HI, I'm sure this question has been asked a lot but I haven't found it sadly, I've bought two sticks of 16 GB HyperX Fury RGB 3200mhz, in CPU-Z it says that my "NB Frequency" and DRAM Frequency is 1200mhz, shouldn't it be 3200mhz? or 6400 do they not add up?

Na, DDR is for individual ram speed. Can see under spd tab XMP-3200's true frequency for each stick is 1600.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM

The interface uses double pumping (transferring data on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal) to double data bus bandwidth without a corresponding increase in clock frequency.
Diagnostic programs show true ram frequency. If you see 1600 for each stick, they are both running at 3200.

If XMP 3200 is not giving you 1600 in Windows, could try manually adjusting ram.

Specs should run ram fine. Restore bios defaults and set Xmp to profile 1. One thing i noticed is command rate should be 1T with two sticks not 2T. Something isn't setting right.

Has your bios been updated?

I've updated it and it looks like it still doesn't work, then i changed my ram speed and my cmos reset xD but i still have the same problem. if both of my ram sticks are 3200mhz would i have 6400mhz in total or 3200?

my Task manager says my ram speed is 2400?
