Need help with Corsair Vengeance Timings Please!


Recommended Posts

Need help figuring out if what I have is correct/the changes I made are correct.


My specs are:

MoBo: Gigabyte B450M DS3H WIFI

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

BIOS Version: F50A

Corsair Vengeance (Model: CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 )


I followed some steps online to get the speeds I did want (roughly 3000 like advertised) but now I'm a little paranoid and wanted some reassurance I'm not just doing more harm then good. A couple people around forums and such mentioned to enable XMP and see if that works. Tried that and still only got 2133. Then I tried enabling XMP, then changed the System Memory Multiplier to Level 1, and leaving the voltage on auto and sure as heck that worked. Checked Task Manager, CPUID, and CMD and they all showed 3000 minus CPUID which showed slightly under that (like 2994 mhz).


I guess what's bothering me is that on the Best Buy page, I noticed that the latency should be 15-17-17-35. After doing what I did my latency or timings appear to be at 16-17-17-35. I've never overclocked in my life and didn't mess around with any of the voltage and stuff, just followed 2 easy steps I saw on the forums and it worked. I'm just curious if my first timing being 16 could be harmful when it's supposed to be 15? Or harmful in any way whether that be performance or further. Any clarity would help please. I've been playing games on it roughly all day with no problems, just curious.
