reduce the timing sets, or purchase another memory kit. Top end, 3600-3866 is preferable for this board if wanting the best chance of plug and play with XMP.

    As stated above you will probably not achieve 4500mhz on this board, a couple things you can try with the kit you have
    Set to XMP then manually enter 4133mhz
    Manually enter all settings for 4133mhz
    VCCIO and VCCSA voltages are the settings you may need to manually enter for memory stability
    I currently have a 4133mhz kit on a X Code with 1.38 vdim, VCCIO 1.22v, VCCSA 1.23v , these 3 voltages manually entered (AIDA64 reads VCCIO and VCCSA higher than manually set so don't be surprised as monitoring software is only so accurate), VCCIO and VCCSA may need up to 1.3v it is a process to test after you get the system to boot you need to test for stability, to high voltage can also cause instability
