But like you are saying its dual channel so it should be fine?
Dual channel ram will show clock speed 800.mhz each which will total 1600 mhz with the sticks each running at the suggested speed
if you up the ram frequency to the 1600mhz that will help you OC better and give you more room to play with
If you are new to this though ,I would read alot more about the multiplyer fsb ram timmings they all co exist to help the OC experience better
there are members here with much more experience with Intel over clocking
Just remember not all settings will be the same as others different systems different behaviors and block walls of overclocking
