So I have built my computer with this ram inside 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231568

 

And as it says there it is 1600 MHz speeds but yet when I do a speccy scan over my hardware, it shows that my ram runs at 674 MHz. Why is that and how do I boost it to its proper speeds?

You have sixteen GB of RAM running in single channel, we need to see what the different modules are.  Please follow the directions below to provide us with the whole speccy report.
 
Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When the  FileHippo website opens, click on Download latest version in the upper left pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

Thank you, that is what I was looking for.

 

This is weird.  It shows you have 16GB of RAM installed, but only list one of the two modules.  We can see what the module in slot one is, but the other module is unknown.  

 

Are these two modules the same?

 

How do you have the modules populated?

the sabertooth owners manual should shed more info, my sabertooth is an x58 and i have three different RAM types in its 6 slots and it reads them fine., there is a memok! switch on the board i think close to the slots. my mobo calls for ddr3 10700, but then i stuck 12800 sticks in it twice and it read fine in a backward direction.

If the modules are populated properly, and the modules are seated properly the ram should be in dual channel.

 

Open the case and make sure the modules are properly seated.

 

I would like you to run Memtest86 to see if there is a problem with either of the RAM modules.  But first remove one module and try running the computer with it in each slot.  Do the same with the other module.

 

 
1) Please download the Memtest86 Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO file.
 
2) Unzip the downloaded memtest86 file.  You will need a program like 7-Zip to unzip this file.
 
3) Inside, you will find the memtest86 file.
 
4) Please download and install ImageBurn.
 
5) Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
 
6) Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.

7) Click on the Browse for a file... icon:
 
ImgBurn2_zpsaea72ba9.png
 
8) Locate the memtest86 file, and click on the Open button.
 
9) Click on the blue arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD.
 
imageburn11_zpse44f577b.png
 
10) Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.  
 
Please note:  It may be neccessary to change the boot order in the BIOS so the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order and the hdd second.
 
Each pass consists of 8 tests, it is suggested that you run at least 7 passes, this will take several hours, you may find it simpler to let it run overnight.  The longer you run the passes the more comprehensive the results will be.
 
If you are running multiple modules and have a failure, remove all but one module and test it separately, continue this with each module till you find the one that failed.  
 
When you discern that a module is good, use it to test each slot to be sure there isn't a problem with one of them.
 
When the test is complete a display similar to the one below will appear.  Note the locations of the Pass and Errors, any Error is indicative of a failed module.

If you look at the specifications tab on newegg's product information page, you'll see this information: "To reach rated memory speed, enabling Intel XMP profile or manual BIOS tuning is required".
