Why is the speed of my Ram sticks different in command prompt even though they are both are 1600 mhz.

Hi, I recently upgraded the ram on my computer. I have a GA-970A-D3P motherboard that has dual channeling. I had 2x4Gb sticks and I bought 2x8Gb sticks and the 2 sets of sticks were the exact same in every way except size. And on the ram sticks they both say 1600 MHz. but when i use the command prompt to pull up the speed they are different. the 8gb say 800 and the 4 say something like 667. whey is it saying this.

    It will show as 50% of the MHZ clock speed (the exact reason escapes me at the moment), but that is how it should be displayed. So 1600mhz ram will show as 800.
