Review: Kingston Fury Renegade 5600 MT/s CL36 ECC R-DIMM


The importance of the XMP profile:

BIOS settings:

We can’t stress this enough, but your memory kit ‘s parameters are not automatically set once you’ve installed it. If this is the case for your processor, it’s not so for your memory kit, and you’ll need to go through the BIOS! You can then configure it manually, choosing the right frequency, timings and voltage for your kit. For ease of use, we advise you to activate XMP (Intel) or DOCP (AMD) mode in “AI Overclock Tuner”, so as to set it up automatically.

Without this, your performance will be impacted in all areas, and you’ll end up with a kit that doesn’t exceed the CL40 frequency of 4800 MHz. So we’re going to activate our XMP profile directly in the BIOS. Many of you have asked us about the difference between XMP I and XMP II profiles. XMP profile I loads the default profile, while XMP profile II sometimes optimizes a few more subtimings.

As you can see from the screenshots above, once the XMP profile has been activated, the settings are automatically detected. The frequency rises to 5600 MT/s, timings are activated and the voltage rises to 1.25 volts on the VDD and VDDQ.
