What and/or where is it showing 1333 - may be something looking at the SPD default boot freq....get CPU-Z and look int he Memory Tab, it will show the true freq which should be 1066-1067 (this is DDR (Double data rate) so you take true freq 1066 x 2 (double) to get 2133 (effective)

Tried using CPU-z but the memory tab only states the size and not the frequency, maybe the version I had was old but all the frequency stuff was greyed out. I tried Everest instead and that states the frequency as 2133mhz........if I could upload a pic of my bios screen then u would be able to see what I mean........under the DRAM info on my bios screen it states the Dimm's of which 2 of them state Corsair 8192mb 1334mhz.....it's just a little frustrating why it would show up as this but at the top of the screen to the right of the bios clock it states Total Memory 16384mb (DDR3 2133mhz)
