642.4 *(X) 2.5, the clock multiplier, = 1606.

It's running at the rated speed.

I don't think so.

CPU-Z normally reports half the working frequency for DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 RAM. Should be 800 MHz, as in the XMP profile listed on the right.

According to CPUz you are running at 1284mhz, something is not right in the bios, if that is what XMP is giving you then I suggest setting the speed,timings and voltage manually.


Edit, its been a long time since I had to set a FSB/Dram ratio, but you may need to alter that before you can select 1600mhz in the bios.

how would i go about setting the FSB/DRAM ratio

also could it be my CPU....Intel i3 540 3.07Ghz not sure if that makes a difference.

Maybe i3 540 definitely supports dual channel although according to Intel, i3 540 can only support up to DDR3 1333 MHz. Try setting the RAM to 1333 MHz with 8-8-8-24 timings and check your WinSAT Memory scores.
