Not able to increase Speed of RAM

HP Recommended
HP Omen Desktop PC 870-2XX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to switch the speeds of my CPU from DDR4 2133 to DDR4 2400.

I am running a i5-7400, 4 Cores, 4 Threads, supports up to 2400 RAM.

RAM I have purchased is x2 G. SKill 8GB Sticks.

Motherboards of the series support



  • Dual channel (2 DIMMs per channel) memory architecture
  • Four DDR4 DIMM (288-pin) sockets
  • Supports PC4-17000 (DDR4-2133)
  • Supports 4 GB and 8 GB DDR4 DIMMs
  • Supports up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems


Therefore 2400MHz RAM will be downgraded to 2133MHz RẠM.
