What RAM speed can my mobo handle?

The description on my mobo says DDR4 2667/ 2400/ 2133, my question is can it go above that at all? I have 3000mhz Corsair ram and would like to use all of it. Thanks.

  1. System specs?
  2. If that mobo does not have the specs "3000 (O.C.)", then using the 3000Mhz RAM on a mobo that only supports up to 2667Mhz will run at max speed of 2667Mhz only (downclocked speed, but not really noticeable).

    Ryzen 1700
    16gb 3000mhz Corsair Vengance Ram
    Rx 480 4Gb
    B350M GAMING PRO MOBO

    I heard Ryzen can preform a lot better with high ram speeds, that why im asking :P

    Yes Ryzen does better with high speed memory. No that memory is probably not going to run over 2400 with a Ryzen setup. You need 3200/14 or 3466/16 ( or faster ) to get over DDR4 3000 speeds. You specifically need Samsung B-die ICs in your memory modules.


    BIOS updates will continue to improve Ryzen memory compatibility but I'm not sure if that specific RAM will ever run at its rated speed.


    Edit: With the newest BIOS that board says it supports DDR4 3200. You would need to buy better RAM to get those speeds though.

    So what kind of speeds do you think i could reach?
  6. 2400 tops. Maybe slightly higher with BIOS updates.
