Ram is clocked at 2133mhz, even tough the maximum is 3000mhz

HP Recommended
Pavilion 690-0024
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I recently decided to update my ram and get rid of my old one that I have. So I bought the Corsair Vengeance 32Gb ram (2x16) 3000mhz 288-pin DDR4. Once I installed it I ran my computer and saw I was running all of my ram but it was stuck at a speed of 2133. I've gone into my bios and tried to find solutions and could not find anything. My CPU is a Ryzen 5 2400g, GPU is RX 580, and I think my motherboard is a sunflower 8433. I don't know if this is a ram defect, my motherboard, or something else I don't know about.

I understand that the ram is clocked at 2133mhz, even tough the maximum is 3000mhz


Please perform the below steps on the computer to run a System Test

- Shut down/Turn off the computer

- Once the computer is completely Shut down/Turned off

- Now press the power button once to turn on the computer and immediately start pressing/tapping the F2 key on the keyboard

- This should open the UEFI Diagnostic screen on the computer

- Please select System Test and then select Extensive Test

the ram speed of 2133 is a industry standard set by the "JEDEC" standards group


faster speeds are not a official standard, and therefore must use what is called "XMP" profiles


a computer bios must support the XMP setting in order to run ram faster than the std 2133 speed


many OEM computers do not support the "XMP" setting in the bios and therefore can only run the ram at official "JDEC" speeds

I understand your concerns.


Please perform the BIOS restore and check.


Set BIOS default and restart:

  1. Restart your notebook.
  2. During startup, press F10 repeatedly until the BIOS menu is displayed.
  3. Once the BIOS menu is displayed, press F9 to restore factory defaults.
  4. Select Yes to confirm.
  5. Press F10 to save changes and exit.
  6. Select Yes to confirm.
  7. The computer restarts using the default settings.

Have a nice day!!
