E8500 P5Q3, and Kingston 1333 DDR3 Ram

Good Day

I've got my system stable at 450 fsb, CPUx9 and ram at 1113 mhz. I can't get the ram stable at anywhere above 1113 mhz. I have 8 gig. Timings are 8-8-8-24. Am I leaving speed on the table with this setup? I believe the fsb is somewhere around 1400 mhz or so. This is the ram:Kingston Value RAM KVR1333D3N8K2/2G 2GB DDR3 2X1GB DDR3-1333 CL8 Dual Channel Memory Kit
I've got 8 gig.

CPU voltage on AUTO, ram voltage at 1.6 with a OCZ ram cooler (fans) on.

So what can I do to get the ram up to 1333 or does it even matter?

  1. Since you're overclocking, the ram speed will vary according to your overclock. Value ram doesn't run as well; I would leave it alone for while and be sure it's stable. You won't get it exactly at 1333 anyway when overclocking.
