Heat and Crashing Issues after Installing Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB Memory


Recommended Posts

I just built my first PC and in reality don't know much what I'm talking about when we get into details on anything.


Everything has been running fine for a few weeks, but I decided I wanted to sync my RAM within Icue as I wound up with several corsair products, so I swapped out my Gskill trident 2x16gb for 4x8gb corsair vengeance pro. I went into the bios and enabled xmp to get to 3200MHz, as it was defaulted to 2137 when I first checked. Since doing that, my PC has been running hotter, and even crashed a few applications, which never happened before doing this. I read that others had a similar issue, but I don't have the exact same setup and these posts are over a year old, so wasn't sure if a bios update may have addressed it. I don't know if I could do damage by trying to perform these steps if it's not what was required. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


My specs are:

Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite

AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Corsair Vengenace Pro 4x8gb 3200mhz (CMW16GX4M2C3200C16)

Corsair RM750x PSU

EVGA Geforce RTX 2070 Super


Read this: The following settings solved his issue:

- Enable XMP

- Set DRAM voltage manually to 1.35V

- Set RAM multiplier to 32x

- Set the first five subtimings manually to 16-18-18-18-36 (the same as XMP would) important!

- Set the sixth timing (tRC) to 56 instead of 54 as XMP would important!
