Hi everyone. I got x99 system just a few weeks ago. I am using Crucial Ballistix BL8G32C16U4B x 4 pieces in total 32GB ram in my system. My problem is I can't go over 2600MHZ with this rams with XMP or MANUAL none of them makes difference. With single, dual or quad slot I tried both of them nothing worked. Can anyone help me about my situation? Thanks.

Hi, on this motherboard which is quad channel memory configuration, you should only use quad channel memory kits.
