Memory will not work past 1333Mhz

I just replaced (today) my AMD 945 cpu with the FX-4170 cpu.

The memory (Corsair 2X4GB 2133) had no problem running at 8.00 (1600Mhz) with the AMD 945.

But the memory will only work at 6.66 (1333Mhz) with the FX-4170, when I up the memory timing 6.66 to 8.00, motherboard comes back with an "OVERCLOCKING" error, and defaults back to 1333Mhz.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong?

Want to be able to get the memory up to 9.33 (1866Mhz).

Change the timings from AUTO to 9-9-9-24 and double check your DRAM voltages. You can slightly increase it to 1.55V to see if your memory controller may need the extra juice to accommodate the memory since Bulldozers are very power hungry.

It worked, changed the timings 9-9-9-24 and then set to 8.00 (1600Mhz), worked fine.

Then tried 9.33 (1866Mhz), so far works fine, still running memory at default 1.5 V.

Thank you
