Hi
I have 32 gbs of G.SKILL Trident Z Royal Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 4000 (PC4 32000) Desktop Memory Model F4-4000C16D-32GTRSA

In bios I've turned on XMP profile 1, and it shows as if it's running at 3999 Mhz
On desktop, within task manager, it still states speed as 2133 Mhz
In CPU-Z DRAM frequency is at 2000 Mhz. Does this value get doubled to 4000 Mhz?
Which one is correct?
Intel Core i7 11700K (didn't do any OC yet)
Gigabyte Z590 AORUS ELITE AX
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 (no OC)
Thank you

If the CPU-Z is telling you its 4000Mhz then its probably accurate. Sometimes Task manager likes to report false data.
