3200mhz ram don't go more than 2666mhz

Website and box says that supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) and in bios it shows the 3000 and 3200mhz xmp profile.
Ram list shows only up to 2666 sticks but bios and box says different. It's weird.

Maybe you guys are right and it doesnt support more speed.

 

OR my sticks arent compatible.

Yes, it does support XMP, up to its rated maximum speed of 2666 Mhz. The bios can identify RAM but because the chipset is not rated for it, it won't be able to use it. The B chipsets are never intended for overclocking (which running RAM at higher speeds is).

I just bought:
i9-9900

Asus Strix B365-F Gaming
PN (90MB11I0-M0EAY0)
2 x 8GB RAM Kingston
PN (HX432C16FB3A/8) 

 

I know they doesn't show in the memory list. (The only ones i got available in my reseller and cant get better or different ones in Argentina=


I enabled XMP in the bios in 3200 but ram only goes up to 2666, (i dont mind using them at 2666, but since I have them, it would be good to take advantage of them!

 

Is there a way get it working with custom timing or something like that?


You can like guides or ask me any question!

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
