    Are those bad quality modules? Ironically I can get 2666 MHz by using a custom profile, but the XMP just won't work. Any way to test the modules and check if they are not working well?

    Hmmm so maybe the SPD firmware is corrupted.

    You can try the HCI Memtest: https://hcidesign.com/memtest/

    Run 6 instances of it to at least 100% since you have 6 CPU cores, and divide your unused RAM evenly between them.

    Those modules will always boot at 2400mhz as standard as that's their spd. You could try booting at 2400mhz and then manually changing to 2666mhz using the major timings listed in the xmp (leave the others how they are) and see if that boots.

    Is there an IPS display that I can swap? Preferably 120+hz

    Thanks! I'll give it a try

    EDIT: Tested the RAM with 6 instances for like half hour and no errors. So it seems only the SPD is corrupt. I wonder what happens when you mix RAM with differents SPD

    Welll I made a custom profile in BIOS for the memory, with the exact same settings as default, except the memory ratio raised from 9 to 10, and the system boots no problem with the memory running at 2660 MHz:

    Thanks for the links. That means the XMP profile should be part of the SPD, I think that's kinda weird the SPD gets corrupted

    That works too just some modules cant take the same primary latencies at higher speeds. Nice bonus :)

    Generally not worth it for 1070/1080 owners I would say.

    Is that specifically because of the price of the cards, or is it a performance issue with the rtx cards?
