Hello there, I bought the Team 8GB (2 x 4GB) T-Force DDR4 PC4-24000 3000MHz Desktop Ram and as it stated its 3000mhz. I noticed that when I got to the bios it says 2133mhz so I decided to change the xmp profiles but it only has up to 2400mhz. Can someone please tell me what is it I'm supposed to do.

1Tb 7200rpm HDD
 
The fact that the DRAM CAN be run at 3000MHz doesn't mean it will run at that speed in your build. For that to happen both the CPU and motherboard must also be able to run it at that speed in a stable manner.

Anything over 2400 MHz is considered overclocking and, as such, is working outside the guaranteed parameters.

You might check on the MSI web site for a BIOS upgrade that will allow you to run the DRAM at higher speeds. Look in your motherboard manual to determine how to run the DRAM at speeds high than 2400.
