You should be able to access your BIOS and enable the XMP profiles in the memory settings. This will allow you to use the memory at its rated 1600 speed.

Go into your motherboard's BIOS by hitting F2 or DEL when the computer first turns on. You should be able to access memory area there.
It shows on the webpage for your memory that it is 1333 memory but was tested at 1600 and the settings for the memory are 9-9-9-24 with 1.5v

to look at what exact numbers you need to change for the 9-9-9-24 settings go download CPU-Z and click on the memory tab, it shows the names on each setting so you should be able to write those down for when you go into the BIOS to change them.
Just make sure you DO KNOW HOW to reset the bios on your motherboard using the jumpers on the board in case you set the wrong settings and it wont let you back into the BIOS. -probably wont happen but always good idea anyway.
I hope this helps a little.
