Memory Speed

A: Under the memory section of CPU-Z you will find a text box labeled as 'Frequency'. This is the core speed of the module. Keep in mind for DDR the effective speed is double the core speed.

In CPU-Z my memory, Corsair 2X2GB 1600mhz memory shows only 814mhz. Is the above definition of speed the reason for this? I have it clocked at 1600 in my bios. Thanks
