Default Memory Mhz settings using eVGA 680I motherboard.

If my motherboard Bios says I am running my ram at 801Mhz, am I really running at 1602Mhz? or 400.5Mhz and my Motherboard is already telling me the true DDR speed of 801?

I run a Q6600 at 9X1333 for 3.0Ghtz

Memory unlocked at 801Mhz

For 1:1 do I need to set it to read 1333 on the Motherboard or just 666?

I'm not sure my Corsair XMS2 can even get up to 1602Mhz with out blowing up.

If it is running fine how it is then I would not worry about it ,but to get 1:1 ratio you would need to set your memory at around 666mhz.
