After two months of waiting, i finally received my Corsair Vengeance DDR5 5600 2x16 memory.
ROG STRIX z690-F motherboard i7 12700KF MSI SUPRIM X 3080ti Windows 11
First of all, i know it's not on the QVL for my motherboard, but I'm happy to confirm at stock settings the memory runs fine and passed a Memtest with no errors, with the ram currently sitting in slot 2 and 4 on the motherboard (A2 & B2 i think, the manual suggested it that way).
Now as i understand it, my ram is only currently running at 4800Mhz speed.
With respect to my motherboard, could I please get some guidance on what settings I need to change in order to have my ram running at 5600 Mhz rather than 4800mhz?
I've not done this before, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
**update** I'm now using the xmp II profile that comes with the ram which is running at 5600. So far so good, passed the memtest with no errors.
When I check cpu-z. I see a dram reading of 2800, and the individual reading for both sticks of ram under xmp is 2800 also. Timings are 36-36-36-76. Given the ram is running Dual mode, I'm assuming this is what I'm supposed to see and the xmp profile is working?
