    XMP is an Intel thing, but I believe AMD has their own version which basically does the same thing.

    Some boards like ASUS list it as DOCP, but it reads all of the same tables/timings.

    My board has XMP baked right into the BIOS, and so do a lot of the other AMD boards....?

    My 3200 kits is running at 2933 XMP Profile. Gonna wait a few more BIOS updates before trying for 3200 since it's working fine right now.

    I actually saw that in a youtube video. It doesn't apply to all boards. It was one of the major channels.

    I am going to roll with 2400Mhz until I will upgrade to more RAM. Then I'll buy 3200Mhz RAM. I just couldn't afford any faster RAM, I was already pushing my budget. Even with trading in my old parts, I am glad I got the 1600 because initially I was going to get the 1500X.

    If you're doing that, you need to replace the 2400mhz ram when you plan to upgrade to 3200mhz ram. You can't expect the 2400mhz ram to run at 3200mhz speeds.

    I've bought 2400MHz RAM in a kit of 2x4GB because that was all I could afford.

    When I have the money, I will replace the whole kit with faster RAM (preferably 2x8GB).
