Dual Channel memory kit rated at 3200 MHz won't work right

Your board and chip won't support over 2666mhz. Check out the specs on the gigabyte website, the i3 is not listed for the xmp profile.  There is a reason that chip is on right now for $120cad.   I'm rechipping a system right now and it was tempting for the price but I've settled on the i5 9400 as it's much more capable but over twice the price.

It only lets me get up to 2533MHz, not 3200 I tried XMP enabled / disabled, 100 and 133 memory ref clock, Max multipier is 25.33, memory odd ratio enabled / disabled / auto. No combination is working.

Full specs?

 

You could possibly have a motherboard that doesn’t allow memory past 2666MHz.

What RAM is it exactly? Also, your PC specs?  So folks can help troubleshoot they need to know a few things.

Gigabyte b365m DS3H

It should support a max of 2666 and not 2533, as far as I can tell.

It won't boot at the 2533 MHz config and with memory odd ratio disabled, 24 system memory multiplier and 133 ref clock only goes up to 2400 mhz

I would be tempted to try a 2666 module with that chip or a more powerful chip with your memory.  Ram compatibility is a common issue as far as I've seen.  There might be a voltage problem with the setup, are you able to adjust it?
