Hey all !
Fist of all, here are my specs so you can follow along :
MSI B350 Gaming plus
4 x HyperX Fury Black DDR4 2133 MHz CL14
Ryzen 5 1600
ASUS GTX 1080ti Strix
My issues : first of all, my sticks aren't running at their full potential (2133mhz), locked at 1066mhz. I tried enabling xmp in UEFI, that was the #1 reccomandation to fix it. Didn't work, stayed locked at 1066mhz.
Trying to do that, I also figured out that my system only used 8gb of the total 16 installed. In Task manager it says 16 installed but 8 usabled. So I tried modifying the advanced boot options, first clearing that little checkbox, didn't change a thing. Then I tried entering the total amount of ram 16384, didn't work either : system still used only 8 out of 16.
Any ideas on what's causing this ? Why am I limited to dual channel, can't I enable quad ?
From what I can find online all my parts are compatible, the sticks are all the same. The motherboard can take that much.
