My BIOS reports the ram correctly as 2400Mhz but in Windows it only shows up as 1500Mhz (Taskmanager and HWiNFO).

 

1500 is the single data rate, that means your ram is at 3000 congrats

Heyy, first things first: I've got a Ryzen 5 2600X, an Asus Prime B450M-A Mainboard and 2*8G of Crucial Ballistix 2400Mhz RAM.

My BIOS reports the ram correctly as 2400Mhz but in Windows it only shows up as 1500Mhz (Taskmanager and HWiNFO).

Then I tried autooverclocking in the BIOS just to see what happens: The RAM gets reported as 3000Mhz in the BIOS but no change in Windows.

Can I do something about it? With Ryzen MAster it becomes instable at atleast 1700Mhz...

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

Hi guys, I'm just gonna add up on your conversation and ask a question: I'm building a PC with very similar parts that UnycornyRainbow has: 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: AS Rock B450M Pro4-F

Now I need to pick a RAM speed. This motherboard has a maximum speed of 3200MHz. Can I just buy a 3200MHz RAM with this MB and CPU and not think about anything that would go wrong? I mean, should I be doing some settings in BIOS if the RAM speed is at maximum that motherboard supports? Or maybe it's the ideal combination?

Thanks!
