Memory only running at 666 MHz?

I recently bought this memory:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145350&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Memory+(Desktop+Memory)-_-Corsair-_-20145350

Which is supposed to run at 1600 MHz correct? Or no? I'm confused here, how do I set it up to run at the correct speed?

I know there is a multiplier in the BIOS I can use to change the speed of the system, but I don't want to change the wrong thing.

Here is an Everest screenshot of my rig a few moments ago:



Any help much appreciated, thanks!!

  1. enable XMP
  2. Thanks! I enabled XMP in the BIOS. The DRAM:FSB ratio changed from 4:1 to 6:1, but the RAM is still listed at the same speed at the bottom. What am I missing here?

  3. OH thats first generation I7,thats all it can support with over clocking
  4. So what you're saying is that I can't get my RAM to run any faster?

    ypu not possible without overclocking you already over clocked it a bit thats why its using them at 1333...max memory clock a stock i7 950 support is 1066,to use higher clocks you need to over clock it
