DDR5 XMP stability

Recommended Posts

Weird issue whenever I turn on XMP for my DOMINATOR DDR5 5200MHz C38 Memory Kit it gives an error in ICUE and won't be read. I'm just wondering if thats a sign of stability issues. I went ahead and rolled back the changes. I'm on an AORUS Z690 Master mobo, and it only had 1 profile for XMP. 

 

I'm just wondering if its the mem sticks are not up to snuff or if i'd be good if I just manually set the specs.

I too am having stability issues with DOMINATOR DDR5 5200MHz c36 first edition on gigabyte z690 master. I have tried manually entering 5200mhz and the xmp timing but keep getting bsod in windows 11. currently running 36 36 36 77 timings at 4800mhz ok hopefully they are not faulty and just need better bios

Do you mean the red triangle like marker in CUE?  That’s usually an initialization error but should not be affected by timings/frequency/voltage. Unlike the MB, CUE will never know if the XMP preset is active or not. Quit the app and restart it when this happens. On cue 4 that’s usually all it takes.
 

If this is an every boot type of problem, most conflicts are with other RGB software attempting to access the RAM.  You can set cue to a delayed start in the Windows task manager or manually launch.

XMP timings for FE should be 36-38-38-74, at 1.25v for 5200MHz.  4800MHz baseline SPD timings is 40-40-40-77 at 1.1v.

If the Aorus motherboards use a similar bios to ASUS, you may need to enable SPD Write setting before iCUE will "see" the memory.  For my ASUS bios, the setting was in the overclocking (Tweakers Paradise) section - once I changed "SPD Write Disable" to FALSE, iCue picked it up right away.

I have the timings now set to 36 38 38 74 but still they will only be stable at a max of 5000mhz, when trying xmp or manual setting of rated setting of modules i get constant bsod's relating to memory. I though that you were suppose to be able to change corsairs dominator ddr5 memory settings on the fly in icue or is that an upcoming feature. I have upped the voltage to 1.275 and still get BSODs with memory errors. Is it possible that these supposedly hand picked first edition modules are faulty. Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks for this! You are the only person to mention where the SDP Write function is in the ASUS Bios - my RAM was not showing in ICUE after I updated my BIOS to the most recent build, I thought it was an XMP issue (new bios build is more stable for XMP - before my computer would crash), but the issue persisted even after turning off XMP. It was the SDP Write Disabled function! 

All fixed now.

Mine is now also fixed, had replacement memory from corsair and these sticks work as specified. The first edition kit i had was faulty and nothing to do with my cpu. The new modules have samsung chips also which can run stable at 6000mt 36 36 36 77

I’m having the same problem with my Corsair Vengeance DDR5 5200. 
 

My system: 

Windows 11

Gigabyte z690 Aorus Master mobo

Intel I9 12900K

(2x16GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR5

EVGA RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra

 

To clarify, it will run everything fine at XMP 5200 until I start gaming- particularly COD MW. That’s when the restarts happen. My temps in XMP around around 36-37C using Corsair ICUE software. 
 

Im pretty upset that XMP 5200 isn’t stable. These sticks are certified at that speed. Should I RMA or is this a problem with all their DDR5 RAM?

If I was you i would create a memtest64 boot drive and run it to test the sticks at rated speed and go from there.
