Ok so I just booted up my newly completed system (in sig), and decided to root around in the UEFI for a while. Right off the bat I noticed that the RAM is only running at 1333MHz not the 1600MHz its billed as.
Now, my question is: the Biostar TA990FXE says it can handle 1600MHz RAM with no overclocck, will this problem correct or am I stuck with 4gigs of Vengeance RAM running way under its price point?
Is a BIOS flash in order here?

You should be able to set the ram speed in the bios.

Well see I would but It won't let me.
I go to the NorthBridge section and it grays out everything but a few unrelated port options.
Besides it should support this right out of the box...
