I've problems to configure 3200mhz memory with a i7 8700 (non K)

I have an i7 8700 processor, the motherboard is an Asus B360-H Gaming and supports a variety of speeds in RAM. I have mounted 2x8GB to 3200 Mhz, however the CPU limits it to 2666mhz. I would like to know why? Call Asus and the problem is not theirs, change the BIOS and still persists. But I've read in other forums that the problem is with the processor. I need help please.

 

Thank you!

That is because the supported memory type for this processor is DDR4-2666. Check the 'Memory Types' in the following link: https://ark.intel.com/products/126686/Intel-Core-i7-8700-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-4-60-GHz- Amy C Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation
