Question Corsair 16 GB DDR4-3600-18 Kit running @ 1067 MHz (correct??)

Hi everyone,

Great way to have a forum to ask a question instead of running around google trying all sort of solutions that may or may not work ^^

Hoping for your input in the following.

I bought a new system, and put it together. I've build PC's before, installed them, but when it comes to tweaking them, i'm not good.

The ram we bought (CMK16GX4M2D3600C18) is in my opinion not running at the correct clock speed?

I tried to run a benchmark program which said the following:
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3600 C18 2x8GB
3,599 User benchmarks, average bench 87%
2 of 4 slots used
16GB DIMM DDR4 2133 MHz clocked @ 1067 MHz
Performing way below expectations (19th percentile)

When I look at similar benchmarks the clock speed is far higher.
What could the problem be?

We checked the placement in the user guide for the mobo, and this seems to be correct.

What we got:
Radeon 5700
Ryzen 3600X
Corsair 16 GB DDR4-3600-18 Kit

I hope someone can provide us with input, or a direction to look in. Thanks in advance !
