hi looking for some help and advise
I have just upgraded my ram to 32gb corsair dominator platinum 2400mhz 1.35v
I've installed the ram fine and the Pc boots fine also works fine no crashing during games no blue screens
But it fails to set to 2400mhz in bios and reverts back to 2133mhz
I have managed to get the system to boot at 2200mhz but no more
I don't imagine I'll see much of a difference between 2200 & 2400mhz but it would be nice to have it running at 2400mhz
My system specs are as follows

Alienware Area 51 r2 2015
Windows 10
I7 5820k
Gtx 1080ti x2 (sli)
2tb Samsung 850 evo ssd
2tb hdd
32gb corsair dominator platinum ram
1500w psu
Bois version A12

Sorry if I've missed anything of you require
Thanks

First, be sure you have no dell OEM memory modules in place; they are NOT compatible with standard DIMMs, and they will drag the memory speed down in BIOS.

Have you enabled the XMP profiles in BIOS? You should choose the profile that gives you the speed you want.
