Ok, so finally got it working.
I had memory in slots 1 and 3 instead of the recommended 2 and 4.
Switched everything over, the bios took a while to recognize things but once it did everything booted up. I am now running xmp.
I have the same issue.
2 x 16 GB GSKILL 6000mhz , cl40. If I use xmp 1 or 2, system is unstable , locks up, bsod and sometimes it won't even boot. With XMP off, everything is fine ( bios 1003).
Hope they get this fixed asap. If it needs more voltage, please add some in the profiles. I know they can't test every memory kit in existence but it looks like it's like that with almost every kit.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never seen such a poor generational launch as 12th and ddr5
itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s crap. I myself have a pair of 16gb g.skill ddr5 sticks that are supposed to run at 6000mhz , they will boot and they do run, sometimes for half an hour other times for an hour - but they arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stable
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never ever had to manually tweak voyages to get an XMP profile to run, the memory has board QVL certification, I shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to go into voltages.
12th gen has been nothing but aggro, the first board I had was an Asus hero, it would only run fine at 811 bios, any bios over that and the gpu performance halved both in synthetic benchmarks and in games, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s was a bloody nightmare and no one could tell me why.
I tried the gpu, a Strix 3090oc, in two other machines and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perfect. But only with the 811 or 803 bios would in run properly in that hero board.
I then bought a 12900ks and had to upgrade to the 1403 bios, so I basically had to bin a Ã‚Â£500 hero boardÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦*
So I then bought an Asus extreme board and the bios is 1403 and the gpu runs as it should
But the g.skill memory just isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stable unless itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s running at 4800Ã¢â‚¬Â¦..ffsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
This set is a Samsung based 6000 cl40 kit
So now out of desperation IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ordered a Corsair dominator platinum 6200mhz cl32, this is a Hynix based ddr5 kit and from what IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m reading Hynix are better than Samsung at ddr5 it seems.
It arrives next week and if it is no different than itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a case of waiting for Asus to release a decent bios with the proper voltage settings for the qvl appraised XMP profiles they advertise
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a total f up, the whole 12th gen release really with ddr5.
I know as an early adopter it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t always smooth, but I shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to spend hours tweaking voltages and problem solving just to get a stable system, that crap is supposed to be done before itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s releasedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
So on Tuesday the Corsair Hynix kit will arrive and if that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be a wait for a decent Asus bios
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t honestly think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll buy an Asus board again now**
