So I recently built a new rig and I'm having a problem that is really annoying me.

MOBO is an AMD (Ryzen 5 2600 CPU Based) Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming and the RAM is a pair of Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3000MHz.
For some reason it's defaulted to 2133MHz and when I go into the BIOS to change its stock speeds, it turns off then boots with an error and resets to the original settings.
I am able to get it to 2400MHz but any higher than that and it won't boot.
I've even updated the BIOS and everything.
Is this a RAM Issue or a Mobo issue?
Should I get different RAM?
What are my options?
Any help is appreciated.

It is a never ending story with AMD&RAM compatibility.... :(

Edit: You should try a different RAM.

Amd is very "selective" with the RAM
