Memory only running at 666 MHz?

I recently bought this memory:

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!!

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?

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
