all x99 motherboards have issues running ddr4 ram at advertised speed. it's how the motherboard overclocks. typically you can't boost the speed of the ram to advertised speeds without overclocking the cpu in some way as well.
it's the side effect of being an early adapter to ddr4 ram. There are dozens of good guides on the net for how to both overclock an x99 motherboard and overclock the ram to it's advertised settings. I suggest you hunt those down and start figuring it out.
On the bright side you're getting a solid look at how overclocking used to work back in the day before all these overclock friendly bios came out. Back in the day you had this exact same issue come up. Now i am NOT an expert on overclocking the x99 chipset but from what i recall when bumping the clock speed of your ram, you're basically bumping the clock speed of your BCLK which in turn bumps the clock speed of the cpu; because the clock speed of the cpu = BCLK*cpu multiplier
so your problem will likely be solved in the end with a bit of tinkering. If you need help with this process just post back in this thread. while i might not be an expert on x99 overclocking, I've been overclocking pcs since the mid90's so i probably can give you some pointers to the process.
Thank you for the quik reply. i am actually not at my computer at the moment, but i will be back it all night again. and will be trying everything possible.
does adjusting the BCLK strap overclock my gpus also? becuase when i had my bclk at 125.0 to run my ram at 3000, my gpus were getting hotter then normal.
also, with the oc genie, there are xmp prifiles setting for my ram. but none have worked. and the only one that seemed to work was the 3000mhz xmp which amped my bclk to 125 and so on.
i would like to just have it all manually set up.
dou you think it is possible to run an oc with bclk at maybe 100-110.0 with cpu at 4.2-4.4, and staying under 1.35vcore?
