ROG Maximus XI Hero Wifi Double Post?

Hey guys I have question for you pros on here.

I dont really know anything about overclocking but I wanted to see if I could set my Corsiar Dominator Platinum on a XMP profile in my mobo bios. Everything is pretty much set to default, I have set it to the first XMP profile and saved it. When it restarts it starts off fine, but powering on from a cold boot, it turns on for a second or two and then turns off and starts again.

I am wondering if this is normal and if it is fine if I leave it like this, will it harm anything on my rig.

Thanks in advance.

if loss of power to psu then yes it will power on for a second then off then power up as normal. If you just shut windows down and then power button it should just power on as normal

Isee, well if I just shut down my rig and wait 5 minutes and power back up. It will power on for a second or two and then turn off and power up normal.

If I turn off the XMP profile and shut down myu rig, when I power up my rig it will just power up as normal, it does not do the double post thing?

Thanks in advance.

Few things you could try:

1) Turn MEMOK off
2) Try the second XMP profile. If you are running XMP 1 then try XMP 2
3) Set ram to manual, and manually input all settings : Frequency and CL timings.

ok you have a memory issue then by the sounds. Best way is to set ram manually and not thru xmp and tweak from there. Voltage and timings manual and speed set at default and try then bump speed up to what the ram is suppose to overclock to. It may be a voltage or timing thing once you start to head toward the specs of the ram speed. Good luck
