Double data rate
This is normal. The bios states the effective data rate. Ram is advertised at the effective data rate. CPU-z is reading the actual rate. The effective rate is twice the speed because it transfers data at both the rising and falling edge.
In short: That's normal and there is nothing wrong. :D

yeah CPUID tells you what the mhz the ram is running at the time. The computer idles certin parts to make them last longer but if your computer is running a heavy load the computer parts will be at the right speed

I have nothing more to say. We are talking about ram.

OP, your ram speed will never change. What you have now is what 1333MHz ram should read.
