Recently, I built a computer based on the Entry Level AMD Build. I used a Ryzen 3 2200G, the ASRock B450 Pro4 board, and TeamGroup's T-Force VulcanZ 3000 memory. The computer works and everything is fine except that I cannot overclock the RAM. It's running at 2400. I've tried 2 sticks and I've tried 4. When I contacted ASRock, the tech told me that with 4 sticks, that is as high as I could get. He showed me a chart on page 23 of the manual (which I couldn't get to copy and paste here). Sure enough, 2400 was the high end. Two stick would get me 2667, but in no case was I getting 3000. I've never run into anything like this before, where a motherboard limits the XMP profile. The memory is not on ASRock's QVL, but TeamGroup has their own QVL, and it says I'm good for 3000 with that memory on that board. Can anybody explain to me why I have to settle for 2400?
