I purchased 3x2 gb sticks for adding 6 more gb to my existing 3 gb of memory. The existing 3 gb of memory is Patriot PVT-33G1600ELK (3X1 gb sticks). I have an MSI Pro X58 motherboard and an i7 920 chip. I'm running windows 7 pro 64. My issue: When I boot it up, my post screen shows 1066 memory, although I know this is 1600, and I thought I set my bios to the right speed, being 9-9-9-24. I do not know enough about overclocking in order to set my memory to the correct settings __________________

Will raising my memory affect my cpu too? Here is what I have after I adjusted my bios ....running h/w monitor shows 65-70c under a load but my fans really need to be cleaned out what do I need to look for to adjust my memory from 2:8 to 2:12?
