I recently built my first pc and I'm having some trouble changing the clock speed for the ram. I enable XMP 2.0 profile and when I switch to 3600mhz it only shows up 2100mhz on task manager. The highest ram speed I could get is 3000mhz at 1.35 voltage. My ram is put in slots A1,B1.

this is the exact ram I bought maybe I messed up because it says "Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model". I don't think 3000 vs 3600 is a big difference but I would like to use the full capability of the ram. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.

Asrock Phantom Gaming 4 motherboard

Task Manager is often wrong and displays only starting frequency for particular RAM as described in it's SPD. Use CPU-Z or a program like that to check real speed and settings.
