Memory Specs right or wrong?

Hello all.

I recently bought a new PC and I ordered (and finally purchased according to the invoice) this type of memory:

AFAIK reading the spd should report the max specs of the memory.In my case though both CPU-Z and Everest show different things from what I should expect (PC12800, 1600MHz, 8-8-8-24 timings):

So what exactly is going on here? Am I missing something or maybe I was deceived?

FYI my system specs are:
Intel i5-750, 4GB DDR3, Asus 4850 512MB Vga, 2x750GB on RAID0, and Win7 x64.

Any help is appreciated.

  1. There's nothing wrong. 1600MHz modules are made of 1333MHz chips that are overclockable to 1600MHz. As long as they work at the JEDEC #3 voltage and timings, then you received what you ordered. Even if they only worked at 8-8-8-24 timings, you still got what you ordered.
