A88XM Gaming and A8-7600 - CPU Max DDR Speed 2133Mhz

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I am running an A88XM with an A8-7600.  I purchased 4gb x2  2400Mhz DDR3.  When I enable XMP I get the message above, "CPU Max DDR Speed 2133Mhz"  I read that the A8-7600 supported 2400mhz with AMP, so I purchased some AMD 2400mhz ram with AMD and I get the same message.  It doesn't not allow me to manually select 2400 either.  I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or am I just missing something.
Thanks!

 Max RAM speed supported by memory controller in that CPU is 2133. Trying to squeeze 2400 speed is not worth the effort as you would never see any real world performance increase.
 Any further questions/issues you may have re: OC it would be best for you to start a new topic in the OC section of the forum.
