Even without overclocking speccy shows the speed as something else. Should I be worried abbout this? Do ram sticks change clock speeds like graphics card? Thank you. All my components are new and purchased today itself. In Speccy, it shows up as 1596 MHz.
Specs:
CPU: Ryzen 3 1300X
Mobo: Asus Prime A320M-K
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black CMK8GX4M1D3000C16 2x8gb
GPU: Zotac Gaming GTX 1650
 
DDR stands for double data rate.
Some programs like task manager will show the doubled speed, which is 3200.
Some programs like Speccy or CPUz will not show the doubled rate, so they will show 1600mhz.

Your ram is running properly at 3200.

Ok, thanks for the replies guys! Before this thread closes, I have 2 questions please answer them, it would be a graet help!
My Ram now shows up as 15.9 GB instead of 16. Is this normal?
How much more can I overclock it?
Thanks!
 
1 having 15.9 instead of 16 is pretty normal, although im not sure why that might be.
2 how much you can overclock it is really luck. Concidering you have an a320 board and a first gen cpu, you likely cant get it past 3200 stable, but it wont hurt to try.
Id update bios before memory oc.
