PC won't reboot after setting XMP settings in UEFI / BIOS

Hi!

I recently completed my first build:

I tried setting XMP settings which will set the RAM to 3000MHz, which should be possible since this is the max. RAM speed advertised. However when I save & restart in my UEFI I get a black screen; I suppose it's unstable and not restarting, since my PC is still on.

I was hoping someone could help me with fixing this.

Regards,

BL

  1. 3000 is a overclock setting and not guaranteed to work without some tweaking.

    Ooh I didn't know that, thought it was the speed the RAM was supposed to work at .-.

    I'll just keep my RAM running at 2166 MHz then.

    Thanks for the quick reply!
