What?

Look at your CPU-Z memory tab. DDR stands for double data rate, so 800mhz times 2 = 1600mhz. You are running 1600mhz with 9-9-9-24 timings.

Exactly right. DDR3 1600 ram runs at 800MHz. If you look a the DDR3 marketing, it does not say DDR3 1600MHz, only DDR3 1600, which is the rating.

That is just the stock SPD setting. Some brands have conservative default settings because some motherboards have problems posting with overaggressive ram speeds and timings.

Just manually adjust your ram settings in the bios.
