Thanks for the help guys.
Just check to see if your memory is on the supported list for your mother board, that may be why it will only work at a lower frequency.
You can also try one stick at a time. Put one stick in and try to OC it up to you the frequency you want. If it works, try the other one, you may have an issue with one of the sticks which is preventing you from being stable at the higher frequency.
I flipped through the install guide for my mobo and in the RAM section it recommended to use slots A2 & B2. I moved my RAM from A1 & B1 to A2 & B2. Now it works
doesn't make any flipping sense but hey, it works.
