I just built a new computer, My specs are as follows
Ryzen 5 3600 xt
AsRock b450
Corsair Vengence RGB Pro 2x16 at 3200MHz Sots A1 and B1
I have tried enabling XMP in the bios, that didnt work and I also tried setting it manually but still will not run above 2133MHz, I checked corsairs website and it says that my ram is compatible with Ryzen 3rd gen processors. Please help.

Try slots A2 and B2. Some motherboards are weird and have different slots for faster RAM. My MSI pro gaming ac motherboard is like this.

On the box there is usually XMP settings along with Voltage settings. For mine I had to bump my SODIMM voltage to 1.35v. Anything below 1.45 should be fine. Try 1.35 and if it works and runs stable you can try gradually bringing it down or keep it the same.

Im going to restart my computer real quick and see if xmp will work with it switched slots, only tried manual, also i do not have my processor overclocked if that makes a difference.

Dang, I didn't check when I bought the mother board, I'm kinda new to this whole building computers stuff, but another quick question, if I buy more ram, am I going to have to get slower speed ram, or should all the slots be able to run 3200MHz, I tried looking on google but It didn't really explain much.
