    INTEL EXTREME DX58SO and Memory Speed

    sj470

      I have an Intel DX58SO board with Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Processor.  The memory is 3x2 Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 Platinum Series.  I'm told the motherboard defaults to 1066.  Why?  How do I get my memory working at 1600?  Don't I want it working at 1600 for maximum speed?  Why have it if you can't use it???  Any help would be appreciated.
