Hello there,first i'm gonna list out my specs

MBO - Asus ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming
CPU - Ryzen 5 1600AF
RAM - TeamGroup T-Force RGB 3000Mhz 2x8GB
GPU - PowerColor RedDragon RX 570
PSU - Aerocool 550W 80+ Bronze RGB

I've moved up from an Prime A320M-K to a B450 mobo and from a TeamGroup T-Create 3200mhz CL22 to a TeamGroup T-Force 3000mhz CL16. Everything works fine,except one thing that i've noticed.Running my ram at their indicated speed of 3000mhz XMP(D.O.C.P) it gives me a 3100 points in that little CPU-Z Bench.....when i use the ram with xmp at 3000,but put it at 3200 frequency.....the performance drops a little,lets say by 100 points.....My question is why tho? I kind of refuse to think that the ram can't take 200mhz increase ........ Any ideas or clues? Thank you in advance :)

cpu-z tests your CPU, not ram
1600 AF has 3700 points in that test
maybe youre overheating or CPU is not boosting properly?
1600 non AF has around 3100
Hello,thanks for your reply, as far as i can tell,the cpu runs at optimal temps,idle 30c,gaming 56c and full load 65c on Wraith Prism cooler.Boosting wise,it stays at 3425mhz on load,sometimes boosts to 3.7 but that's it. Also i did overclock the CPU after this issue ,to a 3.8Ghz All Core,no more than 3350 pts i think
