HWMonitor is unreliable on the new AMD platforms. Use HWiNFO64 for proper readings and go from there. Only use a single monitoring program or you can get bad readings...
Max boost, assuming adequate cooling, is 4.2GHz on some cores using XFR.

There won't be a huge difference, no...but it is of course nice to run at rated speeds. Maybe try setting up the RAM manually, not using DOCP.
and try playing with DRAM voltage and SOC voltage. Try SOC up to 1.2v (if auto isn't setting enough already) and maybe a bit over 1.35 for DRAM voltage...1.36..1.375
Just set RAM speed in BIOS and primary timings...
The memory controllers on these CPUs are a bit picky....best to stick with QVL if possible and best to go with Samsung B Die kits if you can get them. Like G.Skill kits with flat 14 timings (14-14-14-34)
The reason why I bought this memory kit is simply because it was the lowest price available.
Thanks again for your reply, Arne! I changed to manual 3200MHz and set my timings to the rated 16-18-18-36 at 1.36v. I have also increased my SOC to 1.1925v and started Prime95. I won't get to see the results until I get home later.
I've read that perhaps loosening the timings can also help with stability without having to increase the voltage. Any input on this? If so, how does one loosen timings? haha I have no idea. I know those numbers go up. When I was running 2800MHz, I used 14-16-16-32 (actually found this info via HWiNFO64 when I clicked ram and saw the supported module timings under the certified profile).
The reason why I bought this memory kit is simply because it was the lowest price available. This was my Boxing Day Best Bang for Buck Build! haha The Ryzen 5 2600 was $209, B450-F mobo was $125, and ram was $300 (CAD plus tax). When I checked the QVL for this board, there were hardly any 32GB 3200MHz kits on there. Basically all the parts in this build had significantly reduced prices. I couldn't resist vs waiting for Ryzen 3000.
So what happened with this? I'm having a similar problem. I have G Skill Aegis 3000mhz ram and I can't run past 2800mhz either. What is the issue? I'm not familiar with how to set RAM timings manually. Did this work for you?
I won't get home till later tonight but I'll reply back with my results. I'm hoping manually setting my values will be better than using DOCP. I'm also hoping that my increased SOC voltage will solve the problem without having to exceed the 1.35v rating for the ram.
40.5 multiplier also looks stable with AUTO settings.
I'm able to get 41.0 with my Coolermaster 120mm AIO water cooler. I have the same processor and motherboard as you which is why i came in here.
