Ram Speed is lower than supposed to be

Go into the BIOS and enable XMP.

Hello

 

I recently upgraded from 8 Gb Hynix 2133Mhz to 16x2 DDR4 HyperX 2666Mhz

In BIOS they appear as 2666Mhz

In CPU-Z its detecting 1333 (I know double data rate stuff)

And in task manager ---> Performance -----> Memory it uses 2133 Mhz

 

I know my processor cant go above 2400mhz so why is it still using 2133 and not going to 2400Mhz? How can i make them reach 2400 ( especially that i payed alot for the ram)

My Ram are in channel B1 and B2 (recommended by asus A2 B2)

 

My rig is:

 

i5 7400 3.0Ghz boost to 3.5Ghz

32 Gb HyperX 2666Mhz

Aus Rog Z270F Strix

Zotac 1660Ti 6Gb GDDR6

480+240Gb SSD HIKVision

When installing RAM, always check the motherboard manual as it will tell you which slots to install your RAM into. I think on my motherboard it was the 2nd and 4th slot or something like that. Also go into BIOS and enable XMP profile.

Thank you everyone for helping me it worked

Now another question if my i5 7400 has 2400mhz max frequency for RAM and now it uses 2666 should I be worried? is this like overclocking

(pls dont bash me im a noob)
