I told you they'd tell you to do that. You paid for performance memory, don't let them downgrade you to generic settings - by doing that they would've ripped you off! FIGHT FOR THE RMA

I was planning on trying to OC at some point, but using the multiplier. I'm going ahead and trying it right now just to see if it helps. However, is this something I should be willing to do permanently to get this RAM to work?
What I seriously don't understand either is why they'd tell you to run 240Mhz bus frequency, that would be overclocking - perhaps unnecessary overclocking - of the bus speed. I guess you should try it, different bus speed + different multiplier might work.
If I understand this right, they're telling you to set the bus clock to 240Mhz and use the 6.67x memory multiplier (which would normally be used for 1333Mhz, 200 x 6.67). 240 x 6.67 = 1600Mhz. The different multiplier may work, who knows it may just be a crapped out x8 memory multiplier. I guess try this and see if it suits you. Note that upping the bus clock brings everything up, you may want to set PCI-E clock manually to 100Mhz and lower CPU/NB multipliers so they run at their stock speeds or lower whilst your bus speed is at 240Mhz.Edited by xd_1771 - 2/5/11 at 11:36am
