    I'm not claiming I'm a pro in OC:ing or similar, far from it. But getting the RAM timings and speeds right can have a HUGE impact on performance, even at much lower CPU frequencies.
    That's the problem, I have good RAM, but it hates any changes beyond XMP.
    When I use baseclock to up the CPU speed a tad, I need to keep an eye on the RAM speed, and adjux´st it back down to as near as XMP speed as possible.

    Oh, that's interesting. Wonder why it does that...

    Can you skip XMP altogether and do everything manually with better results? It's a lot of work and a lot of numbers to keep track of, I know...

    I don't want too
    But I do know it's better to do so,
    and I should,
    and probably will,
    as I have a txt copy of my BIOS.

    Yep, it's easy to be lazy when XMP does such a good job. Great that you have a txt copy of your BIOS, that helps a lot. Then you can change one value at a time and see what happens.

    Can you store multiple profiles in your BIOS and copy them? That helps a lot if you can.

    I wish I had the money to buy an OC:ing rig. I miss those times. Back in the day when I doubled the CPU and RAM clocks on my Abit BP6 dual Celeron MB and got it stable, everything was simple. Now it's quite a bit more involved. But darn that system was fast then.

    Yep a bunch of profiles in the BIOS and additional if I want on a USB stick.

    By the way I just changed my RAM settings for 5GHz and 5.6GHz, as ASUS will show the current settings, on the left, even when you switch from XMP to manual(changes made on right side).

    Now to play around

    That's awesome! I didn't know Asus displays the old and new values side by side. That makes it even better.

    I live alone, and don't have or need a car, so that saves money.
    Also I really don't go out anymore, and I hate traveling, so spend vacation time relaxing at home.
    I don't drink very often(more of an anti-social, social-drinker(see bold font).
    That leaves lots of money for upgrades and system building.

    lol, the RAM configuration options is a rat's nest. So much to tweak that it doesn't fit on one page.
