Does it work

Your DDR ram transfers data on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal. The I/O bus clock is actually half of that hence why it shows the clock as 1600. Just multiply if it by 2, and if it's close, you're good to go.

Mine will read as 1585-1890, so you're doing better than me there, but if its close enough to total/2 (usually give or take less 5%) it's completely fine

thanks man, no one else could explain it. didnt know it multiplies by 2 on there. should say that, thought they were both running at 1600 together from the bottom there where it says 16 gb

The top "Memory Modules" Section is showing the information/specs for only one of your dimm slots, which is why it says 8gb, the bottom one is showing the current total for it all combined (both your dimms) which is why it is 16gb, and not quite exactly 1600 (x2 3200)
