Phenom II's can't handle that speed of RAM and having 16gb's will make things even tougher. Your best bet is to run it at 1333mhz and increase the CPU/NB voltage a little.

Let the timings run on auto for now. You may have to lower your overclock as well. First find what your CPU/NB is running for voltage at stock and raise it by .05. Before that, just try running the ram at 1333, AUTO timings and see if you have any issues.

first try it like erocker said try setting it manually and put it 1333mhz then check the stability

there is very little performance gain with ram running above 1866 .... less then 10% vrs 1600 .... you should beable to get the ram running stable at some ware between 1600 and 1866 ...
as erocker says the phenoms II IMC is relatively weak
