Did you check the motherboard memory QVL, was the memory on the list?
If it wasn't on the list, it may work on it's rated speed but sometimes not.

Which RAM ? RAM vendors have JEDEC compliant sets of RAM settings on the SPD but its the "overclocked" setting is what is normally advertised .... generally called the XMP setting.... On AMD its been called AMP, AXMP and DOCP. I'd look for a DOCP setting in your BIOS ... if that fails... use CPUz's SPD tab to determine specific settings which you can input manually (Advanced Mode) . may have to adjust SOC (1.2 max) and DRAM voltage (1.35 max)

Not your MoBo but procedure should be similar

"After entering the BIOS, the basic mode splash screen will appear. Here users can enable XMP (DOCP, Direct Overclock Profile), adjust fan profiles, and apply some 'EZ Tuning' for automatic overclocks that can be hit or miss. Pressing F7 enters the advanced mode. "

perhaps this will help too
