memory clock displays as half of what it is, don't worry, you're getting your full potential.

No, not necessarily. When the timings are listed on the spec pages, they are listed at their effective speeds. When looking at you card specs through a program such as Everest, it will display the actual reported speeds. Being that the memory is DDR, you would double the displayed speed to get you actual effective memory speeds.
