Question Problems setting RAM to 3200 MHz.

Hello!
I've been dealing with this for quite sometime now. My specs are these:

Asrock B450 Prime Steel Legend
Ryzen 5 2600
Corsair Vengeance DDR4 LPX 2x8gb 3200MHz

I have both sticks in their respective slots for a dual channel setup (A2/B2), and I'm trying to make them run that way. The problem is that my motherboard directly doesn't recognize my sticks as if they ran @3200MHz, in the UEFI setup they just show up as 2133MHz. I tried enabling the XMP profile and manually setting the frequency + voltage, and seeing if only 1 module could run @ advertised speed, but no luck so far. I am yet to update BIOS + clear CMOS. But for now, could this be that the motherboard is faulty and doesn't direct enough energy to the modules, so they don't work at full speed?

Corsair's LPX series aren't a good pairing with Ryzen motherboards. Updating Bios for improved memory support would be a good idea since you've done most of the troubleshooting anyone would suggest.

Yeah... There is a new bios update for my chipset but whenever I try to instant flash, my PC doesn't recognize the installed files in my flash drive. So I'm stuck with this version. Should I just get a new mobo?

Might not be trying to do it correctly. Make sure usb stick is fat32 formatted.

Unzip bios file (if zipped) and copy it to usb drive, no folders.

Locate usb2 slot on the rear of the motherboard. Manual should describe where/ what colour.

Bios flash tool in the bios should read it then.
