I recently bought 2 RAM sticks with 4GB each and a speed of 3000MHz and I added them to my slots with the same RAM but a different speed, 3200MHz. The RAM is the Corsair Vengeance LPX model. Right now my RAM speed is set to 2666MHz but previously it was at 2133MHz. I used the XMP thing in the bios and it changed the speed up to 2666MHz and that's it, it will not let me pick higher speeds. I didn't want to buy faster RAM sticks because I thought 4 of my RAM sticks will run at the same speed of 3000MHz ( and I didn't want to waste money ) but the speed is quite below it. My motherboard is a Gigabyte z270P-D3.
