The reason your ram doesnt show up as 7-8-7-24 is because its designed for intel processors. Just go into bois and change ram voltage to 1.6v than change first 4 numbers of timing to 7-8-7-24 If you system is unstable try 8-8-8-24

Depending on the mobo, usually there is a page that shows the numbers and also an option that changes from Auto to Manual - Once you change to Manual you can change the timings
