Faster RAM can always slow down to slower speeds, you're just paying a premium for performance you're not getting is all.

Maybe you can set a higher Memory Clock or DRAM Frequency in BIOS. It depends on the motherboard/chipset. Which motherboard do you have? And what is the model number of the memory modules?
