RAM only running at 2133 MHz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I have recently upgraded from 16gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (2x8gb 3000MHz sticks) to 32gb Corsair Vengeance RAM (2x16gb 3200MHz sticks). However, the RAM sticks are only running at 2133 MHz. When I enable DOCP using the new sticks my pc doesn't boot properly and always has an error that forces me to change back to default settings. This didn't use to happen with the two 8gb sticks. I've also tried to increase the voltage but that didn't seem to help. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks

 

Specs:

CPU - Ryzen 5 2600 (stock speed and stock cooler)

RAM - 2 x 16gb 3200Mhz Corsair Vengeance sticks 

Motherboard - ROG Strix B450-F Gaming motherboard 

PSU -  Corsair RM850x Fully modular ATX Power Supply 

HDD - 2TB one

SSD - 500GB one

What slots are the sticks in? Also have you tried just one at a time?

The sticks are defiantly in the correct slots (A2 and B2) I haven't tried one at a time so ill do that now and get back to you. Thanks

When you try one stick at a time, make sure it's in A2.

Ryzen 5 2600

zen+ CPU can hardly handle 3200 on single rank, you're using dual rank (probably), so it's not gonna happen

 

reset bios to boot, enable DOCP, but change freq to 3000, or 2933, see if it works

if not, lower it until it does

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.

I just tried with one stick and it booted like normal at 2133 MHz after I enabled DOCP my pc didn't boot properly and I had to change it back. Thanks for the suggestion (Also it was in slot A2)

Ahh yeah that does make sense. Ill lower the speeds and hopefully it works, thanks. I'm looking to upgrade cpu before Christmas you think i9 9900k is a good shout?

ROG Strix B450-F Gaming motherboard

you have this board, probably looking at zen 3, no need to swap platform, just update bios (think asus will support it)

launching soon, hopefully available by christmas

 

it'll be an upgrade, but not sure if you'll think it's worth it though

 

as for if 9900k is a good buy, not currently unless it's a real good deal (and you can sell your current system)

wait for zen 3, and look at the benchmarks
