Most motherboard vendors list support up to 2667, anything past that is noted that it's OC based and not guaranteed.
I have nothing against you personally, but after seeing another user flood this thread with the same question at least twenty times is incredibly frustrating, especially when several people have tried to explain things and help that user. Basically anything higher than standard DDR4 Speed (2133) requires specific kits, a bclk oc, b-dies, or motherboards with newer microcode/more tested memory kits.
TOTALLY agreed, its unbelievably frustrating. A little bit of reading goes a long way, some people tend to lack common sense though.
GUYS, THIS IS A TOTALLY BRAND NEW ARCHITECTURE AND PLATFORM THAT IN EVERY SINGLE WAY WORKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENTLY THEN INTEL. THE RAM XMP ON MOST RAMS IS XMP WHICH IS INTEL BASED OVERCLOCKED RAM SPEEDS. For the past decade Intel has pretty much owned the market. Most BIOS developers just refurbish the bios to work on newer chips, not much has changed between z87 to z270.
People need to understand that as early adopters were also pretty much beta testers. I knew that going on and have ZERO problems doing so, i in fact LOVE trying out new software/hardware/games. Hell i even write game reviews on game-debate.com for a reason haha.
If you want something stable thats going to work 100% of the time guaranteed buy a 7700k. I am perfectly fine running at 2933mhz ram with a cpu that DESTROYS my 4690k by almost 3 fold in cinebench and cpuz and whatever else i throw at it. Gaming is a different story but i knew that going in.
