Default Wait... what?

I am not really a RAM guy, and I just started fiddling around with it. I OCed it a little bit, but the readings in CPU-z have me confused. Can somebody explain?

I don't see anything wrong with it??

By the looks of it looks like you got DDRII 800.

Ok. In the CPU-Z window on the left are the actual timings that the memory is running at.

The window on the right are the specifications of the memory as provided by the SPD (serial presence detect). It is a small chip on the memory module thatthat tells the BIOS the module's size, data width, timings, and voltage.

DDR stands for Dual Data Rate. that means whatever the clock is of that ram it is doubled so since i have DDR2 800 my actual clock is 400. it works just like the intels quad pumped FSB, the actual clock is like 266 or something like that but the rated FSB is 1066

EDIT:
also go into your bios and see why your ram isnt running in dual channel, you might have them in the wrong slots too
