Question Ryzen 3600x and 3200MHZ Ram

So I am finally getting around to tinkering with my new build and I am trying to figure out the Ram timings with the 3600x. The RAM shows it should run at 3200mhz but its currently running at 2666. Would Ryzen Master be better for changing the speeds or the bios? Never used Ryzen Master so wasn't sure how stable it was. Also is it possible to get 3200mhz without doing anything to the cpu?

Always use bios to adjust any settings. Ryzen master is a fancy looking monitoring interface. In your Bios it will show 1600mhz for 3200mhz speeds. DDR double the data rate for actual timings. Most motherboards list effective ram speeds though. CPU-Z and other diagnostic software will confirm all your speeds.

Ryzen Master is convenient but has issues; namely, once you use it to change memory settings, it can lock out certain settings like vSoC, VDDG, and VDDP so that you can not edit them later manually in the UEFI (you can only do it through Ryzen Master). Any RAM overclocking should involve the use of Ryzen Memory Calculator by 1usmus.
