I asked a question about whether my G.SKILL F3-12800-CL8T-6GBRM memory works with my mobo, the Asus P6X58D. I've been looking through the manual and can't quite grasp something. For the memory timings(bios) section under the DDR-1600 category, it says that the timing should be for any particular memory 8-8-8-21 and then in brackets (1333-8-8-8-21). Does this mean its not DDR 1600?

No. Some ddr3 defaults to a lower speed due to the motherboard or having all slots filled. And some only works at 1600 by manually bumping the ram voltage up; max recommended is 1.65 for many boards.
