Asus Prime-450-Plus Setting 3000MHZ RAM

Hi all,

I decided to upgrade my system and finally move back to AMD. I have a 2600x on an Asus Prime- B450- Plus board. RAM wise I am running 4x 8Gb Corsair Vengeance 3000Mhz DDR4.
Is there any way to force the RAM to run at 3000mhz ?
I have tried to set it to 3000mhz in the AI tweaker in the Bios but I get an alert saying it fails to post.

I have added some info fropm CPUZ below and from what my Bios is stating about the RAM.

When running DOCP I can see that it see the Speed/Timings/Voltage of the RAM fine.

The RAM I am using is Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 CMK16GX42M2D3000C16. I have 2 Kits that Contain 2 x 8gb.

2 DIMMS in Slot A2+B2 the system will boot fine. Swapping the DIMMS to another Pair in the same Slots work fine to.

When using 4 DIMMS in Slots A1,A2,B1 and B2 the system will reboot several time then runs in to safe mode via POST and force me back to the BIOS as the system is unstable.

I have tried several Bios Versions to see if it would make a difference.

I know the RAM is XMP 2 compliant and does work in A2 and AB.
