DDR 1600mhz runs at 1333

I've 2x 4GB Dual KHX1600-C9 [1.65v] on a MSI p67a-gd65. with a i5 2500k However, it seems to run only at 1333 Mhz.
Since I've only basic knowledge of all that clocking stuff, I wanted to make sure:
Can I simply raise the 667Mhz to 800 Mhz via BIOS? I'm unsure about the other paratmeters:


Should I leave them unchanged? Or to which values should I put them?

  1. Yes jusr change the 667 to 800 job done
  2. very simple change your 667 to 800 just set Ratio RAM from 1333 to 1600 in bios
    you will get over @800. remember don't forget raise too Vdim max 1.65 don't over!
  3. If the BIOS set your RAM parameters to 1333, that's what you have. The parameters are stored in the little SPD chip on each stick. What you more than likely have is DDR3-1333 RAM that has been tested and branded at the higher speed, usually at a higher voltage and more relaxed timings.

    You will need to manually adjust all the settings and it should run at the higher speed.
