You have to set the RAM speed in BIOS. Should change it from AUTO to 1600 MHz and it should work like a champ. Had this problem with the mobo in my sig rig and my GSkill RAM, changed it in BIOS and it works fine.

To get the running frequency of the RAM you have to double the value under DRAM Frequency in CPUID... meaning that you are currently running at 800 x 2 = 1600 ... I have the exact same RAM running smooth at 1600 (8-8-8-20 1T) with the setup I have listed below.

its already running at 1604mhz, DDR means double data rate and you multiply the speed by 2 to get the ddr speed. 400mhz on cpuz is 800mhz ram... 800 = 1600mhz

CPU/NB Frequency only allows me to change it to presets like 1600/2000 etc.

Any help?

You need to increase your FSB in order to raise your NB on your processor. If you bump your FSB around 250, lower your ram multi one notch and I think it'll run around 1666 (at 250 fsb) and then you can reduce your CPU multi to stock clocks (or OC'ing it) and now your NB should be higher and you'll have a few more options to run it at.
