Asus Ramapage III Gene OC help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a Asus Rampage III Gene, Core i7 950 3.06ghz, and Kingston Hyper X 6GB 1600mhz Timings at 8-8-8-24.

The problem is that it is running @ 1066mhz speeds and Bios told me "CPU is locked"

What i want to do is to change it to 1600mhz speeds. I am using stock cooler on the CPU.

Can anyone help me plus i am new to overclocking. I rather have 1600mhz speeds.

Does the ram support XMP? If so, set your overclocking to XMP.
