Excellent, I assumed so, but thought I would confirm with you guys as this ASRock board I have now was listed on NewEgg to support up to 4400Mhz memory and obviously that was not the case. This is the first time I have bought a board that was so blatantly just not capable of doing what it was advertised to do; flat out false advertisement unfortunately. Heck, even the last system I built just had a cheap $50 AMD GigaByte board and it was able to overclock anything on it fine, but this ASRock board is locked down tighter than a bank vault.

Thanks again for the help guys, you guys rock!

I got my MSI MEG Z490I Unify board installed last night and you guys weren't kidding, this board is awesome! Everything is super easy to adjust and I was able to set my desired cpu memory with no issues at all.

Thanks again everyone for the great input as you guys have helped make me one happy camper with one super speedy PC!
