I just finished building my first computer and everything is running
however the ram I have installed 6g triple channel DDR3 should be running at 1600 but when I check eleet its says 800.

How can I fix this?

I'm not familiar with eleet.

It may well be reporting the correct frequency. DDR means Double Data Rate.

800x2 =1600

1600mhz RAM does indeeed run at 800mhz. If you were using CPU-Z it would say 800mhz, and that would mean your 1600mhz RAM was running correctly.

aaahhh that could be it because whenever I switch the freq. in the bios it does cut it in half in eleet, wow lol. well thanks if that was the problem!

Yep. IIRC, eleet is based on CPU-Z, and CPU-Z shows my DDR3-1600 as 800 as well (800 is the memory I/O clock, whereas 1600 is the number of transfers per second).
