Ram won't go above 2400mhz? Ryzen 2700x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First post here, so plz be nice.


I recently purchased some new ram for my Ryzen 2700x system due to issues with my previous ram (I was lead to believe)

The ram I got was Kingston HyperX Fury RGB 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4

 

I was able to put it in the other day, turn on XMP 1 (3200mhz) and it worked fine for the night.

I turned on my PC this morning and it didn't post, would just stay there... On but not beeping or anything (the computer does have a speaker so should beep if it has memory issues)

I forcefully shut it down and rebooted and went on my day.

 

So I noticed that my ram was only going to 2400mhz now due to bios been reset, So i went in and enabled XMP profile 2 (3000mhz)

It booted fine but was still only going at 2400mhz.. Odd, I turned XMP off and set the ram to 2933 (which Ryzen 2700x natively supports) and it STILL sits at 2400mhz
During this whole time, the system boots fine. No beeps or failure to boot.

 

My build is:
CPU: Ryzen 2700x

Board: Gigabyte X570 Gaming X Mobo
Ram: Kingston HyperX Fury RGB 32GB (2x16GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4

GPU: Gigabyte Windforce RTX 2070  (Pre-Ordered my Gigabyte 3080 OC already)

PSU: 650 W Gold (thermaltake I believe) Will soon become This

 

The Bios is currently the latest released by Gigabyte, this was done before getting the new ram

 

I have included a photo of my Bios where it went to 2600mhz once even though it was set to 3200mhz (which I do know it can do)
Any ideas?

- have you checked for a bad module or ram slot?

- is your cpu oc 100% confirmed stable?

- try raising the cpu soc voltage a little (not much, maybe try 1.1V or MAX 1.2V). maybe the memory controller just needed a little more umphff.

had this happen to me before, but 3900x and x570 tuf

updating the bios seemed to make this issue go away, but not in your case it seems

 

try resetting cmos again and try again, i tried until it worked and never touched it again

though 3200 on dual rank for zen+ might be hard to run, maybe try 3000 and use memtest86 to test stability

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:

Spoiler

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.

- Yes, as far as I know. Both the Ram and Ram slots work perfectly fine (I can do more testing on the ram however, but system is very stable atm)
-CPU isn't OC'ed

-I can give that a shot, never done it before but worth a shot I guess

Is your ram sited on dual channel configuration? Read mb manual.

 

Its usually the second farthest from CPU and the farthest from the cpu.

 

If they aren't seated on this configuration you aint getting good speeds.

I reset bios and manually did the voltage for the Ram and set the Ram to XMP 2 (3000mhz)
Bios and Windows still report 2400mhz however. I'm really scratching my head at this since it was working fine before

Yes, I have it seated in dual Channel Configuration as per my Mobo

After all the troubleshoot you did I'm really at a loss then,

 

Do you have the latest amd chipset driver? 

 

There's a possibility that you have faulty ram, run memtest at 2400 and see if you get any errors.

I went in and did a memory test (the normal one windows provides, hope thats ok)
2 passes, standard.
Nothing came up

Also yes, have the latest drivers.
I re-installed windows when I got the Ram

The link you supplied for the memory states (in smaller print under the first picture) rated for 2400 and 2667mhz frequency.  

 

If it wont go high, you reached the IMC capability for the amount of memory.

 

So being stuck at 2400 at cl15-16, would stick with this speed, but tighten the cas latency to 14 and test there. That should bring the latency down a bit, will feel a little more responsive for ya.


- If it ain't broken, don't fix it! 

- Your post codes and beep codes in the drop down below.

Ah Nvm, I see what your saying
image.png.cdcc01653a717bd9a9522f1a4d7413a7.png

The question would be then.. how do i increase the IMC?
is it a mobo thing? CPU thing?

The memory controller voltage can be increased. 

But it wont help the issue.

 

Use typhoon burner eeprom spd tab.

Will show what memory ICs you have.

If its SK hynix modules, you're just going to have a tough time with them no matter what you do.
