Hello, sorry if this looks like "spam",

I got in the following solved thread

the said u can get make ur mem run at 1600 with a "XMP" option in the bios, but I cant find that option in my bios menu :( 

bios says my ram is currently running at 1066

I have a 1600 corsair vengeance ram, BTW


Sorry IMMA N00b!!

afaik, h67 pch does not allow ram overclocking. it only alllows intel's igpu overclocking. sandy bridge supports up to ddr3 1333 ram by default. the 1600 ram should run at 1333 speed.

download speccy
http://www.piriform.com/speccy
portable (no installer) version
http://www.piriform.com/speccy/builds
or
cpu z
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
and run it. any of them can tell you which speed your ram is running at.

ok, I got this screenshot

my mem are these ones: http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-8gb-dual-channel-ddr3-...

and my Board says that supports 1600 mhz
but I cant find any option in the bios :S

^+1

Never seen any H67/H61 allowing DRAM Frequency >DDR3-1333.

H67M - http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/deta...
Dual channel DDR3 1333/1066 x 4 DIMMs, Max. 32GB

Also, no LGA 1155 other than today's P67/Z68 allows any OC'ing (RAM nor CPU).

excerpt from corsair's site:
Quote:
What is XMP?

XMP is a feature of most current motherboards using an Intel chipset (X58, P55, etc.) which allows for simple overclocking of your memory. Overclocked memory modules often must be manually configured in your BIOS in order to achieve the overclocked settings. A memory module which supports XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile) allows you to simply enable XMP mode in the BIOS which would then automatically configure your memory settings for the correct voltage, speed and latency values.

Please contact your motherboard manufacturer to see if your motherboard supports XMP.

means: both motherboard bios and the ram should support x.m.p. otherwise the ram would run on the spd specs. in this case, ddr3 1333.
your speccy screenshot looks fine, no problem there.
your motherboard supports up to ddr3 1333. check jaquith's post.
