Hello
I have bought two addition ram modules to my two, so now I have four RAM modules. I was not able to get the same, but I get very simmilar as with the latency, speed and clock. I would like to help with the settings in BIOS because I don´t know how to set them to work, XMP does not work for me and manualy I do not know how to move on.

Previous RAM:

New RAM:

My PC:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK
VGA: RTX 2060 6GB

Thanks
 
Assuming this is your board's manual, please refer to page 47 & 48. Change your DRAM setting to manual and set the frequency to the desired setting (your sticks are 3200, so set it for that. Then go to "advanced DRAM configuration" and set the first 3 labels (CL, TRCD, TRP) to 16, 18, 18. Those are your memory timings. If you scroll further down you may also see "gear down mode" as an option, change that to 1T for best performance, or 2T or stability. And last thing, change your DRAM voltage to 1.35v, if you don't you probably won't be able to bootup. That's about it, just save and quit from there.

Start with the motherboard's User Guide/Manual.

The User Guide/Manual should provide information regarding what RAM modules are supported and in what configurations.

FYI:

https://download.msi.com/archive/mnu_exe/mb/E7C02v1.4-GSE-LITE.pdf

Do verify that I found the applicable manual.

RAM installation is presented on physically numbered Page 28.

Also note (from the page)

"Always insert memory modules in the DIMMA2 slot first "


Be sure to visit the MSI website to obtain more up-to-date information regarding supported RAM and RAM configurations.

Also remember that RAM should be purchased in kits of modules matched to work together.

Check the BIOS Chapter for relevant RAM configuration settings starting on Page 38.

XMP and related information begins on Page 48.

Does not work, I had to reset BIOS by pull out battery

Then set the RAM frequency to 3000MHz. Sadly overclocking RAM, even if it's to your marketed speeds, can be a hit or miss since the CPU's memory controller also needs to play nice with it. I would recommend watching this video to get an understanding of how to manually overclock RAM. First step to doing all this is to understand what the heck you're reading in the BIOS, right? It would also help to see pics of what you're doing so we know if you're doing them right.

tried 2933 Mhz and your config and it seems to work, later will try memtest also. Thanks.
