Windows 7: BSOD during stress testing on new computer

Noticed something odd during the test that made me concerned. RAM clock speed was set to auto in the bios and windows posted it as 2000mhz. My ram is only rated for 1600. I changed the setting to match manufactures speed and have since fixed the issue. I can also under rate the ram at 1033 but no reason to do so. could that be all it was or is that a temporary fix? it leaves me puzzled that the bios did not auto detect the issue.

Yes,setting manually the right clock speed in some cases is the solution.
