Hey guys i need some help here.
I've got an athlon ii x3 455 95w processor on a 95W motherboard.
My memory is a Kingston Hyper blu X 1600 4GB DDR3.

I was fiddling around in the bios and realized that my ram was Downclocked to 1066MHZ!

Then i was also able to change it. 800MHZ ==> 1600.

Did i just increase my wattage?

NOTE: Athlon ii x3 455 specs says that it only supports 1333mhz Ram.

You've increased the CPU's power draw slightly, but not much. TDP will be pretty much the same.
