Default Once more on RAM Timings

Hey all, some of you may remember a thread I recently made about my 2Gbs of DDR400 (PC3200) RAM running at DDR333 (PC2700) speeds. I was told that this was to do with the memory controller on my Clawhammer version CPU limiting the speed.

What I was now wondering is whether or not there is any setting at all which I could change to allow correct speeds of 200mhz, as opposed to 166mhz. I really need the bandwidth for some games (such as BF2).

I was skimming around the net and found mention to T1 and T2 timings, and that AMD 64 memory controllers could be 'overridded' with T2 settings. Can someone explain what all this is about and whether it is indeed possible to run my 2gb PC3200 at the correct speeds?
