RAM Speed Lower than Suppose To Be

Hi, I have a problem with actual RAM speed frequency. My moterboard and CPU are support frequency of 2400Mhz  RAM , I have DDR4 -2400 RAM stick, but in Bios (version F.14) setting it shows a frequency of 1200Mhz  and I can't change any settings. What should I do?

This is a common point of misunderstanding. The memory is DDR4....DDR means "double data rate". So the computer "fetches" data from the memory twice on every cycle. So effectively it is 1200 x 2 = 2400mhz. But really, honestly it is making 1200 cycles per second or megahertz. Different applications report the speed differently. What you see is correct and normal and there is no problem.
