    Default Problem over clocking ram

    I have an Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard with an Intel Core i7 940 @ 2.93GHz, with Corsair Dominator GT 12GB (6x2GB ) 240-pin DDR3 1866 ram Timing 9-9-9-24, Cas Latency 9, Voltage 1.65V. The motherboard came with a utility called Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, which I used to overclock the ram to it's full speed of 1866. But ever since I upgraded my system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 the overclocking is no longer working. I can still get in the utility and I can turn in the pre-configured setting for 1867MHz, which is what I have been using. But when the system reboots it comes up saying the memory is running at 1066MHz. When I check the bios is says the target speed is 1866MHz. But the system shows the memory running at 1066MHz during the post and while Windows is running. I have tried to manually configure the settings in the bios to the settings the utility uses, but the system wont boot if I do that. There is a pre-configured profile saved in the bios for 1867MHz. When I change it to that the system wont boot either. I have tried numerous times to adjust the settings with no luck. I would like to figure out what I need to do to get the memory to run at 1866MHz. Any one have any thoughts?

    You need to enable the XMP profile in your BIOS. Enter the BIOS, click on AI Tweaker set AI Overclock Tuner to XMP this will set all parameters of your RAM (timings, voltage), and should work for your RAM, if not set the AI OC Tuner to Manual and chose the DDR3-1866MHz in DRAM Frequency option, then enter DRAM Timing Control and set the parameters of your RAM 9-9-9-24, DRAM Voltage set to manual and set 1.65V as a value.

    PS. to PureOC
