Im having the same problem! My motherboard will run 1333 and 1066 but i accidently bought 1600 ram......... It runs but my computer will randomly restart every now and then and I suspect this is why... But I dont know how to underclock it.

Yes you can run 1600MHz memory in a motherboard which only supports 1333MHz. This is because 1600MHz is the maximum clock speed that the memory is rated at, therefore you can happily run it at 1333MHz.

@beitzel
Just set the RAM at 1333MHz, there should be a DRAM:FSB setting or something similar some where. Just look for it, it should be on the page where you set the FSB.

Hope that helps.

[EDIT]
beitzel15 please note that the advice I said was for your Core 2 system not your i7 as I didn't know. Refer to your thread for my post.
