hey man, until bulldozer is out, there is no way current phenom chips will work at anything over 1900mhz as the memory controller on the cpu supports upto 1600mhz. Bulldozer supports upto 1866mhz and then anything over this is classed as a overclock upto 2133mhz. I have the same board and ram as you and on my phenom 955 c2 chip i can only get my ram to post at 1880mhz and cpu at 4ghz. i have booted into windows at 4133mhz, 2860NB and 1880mhz ram, but blue screened.
Check this video from JJ at Asus on how overclocking works on this board. He is using 2133mhz dominator gt sticks too...
