Ok. So the resets didn't work.

Do you have profiles available in the bios? Because at the moment you would be in factory default. There is the option to change it from default to something else (not always though).

Also, a thought I just had. Your ram might not support XMP.

It doesn't really matter what we call it. I think we all know what each other means lol.

And yeah, try slots 1&3. I've not heard of 2&4 being the default before.

One more , the speed showing is 1/2 speed of the DIMMs
2133 @ DDR = 1/2 of 2133 = exactly what you are showing
This is where I laugh at myself.......

The board came with this additional pamphlet with instruction od how new memory sims should be inserted.



Hence my ambivalence to test the notion when i only have 2 DDR4 sims.

It won't do any harm to the ram because they're all ddr4 slots.

On the new boards you have to basically enable certain settings and set memory speed manually
I had forgotten that ( been a while since I had to mess with mine when I built it. Checked my BIOS
and there it was.
Google setting DIMM speed and DDR 4 with your system board model.
I apologize for not looking sooner.
Just got off from work and very tired. Yeah , this type of stuff is my job...

Its Double Data Rate. i.e speed x2 .
2133 /2 = ?
3000 is 2133 mhz until you OC it, Then it will be ....wait for it.....1500 mhz

The new boards are just a PITA.

Gone are the days of simple plug and play

I just hung my head in shame.

All this time I was trying to get him to get the rate up to what it already was.

Um, Andy? You're running at 2129 lol.

I'm chalking mine up to not enough beer (I haven't had any yet lol).

Still, doesn't fully explain why it won't boot with XMP enabled. Unless the ram doesn't have an XMP profile.

If I am not mistaken , (and I would have to take my gaming system into UEFI) But AMD system boards do not have XMP. They have AMP . And , thats one good reason I mentioned the CPU that the OP has does not appear to have a "black box " version (i.e. core unlocked for OC)
But , the system is running and NPF (No Problem Found). Or I have 4 sticks of bad ram as they are showing 1800MHZ in CPU-Z
This is where I take my leave.

That makes sense.

So the op is currently running at (near as dammit) 2133.

Next step would be enabling AMP (not XMP lol) and tweaking it.

That's out of my comfort zone for me to tell someone else to oc their system. Not got a problem to do it to my own, because if I screw it up, it's my system and my fault.

CPU is a 1600X, similar to intels K variants so it is indeed unlocked for OC purposes.

Cheers for clearing up my memory issue, 3000 being the equivalent of 2133 mhz, idiot that i am. LoL

Not quite.

2133 is actually displayed at half that. So you're roughly 400 (displayed) away from getting the most from your ram (it would need to show 1500 in cpu-z for it to be the max 3000).

TBH though, you probably won't notice much, if any, difference with the amount of ram you have.

Apologies for being dense earlier.
