Mean Aerodynamic Chord

I can't get passed 4.2GHz!

Depends on your Mobo but you should have an option to set the memory profile in bios somewhere like the Extreme Profile here:

So all I have to do is find that and change it to 2?

Actually no - on my system XMP 2 does not work (too aggressive) as this was set during initial testing. So go with profile 1. If you run CPUZ you can see the timing settings for your profiles under the SPD tab. Actually now I'm running a reliable 4.9ghz OC with XMP 1.

Hmm, I can't find that on my BIOS. Here's what it looks like:

 

 

 

 

I see the XMP menu but all it says is Disabled or Enabled.

Yes, I saw that, but it doesn't have profiles, only a Enabled or Disabled. Where do I set the profile?

Then it would be enabled... some mobo's only have on or off.

Just enable it. There's only one XMP profile. The one in that CPU-Z screenshot labeled as XMP-1600.

Okay, I enabled it. My "Adjusted DRAM Frequency" increased from 1333 MHz to 1600MHz.

Of course it did. That's what your RAM is rated at. Boot into windows and post the same CPU-Z screenshots again, or check your timings are now 9-9-9-24-2T

Yes just enable - also another thing I had to do was jack up the mem voltage to 1.65v (for 2133ghz) but since you are running 1600 you can just use the default which is probably 1.5v. A sure sign of a bad memory config is when you hear a whistle when you OC fails. Its the only thing I know for certain when I'm trying OC settings.

Personally when I set XMP I don't touch anything mem related after that...

 

I'm curious if this helps the OP or not...

Hmmm... 4.5 @ 3.355 volts BSOD'ed after I started the small FFT test on Prime95. IDK if this helps. but here's the BSOD message.

 

"A clock interrupt was not recieved on a secondary processor withing the allocated time interval."
