My pc won't turn on after XMP

Are these 2 compatible
MB = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012NH074G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Memory = https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0134EW7G8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It won't run the XMP file, after enabling XMP my monitor won't turn on and each time I force turn off/on my pc using the power button I keep getting the overclocked failed, and the MHz resets back to default 2133mhz. (I did tried to w8 for my monitor to turn on for 10mins + and still nothing).

I searched in newegg that the motherboard can support it, the mb allows 3400mhz memory and it was listed in motherboard manual also. Idk, I can't seem to put it to 3000mhz, the highest I can put it in stable MHz is in 2800mhz with auto settings and uses 1.520v TT_TT :bounce:

    Sometimes the higher clocked memory modules , need the CPU to be overclocked a little to run a full spec.

  6. I think I figured out the problem, there's a red light in one of the VGA's led, I think my monitor sucks lol. x.x
