GL704GW - Crucial Ballistix 2666Mhz RAM running slower - How to fix this?

Pretzel

I have installed a 2x16GB set of Ballistix DDR4 2666Mhz RAM.

This one in particular:
https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr4/bl2k16g26c16s4b/ct16732831

The memory is running at slower speed.
CPUZ recognizes the brand and says it runs at 1333Mhz,
97062

The system does not recognize the brand and says it runs at 2400Mhz
97064
97063

Either way, I can't find a way to switch it to its full speed potential.

Any tips?

Hi,
your memory is ranked at up to 2666MHz. Since you're running two memory sticks they are divided into 2x1333MHz which when running both equals to 2666MHz. This is my noob explanation and I don't pretend to be true.
My G513RC has support for memory sticks at DDR5-4800MHz. I have installed 2 memory sticks and they are divided into two 2400MHz.
