DDR3 1600 running at 1333 on P8Z77-V

My 8GB Corsair DDR3 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8) is running at 1333 by default on my newly installed P8Z77-V. Is it normal on this board to have to bump it up to 1600? Sorry this is my first Asus board.

  1. The motherboard goes off of the XMP profile of the RAM, and will automatically set itself to whatever profile is in the RAM module.
  2. Go to the Ai Tweaker menu in the BIOS and go to Ai Overclock Tuner, then select X.M.P. there.
