So I bought the x570 aorus pro and just installed it into my system, I'm running 16GB of Corsair vengeance lpx 3000MHz RAM (2 x 8GB). I was on version F11 for the first day and manually set the frequency, timings and DRAM voltage to it's advertised values. But I would most of the time get put into a boot loop. I set it down to 2933Mhz and it worked right the first time. The next day I was playing a game and the computer crashed. I decided that I would update the bios to version F30. As of updating none of my changes to RAM frequency are being applied, the DRAM voltage changes and the timings changes are applied but the frequency stays at 2133MHZ despite the multiplier being 29.33 still. When i save an exit the system doesn't do multiple reboots like usual and boots straight to windows as if I just did a standard restart. If anyone knows a way I can fix this I very much appreciate it, I'll also leave my system specs below.

MOTHERBOARD - X570 Aorus Pro
CPU - R5 2600X
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 3000MHz C15
PSU - Corsair CX650M
GPU - Nvidia GTX 1060

Why do you fiddle manually with the RAM settings, in place of simply enabling XMP in Bios ?
Enabling XMP should activate the correct speed and timings for your RAM automatically .
Look on page 29 of the manual for your mobo

I have a similar set up, an x570 i aorus pro wifi with a 3600x. I recently updated my BIOS from F11 to F30 too and have had no issues. As @egda23 has said, my RAM runs at 3200mhz just by enabling XMP,no problems.

Even when I enable xmp profile I still get the same problem.
Did you do a clear CMOS before enabling XMP ?
If not I would start by doing the clear CMOS, and try again to enable XMP after that ?
Furthermore, I just realized that you try to use RAM with an odd Cas latency (15).
Ryzen does not like that. Can you find in the memory settings in Bios an option to disable Gear Down . If yes chose 'disable' and try again.

EDIT: and good question by kurdtnz

I had a quick look and I think most of the Corsair RAM on there only work to 2133mhz.
With the older bios I was on it was able to get it to run at 2933. and my bios applied the settings when the system rebooted, and yes the ram was bought as dual kit. CMK16GX4M2B3000C15.
