Considering your system specs show a Z170 board and a Skylake CPU that only officially supported DDR4-1866/2133mhz memory you are likely limited due to the platform and integrated memory controller on the physical CPU for that specific kit as those were Intel's first mainstream CPUs that used DDR4.

I was using HyperX fury 2X8GB 2666 and they ran at 2666 without overclocking and without activating XMP.

These run at nearly 2900mhz. If it doesn't support over 2133 how come it gets to 2900?

Is there no way to make them work faster?

By manually setting them in the bios?

Even though you haven't provided the exact part number of the specific kit we only have two Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB (2x16GB) 3600mhz kits of memory. Based on the technical specifications of those two kits NEITHER are compatible with the Z170 platform as you can see in the links below. The issue at hand here is going to be the integrated memory controller and/or older Intel 100-series platform not being able to run that specific kit at those speeds.

 

The fact that you are still able to get 2933mhz shows you are indeed being limited by the platform you are on for your specific kit of memory. As for official memory support that I mentioned in my original post refer to the Intel Ark link for your CPU. Anything over the officially supported speeds is considered an overclock and it does indeed add additional stress upon the physical CPU due to the stress the integrated memory control is put under when attempting to run faster memory that it was officially designed for.
