[Question] RAM Setup/OC

Verse
Level 7
[SOLVED]

Link to setup: http://valid.canardpc.com/2750885
RAM: CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 ( Vengeance® — 16GB Dual/Quad Channel DDR3 Memory Kit

Question: The RAM I have states 1600MHz (SPD:1333MHz) @ 1.5v.

I have my BIOS set to 1600 and its voltage is set at "AUTO" and shows 1.5, I am not experienced so I did not want to venture further and tweak settings that I did not understand so I figured I'd ask those with brains. (Rog Community :cool:)

Should I adjust anything, or just leave it how it is since everything works?

EDIT: Sorry I seem to have left out the reason I am questioning. - CPU-Z Shows it at 802.7MHz despite bios being set at 1600MHz, is this normal?
CPU: AMD FX-8150 - MOBO: ASUS Formula V - RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 16GB - PSU: Antec HCG-900 - GPU: Nvidia GTX 275 <- Outdated 😞 - Case: Antec 1200

it runs at the speed it should, and voltage needed.
all speed over 1333 is OC.

Thanks for the reply, I seemed to leave out what lead me to making the post. In the Pictures it shows that I have 802.7MHz DRAM Frequency despite bios being set to 1600MHz, Is that normal?

It is absolutely normal! You need to multiply by two whatever you see in CPU-Z... - DDR is meaning double data rate... and for some reason CPU-Z shows only one data rate...

yes, it shows the 1/2 amount whit me too.
times it whit 2 and you have the amount you got.
