    Honestly I wouldn't sweat it, unless the mobo bios indicates in red that voltages is too high and might damage it.
    Keep using it as is and keep your cpu clock and turbo clock in a good safe spot and keep going.
    This in my new intel chip and mobo I rebuilt 2 or 3 weeks ago, for the life of me I can't get the memory to go up 1600mhz.

    Don't know if its gigabyte problem or the ram I had for 6 years won't use 1600mhz as stated. :P
