Hi, I have just put my PC together today and I have came across an issue which is well known and I knew I would come across. After inserting my RAM sticks with frequency of 3200MHz they unfortunately show up as 2133MHz and I have tried changing this in the BIOS however, each change causes the motherboard to send out 3 Beeps which indicates a RAM issue and the PC rolls back to the 2133MHz frequency. Any ideas of how I could solve this issue and get the most I can out of my RAM? (The frequency of 3200MHz is supported by this motherboard)

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 3.2GHz (Not overclocked)
RAM: 16GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB PRO 3200MHz (2 x 8GB)
Motherboard: ASROCK B450M Steel Legend

3200mhz is supported by this motherboard, but may not be possible with that cpu.
-Tried XMP/DOCP, no dice.
-Tried entering the frequency, voltage, and primary timings manually?

You may end up having to settle for a lower frequency, like 3000, or 2933, which some 3000 kits default to.

So, I have tried XMP and the preset didn't work. Could you provide any help with timings, frequency and voltage as I am super inexperienced and I know this can damage the components? I have also seen people achieve the frequency of 3200MHz with Ryzen 5 1600. For now I have settled for 2800mhz while I hit a brick wall at anything higher.

Did you try entering the Frequency, Voltage, and Primary Timings manually? All 3 are on a sticker on the back of the modules if you don't know.
If that doesn't work, you have no choice but to run at a lower frequency.
