Ram speed reading wrong


so i recently bought and put together a pc its working fine but going through the task manager and shows its reading my memory info at 2133mhz.

Though i had bought the ripjawz 2x8Gb kit which is supposed to be 3600mhz.

A bit more info about the pc it has:

asrock b450m pro4 

2 8Gb ripjawz 3600

amd ryzen 5 2600

evga 600w bronze

geforce gtx 1650

I have checked the bios oc settings its showing the same speed at auto settings not sure how to adjust it to read it properly dont want to do it wrong and mess something up.

thanks for the help if you need any other info just ask.

    Welcome to the forum, Bitoric. In order to utilize the advertised speed of your memory, you will need to load the XMP/DOCP memory profile in your BIOS. Unfortunately this is not something that we would be able to officially support as doing so may void your warranty as the memory is running outside of AMD's memory controller specification. You may also experience system instability by loading the profile, so exercise caution if you choose to go that route. If you wish to proceed, I would recommend consulting your motherboard manual for instructions as they differ per board: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/B450M%20Pro4/#Manual

    Best of luck!
