No way.
Either you have defective Mushkin (highly unlikely), or you have a DFI board that's being retarded (far more likely), as there's no way that RAM cannot do its rated speed.

Likely something to do with straps being funny, or some hidden subtimings magically breaking things...this is precisely why i don't run a DFI board anymore.

I'd post on Mushkin's forums, & Greg will set you up with timings for your RAM, as honestly, something is broken if the RAM cannot do its rated speed, & knowing how much of a PITA DFIs are, it's likely that.
