Question Do I have 3200 or 2133 mhz DDR 4 speed? (3700x + X570)

I got a set of Corsair's Vengeance RGB PRO 3200mhz DDR4 RAM. I installed them in the appropriate slots (A2+B2) according to my mobo and task manager stated it was 2133 mhz. I updated my X570 Steel Legend with the latest BIOS. Afterwards, I put the XMP 2.0 Profile on and it was set as 3200 Mhz.

After a reboot, I check my task manager and it now says 3200mhz, however CPU-Z still says 2133.

Advice?

You're running the RAM at 3200 MHz. The 'memory' tab tells you what the true speed is. The 'spd' tab represents the base speed if it wasn't using the BIOS OC.
Thanks man. For some reason, I'm having lots of crashes. The only things I did was a bios update and changed the XMP profile. Do you perhaps have advice for this problem?

What exactly do you mean by 'crashes'? BSOD, reboot, freeze, program quits to desktop...?
How long have you been running the Ryzen system?
Please list the rest of the specs.
I suddenly got some BSOD's. I believe it was the ram XMP profile. It used to be 2133 mhz and today I did a bios update and put the XMP profile one so I would get my 3200 mhz speed. However, since I did that I am getting BSOD's. Now, I changed the XMP profile back to auto, so sadly my ram speed goes back to 2133, but the crashes stopped. Perhaps I have a high voltage? I read something about that in other threads.

Have been running ryzen for a month now I think. Didn't BIOS update until today and I never had any sort of crashes before.
