Phenom IIs are NOT all 6-core... and AMD does NOT say running the RAM @ 1600 MHZ. will damage anything. Whomever stated this is incorrect.

I and many other folks have run Phenom II CPUs for years with the RAM @ 1600 MHz. without any issues what so ever. The RAM frequency does not damage the IMC. CPU-NB over-voltage for a long period of time might but it's not likely unless the voltage is ridiculously high which causes excessive heat too.

Did you try upping the CPU-NB voltage, as might be necessary for handling 4 DIMMs at DDR3-1600?

Oh yes, I certainly did that. I tried making various changes from some instructions I found. Nothing I seems to do could keep it stable.

I dont think my motherboard/CPU combination can handle 4 DIMM's of DDR3 @ 1600.

Lately I have 2 8GB DIMM's of DDR3 @ -1600 stable on my asus board but only in the orange slots. Im leaving the other ones empty.
