    my mobo is a "foxconn H67M v2.0"

    is another one
  4. 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.

    omg, weird, the mobo box says: ddr3 2200(OC) 1600/1333/1066
  6. 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.

    ^+1

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

    H67M - http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_spec.aspx?ID=en-us0000534
    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).
  9. 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.
