RAM XMP Profiles fail to reach targeted speed

  1. Hi All,

    I'm really struggling here. I've just purchased some Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Red DDR3 Memory with the Specs CAS 12-13-13-35, 1.65V at 2666MHz. I got 2 sets (2x4GB per set, 16GB overall, all 4 slots are occupied). When I choose the XMP profile, the computer fails to post, it resets and then tells me "overclock failed". To get it to boot I set the speed to 2133MHz and it is now stable.

    MoBo is an Asus Maximus Vi Hero (Z87) and a Haswell Core i7 4770K with a H60 closed loop on it.
    Power supply is a Corsair AX750.

    My question is, why can I not hit the advertised speed of 2666MHz? Do I need to send more voltage through them?

    Thanks for your help in advance.
