CMX12GX3M3A1333C9 no XMP profile


Recommended Posts

I just received two sets of CMX12GX3M3A1333C9 12GB memory (total 24GB) and installed them into my Intel DX58OG motherboard which is designed for triple channel memory up to 24GB. Neither the BIOS nor CPUZ (see attached JPG) show XMP profiles. It only shows JEDEC profiles 1 thru 4. I need to manually set the timing values in the BIOS rather than using a XMP profile. The memory is working fine at 1333MHz, but I am wondering why ther are no profiles in the SPD of these ram modules. The Corsair website specification for this memory says XMP.


I previously had 8GB of dual channel CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 memory installed and it did show XMP profiles in the BIOS and in CPUZ. This memory is form the same family as the triple channel CMX12GX3M3A1333C9.


Are these memory modules correctly programmed in the factory?


Thank You

Those are only 1333mhz modules and do not require an XMP profile since there is no overclock and anymore SPD would be considered default. ... If they were 1600mhz modules there would be. So for there to only show 4 SPD tables is normal.


The old set would have because most CPU's made back then would have only supported 1066mhz so 13333mhz would have been an overclock.


EDIT: I'm not so sure those should have an XMP profile, but it is listed on the "Overview page" Which I don't understand. Unless the person in charge of the website is using a template for all of the memory modules and overlooked that line and It's a typo.


But I really don't think those should have one ..Let Technobeard or Ramguy see this and get to the bottom of it. But the information is conflicting from the Overview page the Tech specs page..


EDIT to my EDIT:LOL DARN IT!...Now you got ME wondering if there should be one, or if your BIOS is wrong, or if the modules are programed without one. Sorry !
