I have z590m gaming x mobo , 3600 mhz cl 16 crucial ram, i5-11400f cpu.
The xmp is enabled in bios but i see in cpu z and other programs that it works at 1600(3200mhz) why and how can i make it 3600?

Hey there,

Your CPU officially supports 3200mhz max speed. However, your mobo can support much higher speeds. It looks as if your mobo isn't picking up the second XMP profile for the DIMMS. Try update your bios to the most recent one and hopefully that will sort the issue.

Otherwise you can try and set the timings manually through the bios. You only need to change the 5 main timings. You can check these through the 'SPD' tab on CPU-z.

Ah no. That's a pity! Then the only other option is to configure manually. Did you try that yet?
