New rig arrived and I have been adding hard drives and setting it up. With all BIOS drives installed now there are two little things I wish to undertsand.
I have 3 screens - a 30" Kogan surrounded by two portrait orientated 24" screens. Not matter which Display port I plug the main Kogan monitor into on a GTX 1080 Ti card - on boot the screen is inactive and instead the 24" screen on the left goes active and shows the BIOS if I open it up - all rotated 90 degrees which makes it hard to read. Its not until windows starts booting that the Kogan comes to life and gets a signal it can understand. ANy idea why and if this is correctable?
Secondly - I have 2 * 16 GB 3000MHz Corsair Vengance RAM inserted - and XMP (extreme memory performance switched on) and the default is 2133 MHz and profile 1 says 3000 MHz. But in Windows performance monitor I always see the RAM speed listed as 2133 MHz. What is need to be done to shift the memory to its rated capability? Is WIndows just trying to underclock it until it sees a heavy load place on the system? I have never seen the RAM shift to 3000MHz mode - so I am sure I have misunderstood a simple BIOS requirement to activate it always / when needed?
