I recently bought new RAM sticks ( DDR4 PC3200 2x16GB CL16 3200MHz ), but now I see in HWiNFO that my clock speeds are sitting at ~1070 and HWiNFO calls them "DDR4-2133 / PC4-17000"
My BIOS also says 2133MHz.

I have not indulged in any overclocking.

I find it weird that the box claims it is 3200MHz, but HWiNFO and BIOS says otherwise
Have I been scammed?
