Mobo manual says my motherboard has these modes: Auto, 800MHz, 1066, 1333, 1600, 1866, 2133, 2400.
Should I try setting it to 1600? Can I physically damage my system by setting it wrong? I've been having fairly random system instability and have pretty much replaced everything but my case with no help. I'm hoping it's a memory frequency thing. Guy at a PC repair shop told me that there are more frequency issues with DDR3 than there are with DDR2 (I don't remember the specific way he put it.)
Thanks for your help.

More aboutcheck memory frequency correct
CPUz says my memory is at around 669 MHz x2 = 1333MHz
Its DDR = double data rate.
U should enable the XMP mode and it will run @ 1600MHz without any other steps.
