Intel i9-9900K
Gigabyte Aorus Z390-I Pro Wifi
RTX 2070 Super OC
16GB x 2 DDR4 3200MHz RAM (G.Skill Trident Z)

I recently installed 32GB of 3200MHz RAM and yet the BIOS has it locked on Auto setting at 2133MHz. I am on BIOS version F7 instead of F8c, but the F7 update addressed support for native 3200MHz RAM (Not OC). The F8 update addresses RAID AIC compatibility and CPU VCORE and power behavior. My system is running fine, so I'd rather skip the BIOS update for now.

I went with 3200MHz as that is what the system came with, but reading Intel's product page for the i9-9900K shows only 2666MHz as supported. As for the RAM itself it is listed on the QVL, so things should be good there... Or actually did I mess up that bad misreading a Q for a D in the model number?

F4-3200C16Q-32GTZR vs. F4-3200C16D-32GTZR

I'm still in the return period :S
