Minor problem 2: Yes you need to change the BIOS DRAM speed. Also make sure you have the DRAM voltage set to what it should be.

Major problem 1: Your power supply is terrible, sorry, there's no dodging around it. You need to replace it as soon as possible. Get a Tier 1 or 2 PSU. 500W is more than enough.

By the way, RAM speed really is negligible but of course you want it to operate at the frequency that you paid for.

I believe it's a USB header, it's kind of a thin black block with maybe 8 or 10 pin holes in it with one or two blocked out.

I'll update the power supply, I was worried that was it but was hoping it was something else.

Thanks for your help.

EDIT: Just ordered the OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W Modular which was on sale for 59.99 with an additional $25 MIR. If only I'd seen that article earlier, I wouldn't have settled on a Tier 5 crappy one.
