These are the specifications for the motherboard in your p6110f. I have the same motherboard in one of my PCs (m9200t). 800 mhz is about the best I can see that the memory is going to run at. The bios may be limiting the clock speed for the memory.

so i guess the processor doesn't determine the memory speed.so i guess it a new mother board

Hello jeffb1062, Sorry to hear the memory is not running as expected.
On some, mostly retail motherboards, the processor can determine the memory speed, but on most, if not all OEM boards, the chipset controls the memory speed via the BIOS. This is the way HP systems are configured.
My HP has 1333 mhz memory and actually is running: @ 609 MHz 8-8-8-22 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) / 30-68-4-10-5-5 (RC-RFC-RRD-WR-WTR-RTP)
Memory Speed DDR3-1333 (667 MHz)
The memory is actually doubled, which should result in the 1333 mhz, but as you can see, it is actually running at 1218 mhz when doubled.
You can purchase a retail motherboard that will accept your processor and GSkill memory and fit into the HP case, but you would also need to purchase another copy of the operating system, since the existing HP motherboard is tatooed to only accept a HP version of the operating system.
Hope this helps.
