That's the main parts, so now for the problem. First off, this one should be an easy fix. Where in the world does ASRock keep their memory stored in the BIOS? My ram is reading 1330 and I can't find the silly thing to take it off of auto read so that I can manually type in 1600.
RTFM: See the portion (starting at pg 77) about the UEFI BIOS, Overclocking settings and DRAM timings. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X79%20Extreme6GB/?cat=Manual
The not so easy fix, my motherboard has a problem at start-up. It always boots up three times (unless I take off the ACHI mode). Depending on where my SSD is (which holds my OS), it will say No Device Found, No Device Found, MKNSSD (My SSD). It boots all the time unless I change the order where my SSD isn't the last choice. So it's still playable, runs perfectly, no freezing, glitches, or anything else. Other than the start-up.
Sanity check: always make sure your primary boot device is plugged into SATA port 0
