So I bought my very first actually good gaming PC after lot of years, and I specially wanted RAM that is 3000 mhz

cuz I have read somewhere that high mhz RAM is good for Ryzen 2600 CPU, but here starts my issue

the RAM is working only on 2133 mhz, and dont know how to get it to 3000 mhz or anything above 2133 mhz

my PC configuration is Ryzen 5 2600/ Nvidia 1060 6GB/ 16 GB DDR4 RAM/ Corsair CX650M PSU/Gigabyte b450 motherboard

this is the RAM in question http://www.gskill.com/product/165/185/1535968303/F4-3000C16S-16GISBAegis-DDR4DDR4-3000MHz-CL16-18-18-38-1.35V16GB-(1x16GB) and I only have one stick of 16 GB DDR4 RAM in my PC

cooler on Ryzen CPU is the stock one, and in BIOS I have already turned on XMP profile

but even tho XMP profile is turned on I see no change in my RAM mhz

Operating system on my PC now is Windows 8.1 Pro, and here are some pictures of my RAM, BIOS and motherboard

If you had an ASUS board I could tell you exactly. If XMP isn't working try setting the speed manually to 3000mhz, set the timings to 16-18-18-38 and the voltage to 1.35 then use memtest to test if it's stable. It should be though. It's rated for 3000mhz I have pretty much the same ram, same speed same timings. Set it manually never had any problems. Gigabyte looks like they make it more complicated than it needs to be though. Is your board on the latest BIOS?

I think its a issue related to bios manual settings.

See this if can help. Its about to go and change manually in bios the ram speed from normal to other higher values.
