[SOLVED] command rate?

Yes, if it is automatically setting CAS to 16 and command rate to 2T, then LEAVE them that way, so long as everything is working correctly with them set like that. If you feel you NEED the lower odd numbered timings, then I'd suggest you take a read of this thread AND be prepared for a very lengthy stability verification process because even though those are intended to be run at those timings, they are intended to be run at those timings on an INTEL platform. None of the Ryzen based memory modules have odd numbered timings.

That depends entirely on what they were designed to be set for, and what platform they are being used with?

You don't mention what CPU, chipset or motherboard you are using. Or, what the ACTUAL model of your memory kit is?

Ryzen tends to prefer 2T timings, as well as even numbered primary timings especially on the CAS latency. There's a good chance those might not even run with odd numbered timings. Have you tried these with just setting the XMP profile already, and are having to manually configure them, or are they already running at the XMP profile settings and you are just trying to dial them in and tighten things up?

that also explains why it kept setting the timings to cas 16 and command rate 2. should i put both back to that? even though the ram is rated at cas 15?
