Ram Speed stuck on 2133 on Msi B350 Tomahawk Motherboard

I've build my first PC couple days ago with Msi B350 Tomahawk, Ryzen 5 1600, Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz and Gtx 1070. Everything works fine, but my Ram speed is on 2133. I updated the bios on latest version but i cant get it to 2933. Whatever i try it's struggling to boot and after a minute or so when it finally boots it automatically sets the ram speed on 2133 again.

If you know how to fix it would be great. Thank you.

  1. You need to change the voltage and timings as well. The voltage should be 1.35v for 3000MHz RAM, the timings is printed on a small sticker on the RAM stick itself.

    So i changed DRAM Frequency at 2667 while setting voltage on 1.35 but not touching timing and it booted but above that it does the same thing (2800 and 2933 Mhz). Is there a chance that for more speed it needs CPU OC aswell or something like that?

  3. You need to put the correct timings as well. Also make sure your BIOS is updated to latest version.

    Yeah but i just couldn't find the correct timing for 2800 nor for 2933 Mhz. Been looking for it on forums and checked on Corsair's site and it says there that timing is 15-17-17-35 but that is for exactly 3000mhz,but on DRAM Frequency there is no 3000... There's 2933 and 3200 after that so couldn't find the right one... and i updated BIOS 2-3 days ago when i build pc and downloaded latest update from MSI's site

  5. You can use those timings for the lower speed as well.

    It didn't help.

  7. Well, you are not the first one to have these problems with a Ryzen system. Usually a BIOS update would fix those RAM issues.
