Runs fine stock - system will not post with XMP or manual overclock

Summary: I have decided to try G. Skill ram instead. After a fair bit of research they seem to have a strong reputation. Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 Intel 6700K - Overclocked to 4.8 16 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX (3000) Corsair H110i GT 2 Samsung Evo 850 250GB RAID 0 EVGA Hybrid 980 GTX TI Phanteks Luxe
Pros: Performs well at stock speeds.
Cons: I purchased this with the intention of running at 3000mhz. When applying the XMP profile or configuring it manually my system will not post.
Summary: Thinking that ram should at minimum be stable at stock spec. Chance this could be a motherboard firmware issue, but I've updated to the latest bios and still having random freezes and memory errors while at stock.
Pros: Low profile.
Cons: Installed into a new Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7 with a Core i7 6700K. At stock voltage and speed, WIndows crashes. Keeping stock speeds and timings, but bumping the voltage up to 1.3, it's seemingly stable.
Summary: I left speed at stock, and bumped the voltage to 1.3, and it seems to have stabilized. But I'm thinking that this ram should at the very least run at stock speed/voltage. Activating the XMP profile on the Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7 causes freezes during Windows load.
Pros: Low profile for clearance under huge CPU heatsinks like the Noctua D15.
Cons: I can't get this ram stable at stock speeds and voltage. Simply plugging in the ram, it should run at stock. But it will randomly freeze in Windows (and even during Windows install).
