Hey guys I just built this new system with a Maximus v formula motherboard and i7 3770k and when I enter bios it shows my ram running at 1333 MHz instead of 1600mhz. Anyone have any ideas what's going on? I'm almost done installing windows now and a couple of boot device errors on the q code but other than that looking good. Any help would be great thanks guys

Try setting the frequency manually in the BIOS and make sure the voltages and timings are right, if not set them too. I have the same RAM and had a similar problem but in my case my motherboard did not support 1600MHz unless it was OC'd so I just changed the settings manually in the BIOS and it worked fine. Also make sure you have the 1600MHz version of that RAM, it comes in a few different speeds!
