I can't overclock my ram past 4266Mhz, motherbaord is a MSI MEG Z390 ACE running the latest bios 7B12v17

This is my second msi motherboard,
1st I had a msi gaming edge ac and I was able to get my ram 4266Mhz GSkill to 4400Mhz stable, but no further (limit of the ram)
2nd and current motherboard is a msi meg z390 ace and with my 4266Mhz GSkill at 4400Mhz it is not stable
- I have tried 2 different GSkill ram and both are unstable over 4266Mhz
- I am able to boot windows at 4500MHz with my GSkill RGB but no further

settings are
cpu i5 @ 5200Mhz (26x200Mhz)
ram GSkill 4266MHz 2x8 16gb kit @ 4400Mhz 18-19-19-64-790-2T
ram GSkill 3600Mhz RGB 2x8 16gb kit @ 4400Mhz 18-19-19-64-790-2T
ram GSkill 3600Mhz RGB 2x8 16gb kit @ 4500Mhz 28-31-31-2T-Auto
I have tried upto 1.4v for IO and SA and upto 1.8v for memory volts, and still not stable at 4400Mhz and over for both sets of ram

Am I missing some secret setting to allow my ram to be stable at 4400Mhz and higher or is it the limit of the motherboard ?

TIA ;)
