Is my RAM downclocking its self? (Picture)

My motherboard is ASRock Z75 Pro3 and the RAM is linked here http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008W6AK0O/ref=oh_details_o03_s01_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1#productDetails

My motherboard has a feature which allows me to set the RAM frequency in the BIOS but im a little edgy as to doing this, will it be ok if i set it to 1600Mhz?

Thanks guys!

    Turn on XMP profile in your BIOS and it should fix itself.
  2. yes you can set it for 1600 and not have much issues as long as you set the timings to the specified amount.

    No the XMP will set that for you. Most times IF the ram is auto set to a low frequency it will also lower the timings. This means if you manually set the ram speed you need to make sure the timings are set correctly.
