So I had Two Gskill Ripjaws CL 19-19-19 46 1.2v DDR4 2666 MHz 8GX1 DIMM, (16 GB) With my MSI H310 M M2 Pro Motherboard running at 2666 MHz. However, I had upgraded to a Gskill Ripjaws CL 16-18-18-38 1.35v DDR4 3200 MHz 16GX1 & a Corsair Vengeance CL 16-18-18-38 1.35v DDR4 3200 MHz 16GX1, (32 GB) and while both Modules are being detected, they only run at 2133 MHz, as the Bandwith shows 2133 MHz. The Memory clock and current clock both shows 2666 MHz, and I have tried turning on XMP, and Switching the clock to 2666 MHz and saved the Overclocking Profile and Still working only at 2133 MHz, the bandwidth showing 2133 MHz, but all other relevant indicators show 2666 MHz.
P.S:- Running a MSI bios 5.

Why would you mix your RAM? E.g why get G.Skill and Corsair RAM? Why not buy the RAM set, where two sticks come in a sealed package, giving you a guarantee that both sticks work together?

In any event, read this to know why it happens and what (if any), you can do,
