Your DIMM RAM itself only supports up to 2400Mhz.

To run @2666, you have to equip 2666Mhz DIMM RAMs.

Recent BIOS updates unlock 2666Mhz because some factory P52 equiped with 2666Mhz RAMs ran only at 2400Mhz previously due to the BIOS setting restriction. It just released that restriction, doesn't mean it can overclock your RAMs.

Sorry, I confused it with ***-CRC ...

OK, it should be ran on 2666, did you find any additional option related to RAM clock in BIOS?

Worked here too. After a Load Bios Default, setting up everything again and restarting...
CPU-Z and Windows show 2667 MHz.
And I got about 3% performance increase.
Soooo awesome!

So you got 2667 on the original 2400 RAM sticks? Or you had to install new 2666 RAM sticks to get this speed boost?
