I just got a GA-X48T-DQ6 board and some OCZ DDR3 1600 modules. They are only running at 1333 and I'm not sure how to get them to 1600. I have looked at the memory clock settings in the BIOS, but nothing seems to give me higher than 1333.

Am I missing something obvious?

Ok, it seems it won't let me set the DDR3 memory to 1600 unless I also clock the processor at 1600 FSB.

Let me guess, your using 4 memory sticks right?

not as if you will see any performance benifit with 1600mhz memory over the already overkill 1333mhz

on a side note, with DDR3 becoming more and more common, when will AMD switch over to DDR3? poor suckers thinking there DDR2 boards are future proof or something...
