1600 mhz ram running at 1333 mhz.

I have 1x8gb kingston hyperx fury 1600 mhz cl10. I changed my motherboard to the msi h97i ac mobo and my ram runs at 1333 mhz on it. I tried going to the bios and putting the frequency to 1600, but the highest it lists is 1400mhz. I tried looking for xmp but i couldn't find it. Thanks.

There should be way higher frequencies for the ram in the Asus uefi and atleast 1 xmp profile. You could have got a board with and older bios possibly. Have you updated it to the newest available one from their website?

I have an msi H97i Ac with the latest bios. I realized there is a setting "Reference clock". When the reference clock is 266 mhz, the dram frecuency is 1333mhz and when the reference clock is 200 mhz, the dram frequency is 1400 mhz. Those both add up to 1600 mhz, does that mean that my ram is running at 1600mhz?

There is no difference between 1333 and 1600, in fact 1333 may perform better than 1600 in most cases.

Sorry was thinking you were talking about the Asus H97i-plus, misread. It's irrelevant though. You are bclk overclocking? If not then your RC should not be at 266 or 200. It should be at 100 x stock frequency multiplier if you're not overclocking it at all. The bclk directly affects ram speed. For example, you have a 3.5Ghz cpu then 100bclk x 35 multiplier would be "default" then you should have 1600Mhz in your ram frequency option. As well as an xmp profile.

Check the highest memory clock your CPU supports. My RAM is HyperX Fury 1866MHz, but it runs at max. 1600 cuz' of my CPU (core i5 3330).

Care to elaborate why this is? I've never heard this before?

As expected from the video 2133 is the highest performing in every graph and 1333 is the lowest. Yes ram on this intel architecture yields small increases in performance per frequency but isn't the point of this forum to help people achieve the best performance possible? Anyway back on topic, as i posted earlier.
