The EPP can only be accessed if your board supports it. Otherwise you have to change the Ram multi to match the speed of the sticks. Good chance you'll also have to adjust the Vram and the timings too.

Yep, just go into your bios and select "Manual" control and adjust your settings to what you see on your packaging (timings/speed etc) and you'll be good to go.
