I have just finished building my nice shiny new pc. However, the BIOS is reporting the memory frequency as 2133 MHz. The RAM I have installed is 3000 MHz. Here's the hardware I'm using:
 
 
  • Motherboard is a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Ultra Gaming
  • CPU AMD Rysen 7 2700x
  • RAM Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3000, and installed in slots 1 & 3 on mobo.
 
I think I am interpreting the BIOS correctly. Appreciate if anyone can advise on how to fix and get the RAM running at the correct frequency.
 
TIA

Hello BIGEYE,

 

the BIOS is reporting the memory frequency as 2133 MHz. The RAM I have installed is 3000 MHz.

 

 

2133MHz is the SPD of the RAM and for it to function at a higher rate you need to OC it, SPD explained here

 

Appreciate if anyone can advise on how to fix and get the RAM running at the correct frequency.

 

 

As above, I do not OC so cannot give you any tips based on experience I`m afraid, anything in the MB user manual on OCing?

 

Please note that DDR4-2933 is the max compatible with your CPU.
