Rog Maximus Z690 Hero Missing XMP3 profiles?

Level 9
I only have the option for for Manual or XMP I or XMP II. I do not see any options for XMP 3. When looking at the bios of other Z690 motherboards I can see they have XMP 3 and the option to choose 5 different XMP 3 profles. I know my G.Skill memory F5-6000U3636E16GX2-TZ5RK is XMP 3.0, so I'm not sure why I'm not seeing the option to select it in the bios? I've updated to the latest bios as well

There is no such thing as an XMP III Profile......only I and II and Auto.....would love to see a pic showing the XMP III you speak of 😉

Suggest you do some research XMP 3.0 doesnt mean XMP III Profile.

Respectfully disagree...I did do the research...:)

XMP III is supposed to add a 3rd profile along with 2 more custom profiles where you can save your own XMP settings....how am I the only one that knows this? Here's some light reading plus a couple of screenshots...

XMP I is the validated board profile that you will have seen on past generations. Every time a board is validated, this profile is the one used by the memory vendor and ASUS.

Since Z390, there is now the option to use the DIMM profile which is XMP II. These settings are not validated, so mileage will vary depending on the kit and CPU.

XMP II timings will be slightly looser depending on the memory kit. If you check within the UEFI or memtweakit, you'll see a difference in memory subsets.


XMP 3.0 refers to the technology’s iteration into DDR5, it’s not referencing any particular profile.

Weeeelllllll...XMP III is supposed to add a 3rd profile along with 2 more custom profiles where you can save your own XMP settings....Links to said info in reply to previous poster. Plus here's another link to an article from October that details the following

"XMP 3.0 will be introduced alongside DDR5 memory modules and increases the number of available factory profiles up from two to three. You can also add two personalized ones."

And this screenshot clearly shows the 3 factory profiles along with the 2 custom you're able to save over and rename

I'm guessing I'll need another Bios update to increase the compatibility with G.Skill DDR5 or XMP 3 in general. It looks like the board cannot tell the RAM is XMP 3.0 otherwise I would at least have the option to save/rename 2 of my own profiles.

Your definitely the man 😉 I'll have to watch for that XMP III Profile on my Apex .... 😉

It's down to the memory vendor how many profiles they are adding to SPD. Normally the higher the bin, the more likely it is they will give the user options. You can check your SPD profiles within CPUZ > SPD tab.

XMP I remains the profile validated for your board.

After five months from the launch, Corsair iCue isn't able to write a custom XMP profile on Asus boards but it can do it on other boards from other vendors.

Isn't there a partnership between Corsair and Asus?

Why there is no such features for Asus boards?

I've asked Corsair About this and this was their reply...

Me: Just asking... when is the main fork of ICUE expected to get the XMP Memory Manager added?

Corsair Albert: iCUE with XMP Manager Preview can be downloaded here - just need to type "XMP" into the search bar. This feature is currently only compatible with DDR5 Gigabyte and ASRock motherboards.

We are still progressing on the feature.


That was back near the start of April (had had asked once before this date as well). Strange how they chose to implement the "XMP Memory Manager" for Gigabyte & ASRock first whilst there's a plugin for ASUS motherboard support.
