I had noticed the same thing with my Kingston HyperX ram... I bought it as PC3-12800 1600MHz 9-9-9-24... But their SPD shows different.
Yes; they'll run at 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 and even at 8-8-8-24 with a slight voltage increase, but why label them and sell them for what they are not?

Mine shows the exact same thing, runs fine at 800Mhz 9-9-9-9-27-36- 1T. Didnt have to play with V or anything, just set it to 800MHZ, manually adjusted timing and it was ALL good.

Uh, that's pretty much true for all performance memory.
JEDEC spec timings are required on the SPD for auto set - it is normal to have to manually set speeds/timings. Some modules may have an extra XMP or EPP profile built into the SPD for auto performance setting. That the module is apparently rated for DDR3-1600 as an OC capability, doesn't necessarily hurt the RAM's ability to OC past 1600.
