Motherboard not reading my RAM Frequency correctly

I just checked on my PC using CPU-Z and i noticed something wrong.

CPU-Z says my ram frequency is only at 665.0 MHz when i am using 2x2gb G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 Mhz :(

By the way here are my PC specs:
Intel core i3-2100
Palit GTX 650 Ti
2x2gb G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600

Please help me :??:

  1. Because it is dual data rate 665=1333 which is the default for your CPU and board.

    ^ This is correct.

    And to add to it since you have an i3 and an H61 board you can't overclock the RAM at all to make it run at it's rated speed of DDR3 1600. Neither the i3 processor nor the H61 chipset will support anyting faster than DDR3 1333.
  3. Oh.. I see.. Thanks for the help guys :D
