Windows 7: Help setting RAM speed

Help setting RAM speed

So I just bought a new Mobo/RAM combo.

Mobo: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3.

RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 4GB (2x2) 1600MHz kit.

Everything booted up fine (installing Windows as I type this), but when I went into the BIOS to check up on things, I saw that the RAM was set to 1333MHz. Now, I've never messed with RAM settings before (timings, speed, voltage, etc) so I could definitely use a little help here.

Thanks in advanced.

First of all, you could tell what is the CPU revision?! If C2, bad news - this revision has problems with memory controller. If C3, we can proceed. Well, I don't know the BIOS of your mobo, but I hope AWARD. The timings are those described in the packaging of memory - usually come printed on the sink too. Make changes to the BIOS only in fields that concern them. Do the same in the fields of voltage and speed. Save the changes and reboot the PC. If something goes wrong, like BSOD's, or other instabilities, it is likely that the voltage of the northbridge needs to be increased. In this case, test a micro-increasing voltage at a time, saving the changes in the BIOS and rebooting the PC. I must warn you about the risks of overclocking, so be aware.
I wish you luck and I hope it was useful!
Let us know the results!!!
