4 sticks of DDR5 6000mhz crashes windows

JonasOver

Hello,

I bought a new PC with an ASUS ROG Z690F motherboard, Intel i9 13900K, ROG STRIX 4090 and 4 sticks of 16 GB RAM Kingston Fury with 4800mhz base frequency and up to 6000mhz with XMP.
When enabling XMP windows crashes regularly, especially when playing games. When disabling it, it runs perfectly. My question now is what would be the best course of action to make the system run with 6000mhz. Just wait a few months and update the bios? Would a bios update anyway fix this at some point or not? Or what's the best course of action to get the system run with 6000mhz for the RAM, keeping in mind that I don't necessarily need this speed at the moment but would like to access it at some point.

Any advice and/ or help is very much appreciated.

Thanks

It is likely you have 2 memory kits, each 32GB, but you should not combine them. Here is the definitive guide:

Thank you for your answer. That would make sense. I don't know what the company I bought it from built in. When I want to remove two sticks of RAM, is there any way I can see to which RAM kit the sticks belong, with a serial number or something?

Probably. Just check the slide of the memory module. There is probably a serial number which should match.
