Getting the Right Memory Speeds in BIOS

Go to solution Solved by boggy77,

it's correct, it shows 1800Mhz, which means 3600MHz since DDR stands for double data rate.

everything is working fine.

Hey guys, 


I'm new to BIOS and trying to figure out how to get my memory speeds matching. I have an ASRock B550 Phantom gaming 4 with 2x8 G.Skill Ripjaws V 3600 CL16 RAM. The system keeps running at 2133 regardless of what I do. 


-Sticks are in the A2/B2 slots which the manual says should handle 3200 dual rank. 

-I have the XMP 2.0 profile 1 set to DDR4-3600 16-19-19-39 1.35V. 


Not sure what I need to do to get this going at least up to 3200.


Send help!!

I don't know what i did... But after my 3rd reboot, task manager is seeing the 3600...Not sure if that's real or not...

use cpu-z to confirm, rather than task manager

OK, so now it looks much worse... Unless the memory only runs at the highest frequency needed at the time? At the moment I'm only using the pc to remote into my work desktop, but once I start up a game, should the speeds increase? 


By the way, just noticed I didn't post my processes, which is a Ryzen 5 3600.
