Hello wwass,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel* Community.

 

According to our specifications, the Intel® Core™ i5-6300HQ Processor works with DDR4-2133, LPDDR3-1866, DDR3L-1600. Having the processor working out of the specs in a short or long time it may affect the performance of the CPU.

 

We do not validate third-party websites were the users confirm that the PC is working fine with 3200mhz.

 

As you are using a Laptop the best course of action would be to contact the Original Equipment Manufacturer directly for advice on changes, It is worth mentioning that Intel* just provides the CPU in stock settings, and we do not have control over any customization that the equipment manufacturer has performed.

 

Best regards,

Maria R.
