Overcloclocking Help Needed

I want to overclock my ram to 3000hz which is what my ram should be at. Currently my motherboard tells me that my DDR speed is at 2133hz which is not ideal. I tried to set the A-XMP profile 2 which set my DDR speed to 2933hz which I was excited on how easy it was. When I tried to save changes it did not boot up again and instead my PC stayed on with a black screen. I was scared at this point because I thought I had lost my PC (I had to force turn off my PC). I got it to boot up again and set everything to default (when turning on my PC again after the malfunction my PC turned on and off repeatedly until my bios showed up again). My question now is if I need a different bios update to support higher memory speed? Also I saw on some posts that updating the bios is dangerous which could brick your motherboard even if everything is done correctly, is this true or is this a false statement. I just got my PC and would hate if I broke anything on the first day. Thank you all in advance!

 

My specs

Motherboard MSI b350 tomahawk

Ryzen 5 1600 (Stock Cooler installed)

G-Skill DDR4 3000hz (4×2)

MSI Geforce 1070ti

(if any other information is needed please ask)

Yes please update your bios to the latest one, it is only dangerous and will brick your motherboard if you suddenly turn off your pc while it is updating (thats why it is not ideal to update your bios when there is lightning/raining) please update the bios first then come back again if you need help. 

 

 

anyways do you know how to update your bios?
