A Beginners Guide: What is XMP? and How To Enable Your RAM's XMP.

After buying/installing new RAM into your computer it’s important to know how to enable your RAM’s XMP profile (eXtreme Memory Profile) otherwise you’ll be missing out on performance you paid good money for. This video is designed to teach those new to PC DIY what an XMP profile is, why you want to enable your RAM’s XMP profile and how to do it. It’s actually a very easy thing to do but when you’ve never done it before I understand how it can seem a little intimidating. I hope to set you mind at ease by saying there’s nothing to worry about; as you follow along with this guide you’ll be able to easily get your RAM’s XMP profile enabled and have your new RAM running at full speed in no time.

    Cant find Ai Tweaker in my bios for some reason, doesn’t have it as an option. i have an Asus G20CB not sure why I cant do this. Any thoughts?



  2. Iraine Macalalag on November 22, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    What if my ai overclock tuner still in auto and my memory frequency is already above 2133mhz it’s 2666mhz already….its the top speed of my ram



  3. Jack Beck on November 22, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Love the Video man great job on trying to explain everything even to the people who dont really no what ram is. I was scared about entering the BIOS and trying to get the most out of my ram as i didnt want to cause any problems with the PC. Great job again.

    Agent Smith voice style ?



  5. Ammar Samir on November 22, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    Thanks a lot, when I turned xmp on, the ram only works at 2666 instead of the supposed 3200 and I just couldn’t understand why, thanks to you now I know it’s because of my core i3 🙂



  6. AquaJuice on November 22, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    I have 4 sticks of ram both 8 gb a stick and I did this 3 months ago and it worked I Just bought new ram Today All Ram sticks are 8gb but when I tried enabling XMP it would restart and restart again and keep the same speed of 2133 which was not a problem previously anyway I can fix it?



  7. Fasho1a on November 22, 2021 at 6:41 pm

  8. Kyaw Zin Htet on November 22, 2021 at 6:41 pm

  9. Tojás Sárgája on November 22, 2021 at 6:42 pm

  10. Zen Rodrig on November 22, 2021 at 6:42 pm

  11. alixdoom 2 on November 22, 2021 at 6:43 pm

  12. Sir Saint on November 22, 2021 at 6:44 pm

  17. Saad Abu Al-Haj on November 22, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    You didnt mention how lots of RAMs dont operate at their advertised speed, which makes this video useless for lots of people 🙂



  18. trihard on November 22, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    I have a crosshair vii hero and a ryzen 7 5800x but whenever i put my ram to 3600mhz it just restarts a few times then resets to 2133mhz. Everything seems compatible from what ive seen and i have enough power any answers? Would appreciate it



  19. xd2player on November 22, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    I got issue, when i save and exit and reboot the pc it wont actually start, i mean i can see that the pc is on but the monitor stay off, and the only way to start it again is to force shutdown with bllding the power off button and then start it, but in that case the settings wont be saved… Any idea?



  20. All About Life on November 22, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    Thanks for the vid! It really is very helpful…



  21. Datunakh on November 22, 2021 at 6:59 pm

  25. TeamWake-N-Bake on November 22, 2021 at 7:06 pm

  26. Marco Mendoza on November 22, 2021 at 7:09 pm

  28. L2sRUSH on November 22, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    I activated it but when I clicked save and exit it when into a boot loop turning off and on 3 times before finally turning on except the ram was still at 2133mhz. Is there anything I can do?



  29. Regan 198 on November 22, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    Will this help with my FPS I was running 250 done a update for the driver n I lost 120 FPS but can’t reverse it



  30. Tom O on November 22, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    My asus z590 motherboard is running the ram for my i7-11700k at 2666ghz but I’m afraid to turn XMP on I heard people saying it will void the CPU warranty, is basically overclocking, etc and even if your cpu does support higher speeds (which it does, 3200ghz) i’ve heard you should configure the RAM manually since XMP is sometimes buggy and won’t configure the RAM settings right.



  31. Windy on November 22, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    I did this now my pc doesn’t work



  32. D on November 22, 2021 at 7:19 pm

  34. Ohma on November 22, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    Hey I’m still having issues, when I set my ram to it’s XMP profile (3200) it’s GSKILL trident z 3200. When I set the xmp profile my pc just keeps power cycling and then it doesn’t post/boot. Just keeps bringing me to bios and defaults the ram speed to 2133



  35. xxgamerfreakxl on November 22, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    Yo my Mainboard wasmaking weird sounds when i’m trying to overclock it to 3600Mhz



  36. Franoo on November 22, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    and if I have a RAM which has 4200 MHz and the motherboard keeps a maximum of 4000mhz and the XMP profile automatically gives either 4200mhz or 4100mhz and then the computer turns off. Can you help me somehow?



  37. qSoulfly on November 22, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Can we do it on intel 7th gen ?



  38. Fractal Of Life on November 22, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    I have a ASRock motherboard what is the difference between AUTO XMP and profile one? I’ve been searching the internet and no one seems to mention what the AUTO setting does.



  43. Iraine Macalalag on November 22, 2021 at 7:30 pm
