I have my RAM set to 1600mhz in bios but CPU-z and HWINFO say that it is running at 800mhz. So what frequency is it running at? and if it is running at the wrong frequency should i just overclock it to 1600mhz?
Specs: Intel i5 3570k Asus Sabertooth P67 Asus GTX 570 Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4GB x 4) 1600mhz quad channel Novatech Black Edition 750w Western Digital WD20EARX Zalman CNPS9900 max

Its running at 1600MHz. You just double the frequency since they are DDR(3) or Double Data Rate. I can also see that your stock speed is 1333Mhz because your modules are 667MHz then multiply by 2.
Wow that seems incredibly obvious now, as for the memory's stock speed being 1333mhz i have absolutely no idea why its 1333mhz because the serial number is for a 1600mhz kit and when i bought it from ebay it was listed as a 1600mhz kit too...
