Ok i'm just at the point of throwing this whole computer out of the window.
I changed my mainboard, processor and memory last week and have got the cpu at a stable 4.8ghz
Im now trying to play with the memory to see how far i can get it (Other forums are saying 2000mhz). Only one problem this new bios is giving me a headache, changed all the specs to what i'm starting with but every time i start it up i'm still running at 1600.

Ok heres a full build list.

mainboard:- Asrock z68 extreme3 gen3
cpu:- 2500k @4.8ghz
memory:- gskill ripjaw x black 6-8-6-24-1N 1600
Gfx:- Msi GTX460 1gb cyclone @ 880-1760-1900
Hdd:- Samsung 256gb ssd
All liquid cooled temps at 25ish idle and 55ish under full load

Memory specs from gskill

Link to forum as what i'm trying to achieve.

Just tried setting the speeds lower than rated and it still comes up at 1600 even at 1333 and 1066.

I'm starting to have doubts as to wether this is a memory or mainboard fault now as surely it should let me down clock them.
