RTX3080, x570-E GAMING and AMD RYZEN 9 5900x RAM

Level 7

I have a bottleneck between the CPU & GPU that one or the other is waiting on the other one.  The solution that was recommended was to use faster RAM.  I multi-task daily usually running several programs or website loaded.  Looking for advise on picking new RAM  I currently have.   I tried G.Skill tech support and they would only tell me what I already know from the memory finder tool.

G.SKILL 64GB (4 x 16GB) TridentZ Series DDR4 3200MHz PC4-25600 Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C14Q-64GTZ

One of the solutions I found was to get 3600+ RAM but it is almost impossible to find anything with a low CL.  I know that I can install faster RAM and it will clock down to what the motherboard can handle but I don't understand how the CL timings work. high MHz, and low CL is best.  I can only find 3600 in CL 16 & 18 and DDR4-4000 CL18, faster the MHz higher the CL.

I recently learned that I need a ratio of 1:1 for best performance.  Any advise on what to get or where to find a good tutorial.   Currently sitting at  1:16 😞  

Also made sure I am running the latest drivers, BIOS is up to date.
