    hard to tell.

    It could just be telling you what you can install, rather then what you have installed.

    If you download cpu-z utility that will be able to tell you.
  2. To get the speed of your memory, you divide the PC3 number by 8.
    So 12800 is 1600, and 10600 is 1333. Actually 10660 and 10666 are 1333 as well, since companies round differently.
    Look at the individual DIMMs themselves, they should have a sticker that tells the speed.
  3. CPU-Z worked perfectly cause I don't want to touch the ram unless I change it and I am extraordinarily lazy. The result of CPU-Z shows that my ram is all PC3-10700 (667 MHz) each
