So I had 16GB of HyperX 2666MHZ RAM, Today I bought and upgraded to Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 3000MHZ 32GB of RAM.

While I was aware I was not going to get 3000MHZ because I am using an HP Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-0xxx, I am actually getting 2133MHZ which is super low and I was expecting 2666.

My bios apparently does not have XMP because its a default HP bios, and while im not looking to "OVERCLOCK" like a mad man, im simply looking for my base motherboard supported speed. Im no PC expert but 16gb of 2666 worked so does 32gb of ram not work at 2666 and because theres so much memory it downclocked even further?

Can I download XMP to BIOS? (Stupid and odd question im sorry)
Can I use a software to go back to my standard speed?
Is the RAM speed capped with the amount of memory installed?
(As in 16GB was running 2666 and in theory so should 32)
or Am I "SoL?"

Sorry just a little panicky right now, bottom line if im SoL, i wont be mad to be honest I would be reusing this ram in a future build, even if I get diminished returns currently. Just curious to see how I can ATLEAST go to 2666, im not even asking for 3000mhz advertised speed.
THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCED!

Well I was told directly from HP if I got 3000 MHZ ram per se, That it would automatically "Downclock" to native supported 2666 by the motherboard, so why would it be 2133? Again I intend to reuse the ram later with a competent motherboard that will support said speeds, so far gaming seems pretty damn good, and no complaints, but part of me thinks even 2666 would be niiiiice.

So why would I need to specifically buy 32gb of 2666 if he told me it would downclock, because it did technically downclock, just way too much.
