Hello.

My Corsair Memory: CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

is giving me a terrible passmark score.

Memory Mark
#1 - 2GB Transcend Information PC2-6400----- 777
#2 - 4GB Kingston PC2-6400----------------- 909-
#3 - 8GB Samsung PC3-12800--- -----------1882
#4 - 8GB Nanya Technology PC3-12800---- 2215
#5 - 8GB Corsair PC3-10600 --------------1950
#6 - 16GB G Skill Intl PC3-12800 ---2299
This Computer ----------------------------1336

I'm running it at DDR3 1600 speeds, why is the score so low?

My build:
AMD FX-8320 @ 4.0 Ghz
Asus M5a97 R2.0
WD Velociraptor 500Gb
XFX 7850 DD
Seasonic M12II 620w

can you double check if it is really running 1600, try cpu-z or something.

CPU-z says DRAM freq. is 800mhz, i beleive that means DDR1600

because DDR is Double Data Rate

Yes, it's 1600. I think there's nothing wrong with the RAMs.
