Ryzen 5 1600 and G.Skill Trident Z RGB Memory cannot be overclocked

Every time I try to use the XMP profile on my trident z ram, the computer won't post. The XMP file runs at 2933 Mhz at 1.35V. I reset the CMOS and run the ram at 2666 Mhz at 1.35V, still no post. So I gave up and don't know what to do. With the ryzen 5 1600 I tried to overclock even just to 3.6 Ghz running at stock voltage (I forget, not at home right now) yet the computer still won't post. The voltage in the BIOS for my cpu isn't even adjustable!

Thermaltake toughpower 550W Gold psu

  1. You could up the voltage a very small amount. I suggest trying each at 1.4v but no higher. If it work then try it at 1.375v. Try to keep the voltage low as possible. Also make sure you have the latest motherboard bios version.

    I will try to change the ram voltage and play around with that, though with the cpu I can't even adjust the voltage so I don't know what to do there.

  3. Have you checked if the memory is on QVL? It matters when clocking it.

    I haven't, I will check that when I get home. But I may have found a solution anyways, when I got the motherboard I didn't update the BIOS (I'm new to pc, okay) to the latest version. I thought it was included in the drivers I had downloaded but it seems I was wrong as I found the BIOS update on their update. I'll get back to you.
