Default Enabling XMP leads to crash

So I decided to turn on the XMP feature through BIOS for my memory

I have the Corsair vengeance LPX 16gb running at 3600MHz

But, when I turn XMP on in the BIOS it causes my computer to crash saying "overclock failed"

This is my system currently:

CPU:

-Inter i7-6800K (I have not overclocked it)
-X99A MSI Carbon PRO mobo
-EVGA 1070 GTX
-EVGA Supernova 750G PSU

Here is my CPU-Z Validation

RAM speed is too high for the machine. Highest it'll probably do without tweaking is 3200.

What would be the best way to get it at 3600?

You're probably not going to unless you're an advanced overclocker, which I'm going to assume you're not if you're here asking. Anything above 2666 on X99 causes a BCLK strap of 125MHz which also messes with the CPU speed. Because of this it requires you to manually tweak CPU voltage settings and usually manually adjust other RAM based timings/voltage. Haswell-E and Broadwell-E don't really like RAM speed much higher than 2666 without a lot of tinkering.THose high speed kits are mainly made for Skylake and Kaby Lake, but to get the full performance of your machine the speeds aren't required at all.

Whatever is stable. You might find that 2800 or 3000 might be the highest before you start having issues.

Also, just for reference you won't see any perceivable gains by running over 2400 for 90% of your usage.

I'll probably just leave it as it is.
