Hey,

Just upgraded my ram to 3200Mhz, how do I know it's running at the correct speed, and if not how do I set it correctly.



I simply turned on A-XMP to ON, and HWinfo shows 1600mhz for both sticks.
So am I running fine?

Hello! I had a similar issue.

So as it turns out, if you're running two sticks rated to run at 3200Mhz as Dual Channel/XMP profile settings, it would come up as 1600mhz (half of 3200.. so 2x1600mhz = 3200mhz.. DDR means Double Date Rate for this reason)

Ultimately, yes you are fine and the RAM is working correctly.

If your BIOS recognizes the RAM in the two slots running at the speeds 3200 MHZ (after applying the XMP settings) then once again, this is correct; Checking the BIOS is another way to double check.
