Question Ram speed is in between the MB's supported speeds?

I searched and found a lot of results regarding ram speed that is higher than the MB supports (in which case the MB safely downgrades the speeds to match), but not in between the supported speeds...

I just bought a Asus ROG Zenith Extereme II, Threadripper 3970x and G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory.

  • Memory Speeds Supported: 4733(O.C)/4600(O.C)/4400(O.C)/4333(O.C.)/4266(O.C.)/4133(O.C.)/3800(O.C.)/3733(O.C.)/3400(O.C.)/2800/2666/2400/2133
  • The exact ram part # (F4-3600C16Q-32GTZNC) is on the MB's compatible memory list.
3600 isn't on the supported speeds list, does that mean it's only going to run at 3400? Should I grab a different kit?

Thank you

If it's listed on the motherboards memory QVL testing, the testing should state the speed it was set to when tested?

There are several standard memory speeds not in that list, I think maybe the Memory Speed Supported list isn't complete as it doesn't cover 3200, 3000 or 2933

Edit: Just looked it up - that memory kit is listed on the QVL as tested at 3600 mhz so I think that speed is actually supported. The specs for the motherboard are wrong
