Ryzen 5 2600 cant use 2933 Mhz or more

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hey

im running a ryzen 5 2600 and just got 2 new ram sticks G.Skill Aegis 2*8GB 3000mhz CL16 (F4-3000C16D-16GISB)

after i booted the pc for the first time afer installing the new RAM i changed the speed to 3000mhz in BIOS but the pc shut down immediatly after starting for like 3 times than it started normally again (but with 2133mhz) and i changed the speed to 2933mhz. the pc then booted normally but while i was gaming for 2min i got a blue screen. then i changed it to 2800mhz and now everythings running normally. 

my question is why cant i use the 3000mhz, let alone 2933mhz (which the r5 2600 is officially capable of)? My Mainboard also support up to 3200 mhz. The r5 2600 is officially capable of up to 2933mhz. 

Do you know what could cause that problem?

X.M.P. should be grouped along with you ram settings in the BIOS

in bios. what motherboard do you have? it's called either xmp, a-xmp or docp, depending on your motherboard. it's an auto-overclock for ram profile.

alternatively, you can do it manually as you've tried, but you need to increase dram voltage to 1.35 for it to work.

Correct, DOCP sets the frequency for you.

that is because you set manually the speed to 2933mhz elsewhere. at least based on what else you have said in this thread.

It's Ryzen. Ram doesn't work at advertised speeds a lot.

 

Ram marketing is extremely misleading. It'd be nice if the sh*t the manufacturers say their ram can do would be enforced a bit.
