where to see my ram speed?

Recommended Posts

You're only running at 2100, go into the bios and enable XMP

It *Should* say XMP, might say DOCP or something like that. Check your motherboard manual

I bought 3200mhz ram just checking to see if it is running on that.https://gyazo.com/93aa6497b30443e09cba06502cd0e5f4

heres my cpu-z pic. and im using a x570 steel legend motherboard if i need to go in bios to check

Your speed is this one, times two:

Long story short, memory is actually running at for example 2133MT/s (transfers per second), but every transfer it can transfer two items. So while it's running at 1066Mhz (ticks per second), it does two operations every second. So manufacturer just call it 2133Mhz. But CPU-Z and such read it out 'correctly'.

If you are running Intel: it will be XMP

If you are running AMD: it might be XMP, A-XMP or DOCP (the latter is only used by ASUS on their AMD boards, the other manufacturers may use another name).


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

I'm not sure if it depends on which exact X570 AsRock board, I just found how to do it on the first Google result (which turned out to be the Taichi).

You do it here:

So OC Tweaker at the top > Load XMP Setting

Your memory - if it's rated for a higher speed - will have an XMP profile built in that this function in the BIOS/UEFI reads out.

So should be obvious.. Or there should be only one/two choices.

Another question I have is what is the point of buying 3200 mhz ram if it doesnt give you 3200mhz out of the box, and u have to overclock it in the bios? Could you buy 2133mhz ram and just set it to 3200mhz in the bios? Or is the advertised  ram speed the highest overclock you can run it at?

The ram runs at 3200, you just have to enable a setting for it to do so. If you bought 2133mhz memory, you can overclock but you wont get anywhere near 3200.

I assume its 3200mhz now just making sure?

Yes.

 

You can tell by multiplying the DRAM Frequency by 2
