Hi Ramguy,


I am having some issues and concerns about this new Intel Board, for one I bought the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz 12MB CPU. It’s rated at 1333. At the time I bought I didn’t realize that this was going to cause the ram to run at 1333. But in my Bios I’m seeing the ram running at 1066. I can’t figure out what’s going on or why. I have seen on other msg boards and on New Egg where I bought it others are complaining about the same thing. I have no idea how to over clock this board or what setting to change. I bought the CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) RAM. This ram is rated at 1600. Can someone tell me how to fix this or what setting to change on the board? It’s really frustrating that this board is becoming a real pain in the rear. I have also run into the same issue when trying to change some setting as the other guy pointed out about the board complaining at the DOS prompt where it detects an unsuccessful attempt to boot and resets the bios settings.


Also I want ot get the FSB to run at the 1600 if all possible.


Any help?
