Unfortunately, you have a kit of memory that may not be stable at 1600 on your board. We recommend memory from this list.

Also, can you list all the settings you have made in your BIOS for CPU, RAM, and voltages.

I believe you need to change the RAM voltage to 1.65 in order for it to work at 1600mhz. At least that is what 1600mhz is rated for on Corsairs product specs.
