Hi there, I'm trying to get my 1333mhz memory to run at that speed on my ASUS P6TD. The mobo states that it requires an overclock to run 1333mhz, so when I use the BIOS to set it at 1333 and save the changes it reboots itself but then won't boot. So I have to power it off and then back on. Once I do that it says the overclocking failed. I'm not much into overclocking, but I'd like to get my ram running at that speed since it's downclocking itself. On auto settings the mobo sets the memory to 1066mhz.

Is anyone using this setup and know what I might be missing? I'm using Corsair XMS 12gb, here's the stats

Enable the XMP profile rather than changing the speed.

This kit does not have an XMP profile.

All you need to do change the stock memory multiplier from x8 to x10 and you'll be at 1333. If it fails you may need to bump the memory controller voltage a bit 1-3 steps above the stock setting to compensate for the OC.
