I just got my new ram and here it is: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820104520

So I replace it with my old ones which were 2x4gb Corsair vengeance 1800mhz. Everything starts up fine, it says hardware has been changed... I go to setup to overclock as i follow the instructions here:
https://m.youtube.co...h?v=w4sx-GuY3CA

Not 100% sure about my timings so I just put it on auto. Then I put my frequency to DDR3-2400 and my voltage to 1.65V. I then restart with all of my saved settings...

It turns on but no display and i don't see my GPU running. So then I restart and then it works and says, previous configurations could not be saved.

So I go back into bios and try every kind of voltage all the way down to 1.5V and restarting every time. I finally just put voltage on auto and STILL SAYS THE SAME THING. When I put back all settings back to default + OC Genie it works... I'm so confused... Help!!!!

:welcome: Hunter W

This is the RAM you have instilled, Spec sheet. > http://www.kingston....4C11SRK2_16.pdf   Not on the OC/list.

RAM, OC/memory list, > http://www.msi.com/s...l#support-ocmem

This is the RAM on the OC/list, Spec sheet, > http://www.kingston....C11T3K2_16X.pdf

It is possible that your present RAM will not run on the MB, 

In case you have to swap, this is what you need, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820104520

Your RAM should be installed in DIMM #2 and DIMM #4.

 

MB Manual, > http://www.msi.com/s...tml#down-manual

To ensure you have a stable platform,> Ensure the OC/Genie button is in the off position, > the OC/genie switch is set Gear #1 Default. > The Slow Mode Switch is set to Normal, Default.

it is best to set the BIOS to the Default Setting.

With the PSU turned off, > Press Clear CMOS button #1.

Start the computer and enter the BIOS.

> set the Date/Time/region.

> Go to the Exit Menu, > Select Load DefaultsConfirm Y,    Allow to boot to the Desktop. 

> Restart the computer and enter the BIOS.

> Go to the OC tab on the left.

Scroll down to and click Intel Extreme Memory Profile, XMP, > select  Enable, > Click Profile #1

> Go to the Exit Menu, > select, Save Changes and Reboot. > confirm Y.

 

Do you now boot to the Desktop OK?

Thank you iamm for all your help, but I've fixed the problem by just keeping the ram I originally bought and was able to set the frequency to 2400 and set all ram timings(except for the command number) successfully.
Thank you so much for your effort!!!
