Memory Is Underclocked, Can You Explain?

I just OC everything i have to a stable level, and then i saw my memory was running at 2133mhz when its listed at 3000mhz. The mobo allows for 3000mhz, the processor allows for 3000mhz, and the bios is updated. I had to manually clock it to 2600mhz but i couldnt push it past else it would become unstable. Anyone know whats wrong?

Heres my userbenchmark:

  1. do you know if your motherboard does support that memory speed? we can't do much without your system specs

  2. CPU supports memory to 2133 unless you overclock the CPU.

    The CPU has the memory controller on board so as you crank up the CPU speed you can crank up the memory speed.
    absolutely nothing wrong you just have to overclock to realize those memory speeds.
    Motherboard does support the higher memory speed.
    benchmarks link have system specs

    All ram runs at 2133 until you either manually oc it or go into bios and enable xmp.
