I have a intel core i5 9th gen 9600K unlocked.

the B365 Pro 4 board is locked to a maximum of 2666 according to documentation from Asrock and will not go beyond that. 

Hi, I was hoping someone on here could help me fix my ram. I recently built my pc with 3200mhz hyper x ram. But it’s only running at 2666mhz. I have tried changing to the xmp profile but that didn’t work. Help me!

TL;DNR Random guessing.  Only possibly useful for ideas.
 

Might happen on some older motherboards.  I’ve seen people suggest giving the memory a touch more juice in similar situations.  I don’t know how that works though.  There are those that do.  There’s also making sure your bios and drivers are up to date.  Checking the QVL list to make sure your memory is on it might not hurt.  The QVL is kinda dumb but sometimes memory from a particular manufacturer gets autoset to the model from that manufacturer that was tested so if they’ve got hyperX 2666 but no 3200 it could possibly be that.

I have a asrock b365 pro4, and have updated the drivers, still nothing changed. What is the QVL.

what CPU do you have? Unless its a K sku, its likely locked and the maximum the CPU can do is 2666.

Qualified Vendor List. Should be in your manual. It’s a list of different brands and types of memory the company tested with the board. Sometimes they have custom cas timings that autoset

That would totally do it.  If this is the case you might be able to still get extra performance out of it by hand tightening the cas timing on the memory.  Kind of a PITA

its my suspicion since hes using a B365 board that he has a non K CPU.

Says no but b365 might still limit memory speed.  Lock out overclock too maybe.  
 

ha! Ninjapost.  You’re ahead of me.  Only shot to get the 3200 cooking is to do the hand clock thing on memory or just live with it

You can tighten the cas.  Helps some.

I am not a memory guru sadly.  They’re around though.  It’s going to be in bios under some sort of advanced memory stuff.  As I have been given to understand Messing with memory timings is famous for being slow, annoying, and requires testing to see if what you did actually worked.

I see. i might just stick with 2666mhz then as thats not to bad.

Enable XMP should give you tighter timings (i.e. lower numbers for timings) even if you're stuck to a lower frequency

I tried enabling xmp. After re booting nothing changes. It stays as it was pre xmp.

In your UEFI change the frequency, timings, and voltage manually.

Copy what the ram is specd at, just like XMP, it might work.

That's how I got mine to run at the correct speeds.
