I recently bough and build a new gaming pc and got this RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance LED-RGB 16GB 3200MHz.
Run Memtest86 and got like 4000 errors. My mobo is Asus Primer B350M-A AMD AM4 DDR4.
I read that my RAM might be unstable at 3200MHz but if that’s their case, why is it advertised like 3200MHz then?
I am new to this stuff =\

You need a bio s update for you to get 3200mhz for your MOBO, I have the none M ATX version and I had to do an update to 2.0 or newer.

Make sure you check what bios you have first if you have the newer one and flash it to an older one there have been users bricking there MOBO.

But you should be able to run your 3200 at 2600 no problem.

Look in the website for the flash.

mmm well according to this site the latest bios version is 3402

and that same number shows when I check my bios version, the date is different tho:

I dont know if I should still update it or not, I might break something lol

no you have 3.0, you have the current bios version, Try Tomshardware and see when they say about it.

did you check your motherboards compatibility list to see if it will run? Ryzen is picky with ram. gskill has ryzen compatable ram, flareX I think. And recently made tridentRGB that can run on am4

i have both of these sets of ram and they hold the 3200 overclock on my am4 rog crosshair VI.

i saw some videos that said ryzen likes ram with low timings
