    Make sure your memory is in ganged mode in the bios. Under the memory options, you will see a multiplier ratio (ie: 1:2, 1:3, 1:3.33, 1:4). Play around with those till you get the right clock speed. For example, on my MSI board, with 4gb of ddr3 1600, the multiplier ratio I use is 1:4.

    I am not 100% for Asus, but I would guess it is fairly similar.
