Motherboard: msi mpg z390 gaming pro carbon ac
Cpu: i7-9700k (1.25v 4.7 ghz overclock)
Memory kit: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2x8) 3200MHz DDR4 cl16 CMW16GX4m2C3200c16W
My motherboard have memory try it.
The options offered me: 3200 c14,3333 c14,3466 cl15, 3600cl15,3600cl17,3733 cl17,3733 cl18,3866 cl19,4000 cl19......
-How can ı start first?
-what should I do with the stability test?
I'd like to hear your experiences and suggestions. Thanks.

Ram is touchy. It's extremely finicky really because you only see (normally) the 5 primary timings. What you don't see is the 40+ secondary and tertiary timings and all those have to sync with the primary, or bye-bye stability.

I've taken my ddr3 1866 10-11-10-30 2T up as high as 2400 12-13-12-36 1T and as low as 1600 7-8-7-26 1T and the only noticeable difference with either the faster speeds or tighter timings over stock settings was the windows boot logo. Instead of waiting for all 4 colors to pop on the Microsoft logo, I'd get 3. A savings of 1-2 seconds. But for gaming, if you gain 1-2 fps, it's bouncing so much that it's not really noticed.

If you had a Ryzen, or was using programs that seriously benefit from faster ram (I know, faster = more expensive) then for Intels there's mostly not going to be any real world benefits to OC higher than what setting XMP already gives over the default. Just adds to memory controller strain and that raises cpu heat.

The options offered you aren't really OC settings, they are a listing of what's compatible with the motherboard. You own 3200MHz, which works, or you could have bought faster, upto 4266MHz (think that's the fastest atm)
