Hi ihave been using 32gb of kingsteen beast 2400mhz memory at 2400mhz with XMP Profile 1 for months with no issue on my maximus formula vi

all of a sudden my pc will not boot in to windows at 2400 but will when the default 1333mhz is set in the bios

i did a memok, but when i go in to the bios it shows the xmp profile is active @2400, but on the post screen it shows 1333mhz.

the only change to my system recently was the upgrade to a strix gtx 680.

i have updated the bios for both the graphics card and motherboard

i have done numerous f5 bios defaults and numerous cmos resets

what is the proper prcedure for clearing the cmos

when i got this memory first i had issues getting it going, but it sorted it self out

It depends what board you have, most by moving the CMOS jumper pin to the "short" position.
What is the speed indicated via CPU-Z?
Don't use the XMP profile for now, manually input your base memory timings, frequency, and DRAM voltage in the bios.
