P5W DH and Corsair ram question?

I just got a P5W DH and ordered this Corsair Ram:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145590

With the bios completely on Auto settings, the post screen shows that i have 5400 speed and not 6400 speed memory. is this normal? something wrong with the board? the ram?

If this is not a problem, what adjustmets do i need to make in the bios to resolve this issue.

Thanks,
Gupter

    just set the frequency manually in the bios to PC-6400
  2. On 975X based boards you have to force DDR2-800 Speeds as 667 is the highest clock "officially" supported when Intel made the MCH chip.
  3. Thanks for the help. I'll give it a try.
