    Yea, it's loading the default speed of 1333.
    XMS3

    Change the BIOS there on that page. "Load Profile Setting" and select one of the XMP 1600 choices offered. You might have two that appear the same. Most likely one is CL1 and the other CL2.

    You can use CPU-z's "Memory' tab to determine CL1 and or CL2
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Thanks for all your help, wardog.

    Here is what I see in the memory tab. There is one CL value that reads "9.0 Clocks". Is this what you're speaking of? Not too familiar with RAM settings. :(990FX Extreme3 + new FX 8320 not working-capture-png

    I'm truly sorry. I got immediately distracted as to why all of a sudden I'm double posting.

    References to CL1 and CL2 above should have been CR1 or CR2. Command Rate.

    Change the BIOS there on that page. "Load Profile Setting" and select one of the XMP 1600 choices offered. You might have two that appear the same. Most likely one is CR1 and the other CR2.

    See in that screen shot of CPU-z, Dram Frequency of 665.2? That's equal to 1330.4, or the working equivalent of 1333. When you go in and choose one of the XMP 1600 Profiles that number will change to ~800.

    DDR = Double Data Rate. That's why the number there in CPU-z is approximately halved.
