Yes, I installed all the drivers but that did not help. But I found the solution which was pretty simple: I just had to update my BIOS to the latest 2.70 version, and now the RAM runs perfectly on 3200MHz.

So, problem solved, next time I will start with the BIOS update before asking :)

Thx!

Hello @pulex,

have you installed all the necessary drivers? Ryzen Power Plan "balanced" especially important to tell Windows 10 how to use those many cores and threads.

Hello there!

First I would like to let you know, that aside from using MSI AB to crank up my GPU a bit, I have never done any kind of real overclocking, so I have no experience in OCing CPU or RAM. I just wanted to share this with you, so you know that I might will need a more detailed explanation as I won't understand some high level OC language :) .

Here's my issue:

I just built a new pc for myself with the following parts:

MoBo - Asrock B450M Steel Legend
CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600
RAM - Kingston HyperX Predator 3200MHz CL16 Single kit (HX432C16PB3/16)
GPU - Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 6GB Windforce OC
OS   - Windows 10 Home 64bit

Afaik the MoBo bay default supports 2400MHz RAM, but is capable of overclocking them, and if I checked the correct list, it supports the above mentioned RAM I have.

In the BIOS it even offers as the first XMP Profile to have it on 3200MHz with 16-18-18-18-36, with 1.35 voltage settings

I select the profile, save & exit from the BIOS. Windows loads up without any problem, but any kind of audio/video playback or stream starts to stutter (like Spotify, MP3 or videofile from local disk, Youtube or Twitch for example). I didn't even try to run any game for example as I assumed it would crash or have he same stutter issues.

So my questions are:
- Does the MoBo even capable to run my RAM on it's native frequency?
- If it does, what do I have to do to make it stable, and get rid of the audio/video stutter?

Thank you very much if you had the patience to read this over, and if willing to answer me.
