I always have to take off a ram everytime i turn my pc on so it can boot. So what i do is I take off a ram and configure the dram frequency in the bios. I turn it off and put the ram back and thats when it boots, but once i turn off my pc at night.. The next day starts the same thing, it starts doing the same thing over and over and i have to configure the dram frequncy again and again. Please any suggestions? This is annoying.. Sorry for my bad grammar..

these are my specs: asus maximus vii hero, intel core i7 4790k 4.0ghz, corsair vegeance memory ram (2x4gb) 8gb, psu corsair series cx600. I dont have a gpu.

Hello

The system is not stable. Please list the settings used and part number of the memory.

Btw i have everything in the bios on auto so maybe its because of that. This is my first time building a pc with this motherboard. I have tried to disable everything and it still not working i dont know what to do

The memories are both 1600mhz so i put the dram frequency on 1600mhz and when this happens the bios changes itself to 1333mhz

Try pressing the Mem OK button once and see what happens.

Is the qcode led halting during the boot process and if so, what is the shown code when it happens? How old is your memory? I've seen older memory not work under xmp profile but once you change the frequency in the bios and save it the setting should be present when you boot next time.

Guys, i just noticed that it only boots with the rams on slots b1 and b2.. Also i was playing some games a while ago and noticed the fps is low cause of the memory slot changes. Everytime i put one on slot a2 and b2 it wont boot and thats how i really get my fps high. I tried MemOK and it didnt work.. Im using XMP i haved tried all dram frequency and still..

Try this.. put your memory in the black slots. A1, B1 methinks. In bios set AI Overclock Tuner to manual, Dram Frequency to 1600MHz. I am guessing that's what you have. Then set Dram Voltage to what on the side of the stick(1.5v probably) Next go to Dram Timing Control and set those to what's on the side of the ram. Something like 9-9-9-24 and, not sure but try 2 on the dram command rate. BTW these setting are all in the Extreme Tweaker section. Let us know what happens.
