Help Overclocking 6950x and DDR4 3200MHz?

Recommended Posts

I'm a very happy owner of:
CPU: i7-6950x

Memory: 32g DDR4 3200MHz Corsair Vengeance (4x8g)
Water Cooler: Corsair H115i
MOBO: ASUS Rog Strix x99 Gaming LGA 2011-v3
Power Supply: XFX 1250W PRO Series
GPU: GTX 1080
HD: SSHD (2x2T) and 480g SSD Kingston UV400

And I never did an overclock in my life, I think it's good to point this out.


So, I'm trying to overclock my memory to 3200MHz, because the MOBO runs it at 2400MHz at default, my processor to 4,2GHz and cache ratio to 3,2GHz. Here some pictures from my BIOS "AI Tweaker". The temperature is fine, around 75 degree celsius.

The problem is that I can't get it to stabilize. I'm trying to run Prime95 stress test and after 10 minutes or so my computer freezes. Could you guys please give me some advices where I can adjust to make it perfect? Could it be memory? Could it be too much or too low voltage?

Thank you.

What happens when you enable the XMP profile for the memory? If they are 3200 sticks, it should be in the XMP profile.
