asus prime z790-p wifi, 4 sticks of new ddr5 6000mhz 4x16gb T-Force, can't run XMP

Level 7

I have 4 new sticks of ddr5 6000mhz 4x16gb T-Force, my old single 16gb stick of ram was all I had in the computer before I bought 4 new sticks of the exact same ram

I have updated the bios with a flash drive properly in ez flash utility 3 with the latest bios for the mother board

I can only use the ram in CS2 if XMP is disabled or my game will crash everytime and even restart my computer sometimes

If XMP is enabled it crashes, I've tried XMP1 and XMP2, both crash the computer and when CS2 is running

So with XMP disabled it sets the ram to auto, and runs at 4000mhz, instead of running at 6000mhz when XMP is enabled

For some reason when loading on optimized defaults it sets everything to auto, and XMP is off. Then everything runs fine.

But I want to try and run it with XMP, that way I get the most out of my ram

Any ideas? any help appreciated

Hello, @TravisDB 

According to the image you provided, the memory part number currently installed is FF3D532G6000HC38ADC01. 
However, on the PRIME Z790-P WIFI QVL, it supports the 2*16 specification, not 4 models in a kit.

Please make sure that all memory modules are from the same validated memory kit and avoid using DIMMs from different memory kits, as stated in the "purchasing and installation guide.":

Ensure that all memory modules are from the same validated memory kit. Do not mix DIMMs from different memory kits—even if they are the same brand and model (e.g., two DIMMs each from two different memory kits). Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in a failure to boot and compatibility issues. In particular, the stability of a system with mixed DIMMs cannot be guaranteed when XMP (Intel)/D.O.C.P (AMD)/EXPO (AMD)/AEMP/AEMPII is enabled. For example, enabling XMP (Intel)/D.O.C.P (AMD)/EXPO (AMD)/AEMP/AEMPII to speeds above DDR5 4800MHz or above DDR4 3200MHz could result in an unstable system.

Meanwhile, please note that this forum is specifically for discussing gaming models such as the ROG or TUF series. 
We recommend visiting ASUS Zentalk forum, where there are dedicated moderators who can assist you with the difficulties you are facing regarding non-gaming series products.

Thank you.
