Hey so I recently bought some ram witch is 16gb and 3200mhz, but when I go into task manager it only says 2133mhz. I would like it to be at its full potential so how do I make it 3200mhz. Thank You

@JoshCost -- HP has several "TG01" systems.

 

Example: HP Pavilion TG01 Gaming Desktop, AMD Ryzen 5 5600G Upto 4.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD, AMD Radeon ...

 

This page lists:

 

MEMORY

  • Memory Capacity: 8GB
  • Memory Type: DDR4
  • Memory Form Factor: DIMM
  • Memory Speed: 2400
  • Max Supported Memory: 32 GB

So, for this model, the maximum speed of the RAM is "2400".

Although your newly-acquired RAM is capable of "3200" with some motherboards, your RAM is slowing itself down, to be compatible with your motherboard.

There is nothing you can do to make the motherboard run at "3200".

With my old ram it was 12 gigs running at 3200mhz so there must be a way.

@JoshCost -- if the specifications for the motherboard state "2400", and the BIOS SETUP does not allow "overclocking", then "2400" is what you will get, even when the RAM is capable of going faster.
