667 x 2 = 1333

You go into bios and choose xmp profile.

cpuz will then show 800 x 2 = 1600.

unluckily i could nt see a option called xmp profile in BIOS. but there is an option like memory frequency and it has set to auto. but there are values like DDR3-800Mhz, DDR-1067Mhz etc to select other than Auto. and there DDR3-1600Mhz value too. so is it ok to select that value ? will it wrk that way ?
