2667/ 2800/ 2933/ 3000/ 3066/ 3200/ 3466 MHz (by A-XMP OC MODE)

that what it says on my MB, but i bought 3600 ram by mistake and i wondered if it will still work in my pc
as i dont want to damage anything.

the Ram is Crucial Ballistix BL2K8G36C16U4R 3600 MHz, DDR4,
i have B450-A PRO

If you have one of the later ryzen CPUs like 3000 series + then it should work fine running at 3600mhz but if you are on 1000/2000 you may have to manually set the speed to 3200 if it gives you problems with D.O.C.P

You don't need any on windows, just look at performance tab in task manager
