I just bought 2 sticks of 4 GB ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... And i put them in and the work fine but i open up Speccy to see how fast they are running and it says 8.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 800MHz (11-11-11-28). I believe they are supposed to run at 1600MHz and 9-9-9-24 How would i set the timing to that or is it just speccy being wrong.

Your RAM is running at 1600 11-11-11-28, Why? It's dual channel, so, 800x2 = 1600MHz, the only thing that you need change are the CL settings.

This is what it is telling me in Cpu-z
Channels# Single
NB Frequency 2000.1 MHz
DRAM Frequency 800.0
FSB. DRAM 1.4
CAS# Latency (CL) 11.0 Clock
RAS# to CAS# Delay(tRCD) 11 clocks
RAS# Precharge (tRP) 11 clocks
Cycle Time (tRAS) 28 clocks
Bank cycle Time (tRC) 39 clocks
Command Rate (CR) 2T

What do i need to change in bios to get this to the right settings thanks for the help by the way.

For dual channel in that mobo you need install the RAM in slot 1 and 2 or 3 and 4, not in the way than you have installed

Yeah, the speed should be 1600 9-9-9-24 but if those settings won't work you need set it manually in the BIOS
