Default need help with k8n bios won't set 3200 at 400mhz! o.O

I just notcied my compiter is clocking the bus at 166x2 has done this ever since I upgraded the bios i guess.. I realised this when i Opened nvidia Ntune..

In the bios i have it set to 400 but appearntly theres some weird glitch and above it it displays 166 and is unchangeable.. and the system is clocking the ram as pc2700

sorta hesitant to revert the bios as to not fuxor my board :/

and yes it's clocked at 166/333 =/ the cpu is still clocked at 2.2 which confuses me however

maybe i should turn down multiplier? o.o from 4 to 3

I found out what it was.. I had to flash the bios back to an old version.

appearntly to increase compatability they Made it hardwired in the newer bios so if you have two sticks of DDR3200 Double sided it will only run at 166/333

one will work fine but for 300 would have to use a single sided and double sided..

Rather stupid bios update if you ask me.
