I have seen a few XMP profiles that didn't hold up in use. Try bumping up your memory voltage by 0.1-0.2 volts.Strange, games are crashing constantly again only when I enable XMP profiles for memory (Trident Z DDR4 3600 C14 2x8GB)
But the crashing stops if I disable the XMP profiles.
Anyone know why this is?
That should be the case IF your particular ram kit is also on the qvl list for your motherboard. If not, some tweaking is often needed.Yes I tried Memtest. Ran for 2.5 hrs, 0 errors out of 4 passes.
Ok, I can try bumping the voltage up.
But I thought the point of XMP profiles was that it is stable from factory on those settings?
Yes. Set your memory to whatever the manufacturer's spec is, in the BIOS.By 'spec clocks' do you mean manually setting the rated speeds and timings etc in the BIOS?
100%The ram monster strikes again. So many threads with issues that boil down to problems with XMP. Glad to hear you got the crashing fixed, nothing more infuriating then spending a ton of money on a new toy and it doesn't work.
So weird, after the latest windows updates today the games are starting to constantly crash yet once again and I didn't change any settings for RAM, CPU or the GPU at all.
So I decided to drop the RAM frequency from 3600 to 3200 for now as a test, and that once again seems to stop the crashing.
But I am starting to get baffled by this issue now because I gamed for about 8hrs over 2 days with the RAM speed @ 3600 just a few days ago without a single crash then it just started crashing again, mostly after the windows update.
