ram not working with p67 pro3

hello, ive got myself new pc, which is: i7 2600k/3x2gb ddr3 1600 8x8x8x24 ocz/be quiet psu 730w/gtx 570/asrock p67 pro3 b3/ blah blah
the thing is, i cant get the ram to work, i checkd every single stick alone and it works, tho it recognizes it with 1066mhz or smt like that.. when i plug second stick pc turns on with black screen (dual channel), once i put together 2 sticks near each other not in dual channel it turnd on and showd 4gb, still 1066.. i tried to change dram voltage in bios to 1.65 or 1.50 from auto w/e it is but didnt help, tried changing different options and max i got was 1 stick working at 1333mhz. i didnt bother puting there 3 sticks cuz im not sure how it wud work, even if it wud work, im planing to buy fourth same for 2x dual channel and then try. also i cant change dram timing in bios manually, its set on auto and when i try to put it on manual and wirte some value (CL 8-8-8-24 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)) it always gives me minimum like 5, auto is on 7 i think.

I once tried to use four DIMMs that were originally from two triple channel kits (used on an X58 motherboard) on a P67 board. I couldn't get the RAM to run at its rated frequency (DDR3-1600) by any manual settings (timings, voltage).

Maybe you should try a dual channel kit or two. DDR3 is pretty cheap at the moment, at least in the USA.
