There are two steps in you BIOS you need to pay attention too. First is the MIT ( Motherboard Intelligent Tweeker ) section, you need to change the "Set Memory Clock" to manual. Then the option below it, memory clock, will light up and you can change the basic setting from 1333 to 1600. The advanced section, DRAM E.O.C.P can be used if you want to set the CAS latency and the rest of the more advanced settings. Check with you RAM manufacturer to get the rest of the settings. The first 4 starting with CAS latency are the most important. That is why you typically see memory timings of 1600, 9-10-9-27 or something similar!
You really should consider reading the manual:

When I change memmory clock to 1600 MHz and DRAM E.O.C.P after restart PC show error - "The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking. Last setting in bios may not coincide with current H/W states. " and it will restore to settings before.
So I think I have to set up something more, but I have no idea what. CL on RAM should be 8-8-8-24 (it's on RAM module).
