Basically as title says, I ordered 3200MHz ram however bios is reporting max bandwith of 2133MHz.

So do I need to I need to have newegg replace them with the proper ram? I don't know with the new systems if they report things differently.

Should be: 16-18-18-36

Reporting: jedec
15-15-15-36

However there is a row next to it that does says: xmp#
16-18-18-36

As I'm looking further into actually I'm honestly confused. Not used to this lay out I guess, type says cl16-18-18 d4 - 3200

System specs:
Asus rog strix b450-f gaming: latest bios update.

Memory needs to be in the A2/B2 slots and DOCP needs to be enabled in the BIOS under the performance tab. If the memory isn't in the A2/B2 slots then it will crash when DOCP is enabled. DOCP is ASUS version of XMP.
