How do you change ram speed on HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0083w?

HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop 690-0083w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently got another stick of 16gb memory (speeds advertised up to 3000mhz) and so i saw my pc had the speed set to the default speed (something like 2133mhz). Since i dont think theres any options to do so in the bios, idk how i would change the speeds. I heard that hp has something called advanced bios in some motherboards but i still dont know how to even boot into that. Can anyone help me out?

Where did you get that ? Its motherboard specs




No, you can't over clock RAM on your machine. You can use higher speed RAM but machine will automatically downgrade to its supported speed.

You can do it very easily through AMD Ryzen Master, just do a search on YouTube and you can see a lot of helpful guide, its a 5 minute job. I am using 3200mhz memory on my 690.

I remember you saying " im not very good with hardware tech so". 

Only if you want to take the chance, per the manual ! 😛🙄

NOTE:Memory settings should be adjusted with great care as incorrect or unstable settings may prevent the system from booting up or may fail to load the OS (including corrupting the OS installation).
