ram speeds showing different
soo i just bought new ram the corsair vengeance 1600mhz 16gb ram kit and i installed it into my pc and set my xmp profile 1 which says 1600mhz but in cpu-z it shows my dram frequencies at 460mhz and in windows task manager it shows 677 mhz its a 4 stick pack so idk if something is divided up between all the sticks or not but neither of the two programs say 1600 is there something wrong with this ram? or what im kinda confused...

If the memory tab shows 460 as freq then you are running at 920...Go into the BIOS and manually set the DRAM freq to 1600 and the timings to spec, may want to set the DRAM voltage + 0.05 over spec, doesn' look like XMP is working, might also look in the BIOS for EOCP or DOCP and can try enabling either of those and selecting 1600
