Hi all. I have looked and scoured the internet but to no avail. I have a Lenovo Ideacenter Y720 Cube-15ISH https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-desktops/y700-series/Y720-Cube/p/99IC9Y20274
It has the i7-7700 cpu and the spec sheet specifically states the ram speed supported is 2400MHz. I have inserted two Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000MHz but I am only getting 2133MHz. I have updated BIOS to latest edition and this system does not support XMP. Why is this happening? There seems to be so many different Specs and chipsets and other variables that make it hard to determine 1: Why 2: Can it be fixed or am i stuck. I just want th2400MHz is al l:(. Please help!
 
The Lenovo Ideacenter Y720 Cube-15ISH uses an Intel H170 chipset motherboard which came out for the 6th gen when the memory spec was only 2133mhz, so that is the highest the motherboard supports, even if you are using an i7 7700 is from the next-gen when memory spec was raised to 2400mhz.

So you will be unable to run the ram above 2133mhz.

OK. Thanks for quick reply. What I still find strange is as to why the spec sheet on the lenovo website states both that it features a h170 chipset and that it supports ram upto 2400MHz. Maybe a little underhanded advertising. I mean it does accept the higher speed ram bit just won't run it at those speeds....
