I will have to run more testing to determine stability but as the cpu and ram is rated for 2133 I'm confident saying I should be good at 1866. Seems maybe the xmp profile is off on something, just not sure what. Maybe all the timings need to be lower?
    Lower, as in they would need changed from the amazing current 9-9-9 to say 10 or higher.

    It didn't boot using 1600 11-11-11-30, CR 2, 1.50v or 2133 11-11-11-30, CR 2, 1.60v ?

    Did you try using 2133 XMP Profile 1? If so, how'd that work?

    Anyways it appears you're gungho intent on OC'ing those sticks seeing you're at 1866 9-9-9(decent OC) so I'll take my leave and leave you to your own now that you've found something that's working for ya.

    It didn't boot using 2133 11-11-11-30-1 or 2 at 1.65 (several sources including G.Skill has suggested bumping voltage to 1.65 for 2133).

    Neither xmp profile would work, which I also found odd. My intent is still to hit 2133 in some form and I'll continue to do so. Once I find a way I'll make sure to post it in the event anyone else has this problem as it seems a bit common. I was reading on newegg another buyer was having this issue using different ram.

    Manually setting to 11-11-11-30 at 2133 didn't work either. I had my beloved tablet out while editing stuff so I'd have my references. I've noticed in general AMD approved ram has lower cas/ras hence bringing it up.

    also an odd and personal question, do you happen to be located on the west coast?

    PM'd due to personal.

    Back to being a WIP. I finally had time to play Titanfall and about 3 mins in system BSoD's and forces a hard restart. Reset using the button again and plugged in all drives. Guess I'll have to be patient for this one. Asrock replied to a review I posted on newegg and I tried their settings with no success.

    determined that ANY change in ANY speeds including northbridge and cpu will cause boot issues. I was planning to up my fsb to 133, which in theory would up the 1800 limit to something higher and in turn allow me to hit 2133. I also tried upping just the multiplier for the fsb with the same effect. I will now have to look into voltage settings. The only time it did a normal soft reboot from the bios is raising GPU speed from stock to 800.

    Three settings I've withheld due to your seeming madness posted here.

    In order of what I feel importance/results would be most noticeable:
    CPU/NB Voltage - Feeds the memory controller
    NB Load-line Calibration
    and maybe APU Load-line Calibration

    I haven't seen you mention one single post that you monitor voltage.

    Too, I really have a hard time keeping up with you in your posts. One post is "here' with next one coming hours later and seemingly "there".

    You're not the only one who has trouble keeping up with my caffeine fueled madness. :D At this point I'm thinking that the continuation of the thread will be purely for updates and I've started to maintain notes (on paper!!) about anything and everything I can try. I'm not quite to face smashing a wall just yet but I'll make sure there's a youtube video of it. :D

    Me at this point feel you most likely have either a weak memory controller corrected by pushing and additional +0.05 - +0.1v into CPU/NB Voltage setting _OR_ it's power/psu related and one or both of the Line Load Cal's should correct or new psu possibly. But I'd at least move those settings before considering a new psu.

    I know. You're tired of seeing me repeat this line.

    I'd reset the BIOS back to all Stock setting, bump CPU/NB by +.05v, and concentrate on/at either using XMP or manually setting timings using the XMP timings in those screenies. If that didn't get me closer I'd look at Line Load Cal, but be careful there as they're not how you would imagine them in relation to anything what's presented for their options relates to voltages and which way you might think adj'ing them takes/adj's said voltage.

    Caffeine fueled allnighters? Nope. I haven't a clue ............ Ha. Boy oh boy do I remember those nights.

    Did you try setting all the memory latency settings to Auto, from top to bottom in the DRAM configuration screen? Just as an experiment to see if you can get the memory to run at the speed you want?

    I'll do that when I have memory problems, and if that works you can see what the Auto latency setting are (like 14 14 14 30 2T, or other fine values...)

    As the 'dawg said, memory controller voltage can help.

    Based off additional researching, other forums, etc this is seemingly a wide spread issue but I'm not sure if it's with the processor or the boards selected. Assuming that cpu-z is reporting accurately my timings are 9-9-9-24-33 command rate is unreported. I've also read about increasing the VDDA voltage.
