I'm about to upgrade my RAM to a faster mhz. 3000 or 3200 in the next day or so.
I've seen a few posts via a pc group on facebook but cant' seem to get a solid answer.

Ryzen cpus supposedly "adore" faster ram?
And also something about b-die RAM is also better for the pairing?

I'm not really sure what direction to go when buying new RAM, other than 3000/3200 > my current 2400.

Looking at the Corsair RGB 16GB 3200mhz (2x 8GB) package, will this be sufficient or is there a better package out there for my setup?

Ideally u want highest ram timing and low cas latency for the money.

Is the Corsair package I linked a good set?
I think it's CL16?

So went and got the 3000mhz Corsair RBG PRO memory today (2x 8GB sticks)

When I open up task manager and check performance, the RAM speed is only sitting @ 2133Mhz.


What would be the cause of this? And how would I go about fixing to set at the correct speeds?
