    After ram upgrade MHz is 2133 instead of 2933

    Hello all,

    I have Asus TUF Gaming FX506LU-HN122, the laptop came with an 8GB ram(running in 2933 MHz).

    Today I just bought and inserted my second ram (8GB-3200 MHz ram by Kingston kvr32s22s6/8).

    I opened my laptop and when I look at the task manager, it says I have 16GB ram installed but they are working in 2133 MHz...

    I also looked at XMP setting in BIOS but I couldn't find anything

    So, what should I do?

    Because the memory is mismatched it's running at a lower default in order to ensure stability. You want to get a module that closely matches the original memory, or even better you want to replace the memory with a matching kit.

    I just returned that ram today, because it was 3200 MHz, and it supposed to work at 2933 MHz.

    This was a Kingston 8GB Ram, but it appears as a fake ram when I checked it with Kingston's Product Identification.
