The BIOS will show it as 1333. Windows will show it as 1333. CPU-Z will still show 667. It is just semantics.

Yes, sort of.
CPU-Z is just reading and reporting the values in the JEDEC table. And those pertain to the chip standards, not the advertised ratings or the performance of the entire module.
