Hello people i have an issue for a while now i've been trying to change the frequency of my ram from 1333 to 1600 but it just doesn't allow me to change it. any help would be nice.

That pic shows the memory is runng at 798MHZ. That is correct for 1600MHZ memory. It is Double Data Rate memory, so you effectively double the speed: 1596.4MHZ

The 4th pic shows the memory at 1600mhz also. What Ivy Bridge processor are you using?

Nevermind. I found it in the pics you posted. It looks like you are running this memory: http://www.corsair.com/en/cmx8gx3m2a1600c9

The Ivy Bridge memory controller defaults to 1333MHZ memory speed. BUt by increasing the memory multiplier as you did, you are now running at 1600MHZ. You are fine.
