    VIII Formula 3000Mhz Memory Issue

    Hi everyone,

    Long time lurker around here but finally had to make an account to get help with this.

    I have a 16G (4x4) Corsair LPX kit on my Formula board and no matter what I mess with, it always shows the ram running at 1600Mhz.

    It has a recognizable XMP Profile yet it doesn't seem to change anything when I check the memory in Corsair Link and CPU-Z.

    I have scoured these forums and tried nearly everything that has been discussed here but I still need guidance, any would be greatly appreciated right now, thank you!

    System:
    i5-6600K @ 4.4 - 1.28
    Corsair LPX DDR4 3000 16g Kit
    Formula VIII motherboard
    Asus Strix GTX 1080
    Seasonic Platinum 860 power supply

    Look at the Memory tab in CPU-Z. What does it say beside DRAM Frequency?

    Hello

    1500MHz in CPU-Z would be 3000MHz memory speed.

    Thank you for clearing that up, now I feel like an idiot.

    But seriously, thank you!
