Just built system recently all parts ordered from newegg,
windows 7 sp1
Corsair DDr4 2666Mhz
System overall works fine but having issues "enabling" XMP profile or any XMP profile for that matter. after XMP is enabled system will not boot, not sure whats going on or where to go from there? Also unable to overclock my CPU. Bump up the cpu to 4.3 on 1.3volts and unable to boot. Unable to do any overclocking. not sure if its the board or some setting im missing in the BIOS/UEFI BIOS ANY HELP is great
I'll try these things but starting to think i have shit hardware lol i just want a bit more performance and my ram wont go over 2133mhz
Ahh the 5xxx series does not like 2666 and above.. it gets very unstable and at the point we are in ddr4 2400 is an already overkill clock... This is a documented issue on the x99 platform
You can play with the voltages
Definitley OC slowly.. clearly your system does not like what you have done so far
I agree!! Happy to say I have fixed my issue!! tried 2 sticks of ram then back to 4, same issue i updated to beta f7 bios same issues..wasnt able to overclock cpu or ram..finally made an rma/refund ticket with newegg this morning and while at work i cant stop thinking about what i havent done. I downgraded bios to f4 version released sometime in sept 2014 and BAM! took few minutes to boot but after that everything works perfect. 4.2ghz OC @1.2volts and memory XMP profile working @2666mhz.
Thanks for all the responses and help guys!!
