I have a gigabyte h110m-h motherboard and a 2x8gb 2666mhz ram and an i3 6100. Can I run my ram on 2400mhz after i updated the bios even though im still using a 6th gen cpu?

That CPU doesn't support anything past 2133MHz.

But to answer your question regardless
That motherboard can handle 2400MHz, but your CPU will not. If you set your board to run it at 2400MHz you might get latency issues or worse, system crashes.

So it still depends on the cpu even though my motherboard have an intel xmp options?
Well normally overclock their CPU to get past these limitations but with an i3 6100 you have to make sure you overclock it properly, since it's a non-k variant.
Check out this thread on how to do that:

You can always try setting the RAM to 2400MHz and test out if it's stable or not and how well it performs compared to when it's at 2133MHz. You won't damage any of your components as long as you don't over volt your CPU or RAM beyond normal limits.
