Lenovo y720t AMD RAM speed

2020-04-09, 12:04 PM

I purchased the legion y720 tower with a ryzen 5 1400, radeon rx 570 and 8 GB of ram a while ago but i have realised that when i open task manager it says my ram is clocked at 1200mhz and this makes sense as i often have fps drops in games when my cpu rarley goes over 60%. Also when i looked in the bios i saw that it said my ram was 2400mhz so i was wondering if there was something i have to enable to make the ram go faster or if task manager is just lying to me?

Just a quick update, i tested my ram using UserBenchmark.com and it confirmed that my ram is clocked at 1200 mhz so my question is this: is there a way to enable the 2400mhz that it is shown as in the BIOS or do i have to upgrade the ram, in which case what ram would be compatible?

Do you only have one stick of RAM? Dual channel mode utilizes the full speed of RAM so maybe adding another stick would help (interesting seeing as how 1200MHz is half the speed of 2400MHz). Have you also tried changing which slot the RAM is in? 

 

I would not have thought overclocking the RAM would do much at all; you can't really overclock it anyway as don't think the stock board would support it.
