  1. What CPU do you have?

    Do you have the latest BIOS?

  2. Sorry for the incomplete details.
    yes I do have the latest available BIOS (ver.0309) and latest Bios Uefi Utility for this Motherboard that is OEM as well didn't need to upgrade.
    specs:
    Asus A88XM-A/USB 3.1 Mobo
    A10 7890K Godavari 4.1 GHz (4.3 Turbo)(Currently OC'd to 4.5) Stock Wraith cooler

  3. First try XMP/DOCP to see if you can reach the rated specs 1600 C10

    If all good, you can try 1866 C10/11 then 2133 C11

    Also, do you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

    Yes check your inbox I've already answered about the BIOS ver. and I can't find any newer BIOS. All my drivers and utilities are up to date. OS is Win 10 x64 (with Creator's Update and latest build).
    I have never tried XMP/D.O.C.P. on a RAM before. i don't know how to do it. I only have D.O.C.P./ manual O.C. modes in AI Tweaker page in BIOS and i can't find XMP over there. However, under SPD information, there is XMP related info but i can't really change any settings there as well, its just ram SPD info page with DIMM slot info. Can you guide me OC'ing RAM?

  5. I'm trying to guide you but you need to test and provide results so I know what's going on.

    Did you try DOCP? Did you try any of the settings I mentioned? I can't help if you don't tell me anything.

    No, I only know how to change the voltage of DRAM, CAS Latency and other timings and its frequency. I don't know what do you mean by C10/11. Never tried it before. There is no option of XMP/DOCP for RAM as well. UEFI BIOS Utility version 2.16.1242.

  7. Timings, try 10-11-10-31 or 11-11-11-31

    XMP/DOCP can be enabled under AI Overclock Tuner, the first option

    no, xmp isn't there...only d.o.c.p. which i've already tried!

  9. Did you try at a lower frequency?

    Need to find the highest frequency the system can boot properly.

    What, you mean cpu's or ram's ?
    Reply to LEOKAMBOJ
  11. RAM
    Reply to gskill support
  12. yes, I've twice checked. The lowest freq that my system can boot with is 1333 and the highest 1600.
    presently turned all the latencies to 11-11-11-31
    Reply to LEOKAMBOJ
  13. What happens when you try 1866 11-13-13-31? Did you boost DRAM Voltage or CPU-NB Voltage to see if you can push higher?

    Which slot do you have the memory installed in?
    Reply to gskill support
  14. yes, I've tried 1866 11-10-11-31 instead of your mentioned values for latencies (which i don't will bring any change) and still my system can't boot properly beyond 1600. I have been using <1.5v Cpu V and DRAM @ stock 1.5V ( because idk why the system won't let it go beyond that under any case). NB voltages also tweaked a couple of times with 1600 and 1866 both but at the latter freq. System just shows "Overclocking Failed!" at the boot post up.
    Now, that i have the MSI GTX 1050 Ti GAMING X 4G edition card, even 1600 hangs up the machine at boot logo display most of the times and the only way to go to desktop safely as of now is being polite and humble to the voltages and ram freq., by only giving a factory overclock increment to 4.3 Ghz (that my cpu came with printed on box as its turbo boost).
    So, because of discrete card now, there is 7.9 gig RAM available and I don't feel as if o.c.'ing would help me get that sole performance boost that I'm expecting from this world's best flagship apu of 2014!

    ..and I'm currently running the memory stick in slot B1 (i think) which is second black slot...previously (when i was busy o.c.ing it) it was in the last/grey slot (i.e. B2).
