So i ordered a new cpu and ram for my pc but in the meantime the ram broke and im not sure in which order to fix it.
My MOBO is asrock ab350m-hdv
CPU:ryzen 3 1300x
Gpu:1060 6gb
psu: cx550m corsair.
And ram that is at 2667mhz.

and the new cpu i ordered is ryzen 5 3600 and g.skill flare x cl16 3200mhz

As i understand the motherboard site is that the ryzen 1300x wont support higher than 2667mhz but to test if my motherboard is okay i need to put the ram in first will it work this way will the ram like underclock itself and then i could put my new cpu in which does support that ram?
Or have i competetly understood this situation wronlgy like a dumbass?

Bit of a mix up, yes AMD says 2667, that is default speed support from AMD. Your mother board specs show
  • Supports DDR4 3200+ (OC) (Ryzen CPU) / 2400 (A-series APU)
What speed you can actually get the ram up to and still be stable will vary, depending on the kit you use and how lucky you are.

You can still use the 3200MHz ram with 1300x. Best option is to use XMP and not manually OC you ram

Make sure to use xmp profiles in increments to check stability.
