BIOS Memory settings not being saved.

Level 13
Still learning this latest BIOS, but I've struck a slight problem, can anyone help me with this.

I'm wanting to change the timings from default, to the XMP profile for my CMD8GX3M2A 1866C9 dominators in the BIOS.
However when I reboot the post stops at 55 which according to the manual is a "memory Initialization error, Invalid type or none compatible speed". I have to switch the system off, cause reset brings it back to 55. When I start up again and check the BIOS settings everything is back to default. So yea, I'm sure its just some other setting that needs changing but just what?
I ran memtest for 1hr and thats ok.

Currently configured @ 9 , 10 , 9 , 27 , 35 , 2T. Can anyone assist me to obtain this profile?

Hmmm...not sure what to make of that...XMP 1778 instead of 1866 :confused: and now you're running 1404MHz that is just above 1333 but might just be a BCLK step up of default settings...

I don't know enough of the ins and outs of AMD systems...Myk and Zka17 will be able to help more...
