No, your RAM is at the correct settings (667Mhz DDR = 1333Mhz), sadly. OCZ Gold is the worst RAM in the world, and for plenty of reasons
1. Extremely high voltage (1.65V) for generic 1333 CL9 settings that should always only require 1.5V!
2. Extremely bad overclockability
3. Extremely bad heatspreaders (not very effective, trust me I have some of OCZ Gold's DDR2 it runs fairly warm/hot)
4. Extremely high DOA rate (highest of all OCZ RAM)
5. Extremely high rip-off price! (These honestly should be worth $0, but even then I see stores selling them for $50-60... and the kits still being bought!!!)

You should return and exchange that memory right away if you still can (i.e. within 15 day return guarantee). Seriously, a build with watercooling and an unlocked x2 does NOT deserve crap RAM like that.

you are tripping my friend, the ram runs copletly cold, and its dirt cheap, i paid $45 for 4gb 1333mhz, i love this ram, never gave me problems, ive used it in 6 budget builds now,

this is just an HTPC man, im not really doing anything on it besides folding and XBMC, oh and starcraft 2 when my frieds come over and we want to play together


another question, so when i unlcok the cores there is no way to monirtor the temp??

The temp sensors often go awry when core is unlocked. I have had mine randomly work once or twice, but often I'll get 0 or -273. Nice unlock!

6 in a row!?

$45 is still a huge ripoff for generic RAM (never pay more than $35 for 2x2 generic 1066 or 1333 DDR3), but this is just unacceptable. There is absolutely no excuse for requiring 1.65V for generic speeds/timings, and this kit doesn't overclock for crap. It is a memory kit that simply should not exist. Lower timings/higher speed can really help with Folding@Home times and lower timings can really help with gaming. This is just not optimal either.

I never ever suggest generic memory kits in the first place, never even 1.5V ones, because there is always a better 1600Mhz kit for the price. To prove my "better kits for less" argument, here are some better 2x2GB DDR3 kits:
Kingston HyperX Blu 1600 CL9 - $50, $35 AR (can do 1600 CL8)
OCZ Special Ops 1600 CL8 - $40, $30 AR ($5 cheaper in the first place BEFORE rebate, can do 1600 CL6-8-6 too if one doesn't mind OCZ quality)
GeIL Value 1600 CL9 - $44
OCZ Platinum 1600 CL9 1.35V - $45, $35 AR
OCZ Reaper HPC 1600 CL8 - $45, $35 AR
Team 1600 CL9 - $45
OCZ Fatal1ty 1600 CL7-8-8-26 - $50, $40 AR (can do 1600 CL6-7-6)

7 choices, and I could list more. Every single one of these choices, same price or cheaper, all so much better than OCZ Gold. My recommendation to you as the main memory guru on AMD forums: never buy OCZ gold, ever again.
