So i should be able to achieve 3600 MHz by just setting the voltage to 1,35V and the frequency to said 3600? Even tho the ryzen 5 3600x says the max frequency is 3200?

Idk about whether you should set it to 3600 or not, but you can set it to 3200 and check for stability as for now.

Hey guys,

I just upgraded my RAM from a 16 GB 4400 MHz to a 32 GB 3600 MHz, thinking that a Ryzen 5 3600x paired with a Gigabyte Gaming X can run it.
I fucked up last year when putting a 4400 MHz RAM into it, knowing that the CPU doesnt support that much.
In my dumb Head i thought, that 3600 MHz was the highest frequency the CPU can run and therefore bought one as i wanted to upgrade to 32GB without checking the Specs beforehand again...
I now wanted to OC it with XMP, the PC booted, beeped 3 times, shut down, booted again, beeped 3 times again, shut down and then POSTed. Obviously, without the OC.

So, my question is, am i just dumb here? Is there another way to run it on 3600 MHz or should I just send it back and buy a 3200 MHz RAM?
 

 



As always, thanks in advance!

I've had the same issue, apply the voltage and speed manually.

I have a Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB 3000MHz kit paired with Ryzen 3 2200G. I set the voltage to 1.35V manually, since it was not applying it automatically (It stayed at 1.2V)

XMP is just a shortcut that may or may not work, you can get any speed you want lower or equal to the RAM's rating by setting it manually, no need to replace anything.

Sounds good, thank you.
But if i cant run it on 3600 i will most likely send it back and buy a 3200 one, as it would cost at least 30 € less
