HP Pavilion ram upgrade help

My brothers Hp pc HP Pavilion p6-2133w had 8 gigs of ram but was rated at 1333mhz. I bought my new PATRIOT 8GB ddr3 ram at 1866mhz and installed it,
but when I tested the ram it was still running at 1333mhz. The bios has no options to change the speed...Is there something I can do to change the speed.

    No. Oem boards don't have many bios adjustments to prevent system crashes. I would sell the 1866 ram, since changing boards requires a new windows coa.
