Problems with AMD Ryzen 5 and Ram 3200 Mhz

Hi all, I have a AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor with RAM: CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Corsair 16GB to 3200Mhz.

I have not quite clear how much the processor can support as a maximum of Mhz, I can use all the 3200Mhz or with Ryzen 5 I have a maximum threshold? Am I using all the Mhz RAM available or am I "limited" by a maximum threshold?

For example, upgrading the BIOS can be made to support more than now Mhz?

Thanks in advance, I look forward to your answers

Is that exact RAM model on your motherboard's QVL list for 3200mhz? Also, is it version 4 or 5, because version 4 is Samsung and version 5 is Hynix, the former has better compatibility than the latter.

Here are some places to check on information about processors.

See the sections on memory controller and supported memory.

Ryzen - Wikipedia

And as always, check the motherboard manufacturers web site to find the compatible processors and RAM for your motherboard...

(check the users manual for any notes about RAM)
