¿What do?

My mobo is an ASUS P8H61-I which is supposed to do 1333 mhz.

More about : 1600 ram 800 mhz

DDR stands for Double Data Rate. 800Mhz is the operating frequency. For marketing purposes it is referred to as 1600.

DDR3-1333 would actually run at 667Mhz.

Now what that screenshot appears to be is the XMP profile the memory has. If you enable the XMP profile in the bios the ram should be capable of running at 1600 speeds.

800MHz is the real clock speed of DDR3-1600MHz memory and its effective clock speed is 1600MHz. Sometimes due to this softwares like CPU-Z might show the real clock speed. Check in BIOS if it also reflects the same. If the BIOS shows that it is running @800MHz then you can set the speed manually.

So if i "speed up" the memory in the BIOS i woulnd't have to worry about it getting extra hot? by the way, where do i see the temperatures in EVEREST? that's why i installed it in the first place. (thanks for the replies)

What you are seeing in your screenshot, is pertinent info pulled from the SPD of the DRAM, it's basically a tech review of the sticks. As far as your mobo if you have Rev 1 it is suppose to be limited to 1333, Rev 2 can handle up to 2200 DRAM

Yup, i just putted ddr3-1600 in the bios and at reboot a message displayed "overclock failed! blah blah blah.."
Ok so i suppose everything is fine.

Guess you have Rev 1 and limited to 1333, download CPU-Z a free program and run it then click on the memory tab under frequency it will prob show 667 or so indicating you are running 1333. The overclock failed message is telling you it didn't take the OC you tried to 1600. For temp checking, suggest downloading an app called CoreTemp - also free, it's one of the better little apps I've seen and uses low resources/overhead
