Its DDr ram so double that frequency to roughyl 1066 which is a default Speed for a PC on certain CPu/Motherboards. What CPu/ Motherboard do you have??

Enable XMP in the bios to run a 800MHz each channel so it will become a 1600MHz at dual channel.

CPU-z only registers one side of the dual data rate (thus the term ddr) doubling that number gives actual dual data rate

DDR does the same as DDr3 Its dobule density Memory. you double the frequency that CPu-z and other programs show. so 800 = 1600Mhz RAM 530 = 1066 Mhz RAm 1200 = 2400mhz and so on. i know what im talking about :p  I asked what CPu and motherboard you have as some CPu's dont support certain Memory speeds. same goes for mainboards

Channels are irrelevant. It will always be DOUBLE because ddr stands for DOUBLE data rate. The labeled ram speed is simply the max speed it was tested at. But if the speed is higher than your cpu/mobo stock speed, it will not overclock itself so it defaults to stock speed.
