BIOS doesn't detect the ram speed

HI, I just bought a brand new system and the mobo doesn't detect the 2.3.3.6 dual ram it suggests 3.6.8.5 or something like that. I've got asus A8N32SLI deluxe, with 2gb corsair xms DC ram.

I can go into manual settings but I have no idea what the rest of the numbers stand for and there is allot more settings than just the 4 #.

Also I just manaul set the CL to 2 which I couldn't boot the comp.

further more the ram is pc3200 ddr400, but the bios runs them at 200mhz grrrrr.

I updated the bios but still no luck.

Any1 know how to fix this mobo and auto detect ram stuff?

    That is what your RAM is supposed to run at.

    200MHz Clock 400MHz effective ( DDR ) it just moves data on the leading and trailing edge of the clock.
