My System Specs

Default 1866-Ram and Asus Sabertooth 990fx issue.

Hello friends,
I recently upgraded my Ram to 16gb G.Skill Ripjaws Series 1866 DDR3 . I have an Asus Sabertooth TUF 990Fx
Am3+ Motherboard. My issue is:
While the system boots and acknowledges the ram, it runs at 1333 or less in the bios. I tried manually setting
the ram to 1866 via bios but then the system doesn't boot--I have to reset via memtest and the system reverts back
to 1333. In fact, in the bios the highest manual option is 1856...not even the advertised 1866.

I've been researching a lot and have read somewhere that to get 1866 to boot you have to manually set your timings.
I have little idea how to do this. I looked and there are several timings....

Any thoughts? Btw, my CPU is a Phenom II hexacore running at 3.8 GHz.

Ideally, I'd like a nooby walkthrough on how to precisely get 1866 to run, given my specs.

Thanks in advance!
What we do in life, echoes an eternity. Strength and honor.
