4 sticks of RAM

I received the RAM I ordered, 2 sticks of DDR3-1600, but the RAM does not work at that speed, so I had to manually set it to DDR3-1333. This RAM is 2048MB each. 9-9-9-24 operating at 1333 MHz which is very poor grade. I am not sure if this RAM can be tweaked to lower wait states.

Now I have 2 more stick of DDR3 which are 4096MB each.

 

so running 4 sticks, the BIOS cannot load it up at any speed, yet the northbridge shows the RAM as present

 

so is there a BIOS problem which adversely affects my use of memory?

 

I am using my Phenom II X4 965 until I fix my other rig, so I am expecting this CPU to be able to use all 12GB of RAM
