If your BIOS has a SoftMenu, all access to overcloking setting will be there.

The settings for Ocing your RAM and other components are located in the Frequency/Voltage Control menu in your BIOS.

Refer to Page 49 of your mobo manual.

as you can see by frame one i can oc the 64bit 3400 up to 2750mhz from the stock 2400mhz without any probs but surely the ram should not be running so slow and there are no adjustments that i can find

I do not overclock, but it may be that you made the RAM ferquency too high osthe mobo defaulted to reducing the freq.

I am sorry, but this is as far as I can help with your issue, good luck.

I agree with mfillpot

I'm guessing there is a "Performance" or "Expert" setting which would allow you to adjust CPU and MEM settings. I don't have that board but my DDR400 Ballistix 2x512s run CAS2.2.2.2 T1 at 400 and 433 Mhz.

Some settings used at anandtech.com w/Ballistix DDR400 in a 64 board setup.
http://www.anandtech.com/memory/showdoc.aspx?i=2226&p=9
400 and 433 Mhz timings stated 2-2-2-10 2.6V 1T
It hits as high as 594 Mhz

You have the memory running the wrong ratio, somewhere in advanced chipset settings where you adjust memory timings there should be an option called something like "memory clock" or "memory speed" it's 400MHz or Auto by default, but it looks like you have it set to 333MHz, go in and set it to 400MHz, that'll set a 1:1 ratio with the FSB and memory, but if you're going to run 1:1 you'll need to loosen those memory timings a bit

If he stays under 433Mhz he shouldn't have to... Ballistix should be able to handle that much at the default settings and voltage
I got 436Mhz at the default CAS2.2.2.2TI at default voltage w/the same mem but you never know because it is never the same unless he got the same batch I did
