So. System specs:

Phenom II x4 840
gigabyte GA 870a USB3
CORSAIR XMS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 1600
Sapphire HD 6770 1GB (oc@)900Mhz

I plan on using this system as a stock gaming computer, so with that in mind...

1) my processor only supports ram speeds of upto: 1333Mhz.
2) my MOBO supports ram speeds: DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066
3) my ram is 1600mhz.

Can I do anything about this? Is there anyway I can take advantage of 1600mhz worth of ram? If not, is there anything I can do to et close to that, Or...is it even worth it?
