Here is the exact RAM and vendor that was purchased.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Running in a Brand new Clevo P151SM1 laptop with brand new Core i7 4700MQ cpu and Intel HM87 Mobo. Can anyone help make any sense to me as to why I am not getting 1600MHz speed reported in Speccy, or Intel XTU, or any other system spec reporting applications? On a much smaller note, it also seems that the CAS latency would be at 10 if properly operating at 1600MHz when the claimed stock values are 1600MHz at CAS 9.

Thanks in advance.

And here are some readouts from Speccy:

Go into your BIOS and enable XMP profile. Save and exit. 1333 is the default speed so every ram set will show up as that until you enable xmp, or overclock.
