hi there here is a link for your motherboard including drivers and manuals: (double check to make sure this is the one)http://www.msi.com.tw/program/support/down...?UID=624&kind=1
also , are you comfortable with going into bios and having a look ? that way we could clarify if this may be a hardware defect or the clock speed is just set to lower than what you require.

ok thanks for the link, but it doesnt really help me, i know in my bios, i have a setting from 266 to 400, with 2 options to auto or limit, auto says 333, and when i set it manualy to 400, then when i boot up agian it says 333mhz, dont make sense its pc3200 ram, it has to be ddr 400 or ddr sdram

If an updated BIOS software is supposed to solve that problem, they explicitly mention that.

Things about FSB are so confusing on the web. Just look at the table Here
to get more confused. As DDR uses the multiplied FSB speed, we can conclude that to use a DDR 400 , u need to set FSB to 200!
I've been reading about this stuff for a while but i'm still uncertain.
