Help with optimizing my system, 8150/990FX/32gb ddr3/2x2gb gtx550 TI

Level 7

After reading this forum, i feel like a noob, ive been playing around with systems for over 10 years but feel like an amateur after reading some comment by people on this site so im wondering if anyone here could give me advice on making my system preform better, at the moment it looks like my ddr3 is running on 800mhz, no idea why. Here are my specs ;

Asus Sabertooth 990FX
AMD FX-8150
Corsair H100
4 x 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 ( CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10 )
2x 2GB GDDR5 GeForce GTX 550 Ti
120gb OCZ Agility 3
And a 850w cooler master power supply.

im not complaining about this rig at al but i feel like it should be running on 1600mhz in stead of 800.

If anyone got some advice on how to optimize this computer, i'd really appreciate it. I dont mind selling parts and getting other components if i have to, i'd just like to know how to get it even a bit more faster.

kinds regards from the netherlands!

I assume you used CPUz to look at your ram frequency?

If so you will need to double that value to get the actual speed your ram is running at. 800 x 2 = 1600 so you are running at correct speed.

DDR = Double Data Rate
