Ok yall, it seems that I'm having a few issues with this cpu, RAM and or MOBO. First off, I'm currently using 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance RBG Pro sticks at 3600 c16-19-19-19 that I'm trying to get to c16-16-16-16 or atleast c16-18-18-18. I've always used XMP so I really don't know how to manually overclock RAM. Does the overclocking DDR4 RAM guide on the forums still apply to 12th gen MOBO's and cpu's? Secondly, I have my 12700k ratio set to 51 basically (see photos) but it tops out at 5113.6MHz, I think due to BCLK but I set the BCLK to 100. ? And thirdly, HWMonitor is showing 5089 when I had my cpu set to a 54 ratio. (not pictured)
I had to scale back due to temps but like I said at a 51 ratio it 20220311_222908.jpg is showing 5089MHz, is that normal and if so why is showing 5113.6MHz on Core Temp? Thanks again guys.

Why is there two threads on the same subject, elmo?

Closing dupe thread for the other that already has responses.
