Hi, I Installed 8GB Ram of Corsair 3200mhz in my pc but it is showing 6.93 usable and 2133mhz only. I am using ASRock B450m Pro4 as motherboard. Kindly advise to fix this. Thank you.
A portion of ram is reserved for OS system use. The lower speed is probably the base speed, you can check that on Corsair website.
To get the higher speed enable XMP in motherboard bios (instructions in manual).
Adding to what Goodplay mentioned, if you are using a APU then some RAM is also reserved for the Integrated Graphics. The Integrated Graphics RAM amount can be adjusted via BIOS setting.
Further adding to this, the former overclocking features were referred to a DOCP xmp profile for the ram. This should be pretty easy to find in the bios and set. Looking in manual DRAM timings frequency drop down boxes. Sometimes the xmp profiles show up at the bottom of the DRAM timing drop down boxes because numbers come before letters in ASCII alphabetical ordering.
B450 should handle this just fine. If you've got lingering unapplied bios updates, then apply the latest one.
Hi, Kindly advise the best GPU for Ryzen 3 2200g. I am planning to have GTX 1660 (6g) with Ryzen 3 2200g.
As others have mentioned, the iGPU is taking up some RAM because of the BIOS. For now set it to the lowest memory usage from the iGPU as there is virtually no difference in gaming even when assigned the max amount of memory to it. Make sure XMP/DOCP is loaded as well to set the memory to run at the rated speed.
After you get a GPU you can disable to iGPU to free up your RAM completely.
1660 is a good card for 1080p gaming but you should also consider something like a Radeon RX 570/580/590 depending on your budget. I have an RX 570 myself with a 2200g and it runs fantastic.
I thinl you should go with rx580 8gb (gigabyte/msi build) or a rx590. These will perfectly help you to game at max!

I recommend installing at last 16GB of memory so that there is enough for games and Windows to work with. Integrated Vega graphics can use up to 2GB of RAM so faster memory is helpful.
Also you have to configure your motherboard at such that it uses dual channel memory link!!
Cuz dual channel boosts performances!
