Have you pressed F10 to save & reboot? Without that, it will not be activated yet.

But you can just update to the latest beta BIOS, it will set everything for you: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MAG-X570-TOMAHAWK-WIFI/support#support-main-block-download

Update how-to:
1) Get the latest BIOS. It's the topmost one on the MSI support page for your board.
2) Extract the file and you will get a text file and the BIOS file. Put the BIOS file into the root folder of a USB stick/drive.
3) Enter the BIOS by pressing DEL during boot, go to "M-FLASH" in the BIOS.
4) Once M-Flash (the updater) is loaded, it will show a list of your drives. Select the USB stick and select the previously extracted BIOS file on there.
5) It will ask for confirmation and then update the BIOS. It's fully automatic from there, takes about two minutes.

Also, after you update it, make sure to enable A-XMP for your RAM. I see that A-XMP is off and your RAM is running at the safe fallback frequency of DDR4-2133, this is very slow and will bottleneck your CPU performance. With XMP enabled it should be over DDR4-3000, depending on your RAM model.

yes saved and exit'd

also xmp is basically oveeclocking my ram? overclocking IMO is bad, it'll deterate quicker

Not setting RAM to its A-XMP setting will affect your CPU performance quite a bit.

And you may also need to Update bios for fTPM to work correctly as it did not always work on older bios versions.

1) Then update your BIOS to the newest one

2) XMP is fully "official", don't worry. Most people use XMP, because the default safe frequency like DDR4-2133 nowadays bottlenecks the CPU performance way too much. It's not really considered overclocking, it is an official function of the board and RAM. Overclocking would be to go beyond the XMP frequency. Or with RAM that has a very high XMP frequency, you technically can go beyond the capabilities of the CPU, but such RAM is expensive and mostly bought by people that want to do exactly that. You probably have a way safer XMP frequency with your RAM, like DDR4-3200, which is no big deal. About deterioration: XMP will not do that. You can run at XMP speed for decades and everything will continue to work.

Well, i bet he hasn't bought higher-frequency RAM than DDR4-3200 XMP anyway, if he thought that it's overclocking.

And you can take a nice screenshot by pressing F12 in the BIOS and saving the image to a FAT32 USB drive. You might have to convert the picture to PNG or JPG afterwards to reduce the file size.

You are losing lots of performance by not enabling XMP, because the RAM is only running at DDR4-2133 with loose timings.
Basically you are getting nowhere near the RAM performance that you paid for, and your CPU is slowed down by this low-performance setting.
