Hey, so some days ago i went to best buy to buy some ram, i bought 2x8gb 3200Mhz (vengeance). I switched from the previous 2x4gb 3200Mhz to the new 2 sticks 8gb and when i go into task manager it says they are only at 2133Mhz. I don't know if i got scammed or if i need to enable some setting (the previous 2x4gb ram did show 3200Mhz in task manager)

Nothing, just the name of the computer and some other stuff, nothing mentions ram/memory and not everything can be selected. Is there a way to overclock it without BIOS?

I already bought the ram and im in a trip so i can't buy anything online cause i will be coming back from the trip in 3 days.
I found something called ryzen master, it can overclock ram but im not sure, im always skeptical about these kind of things that are hardware related, feel like i can damage something pretty easily, but if it's made by AMD im sure it will be ok. I might try it but if something goes wrong, what should i do? if i make a backup, how do i load it so it all goes back to normal?
