Im using the Chaintech VNF4 Ultra Zenith VE motherboard which supports DDR400 memory. I ran a memory diagnostic with everest and it reports under memory: "Real Clock 161 Mhz(DDR)", "Effective Clock 322 Mhz"

My Dimm modules are as follows:

DIMM1: Corsair VS512MB400
DIMM2: SuperTalent SUPERT
DIMM3: Kingston K
DIMM4: Kingston K

All report the same settings for Memory Timings except the Kingston's report 2 timing: @200mhz and @166mhz. The first 2 just report @200mhz.

I want to get the most out of my system and run the Dual Channel DDR 400. Also my FSB is reporting at 200Mhz, im assuming that is due to the memory. I would like to know if i need to replace any of those ram chips with another one that supports the DDR 400, or do i need to switch around ram modules? Or even a bios setting to change would be helpfull.

The manufacturer's website is:
