I now i have an iMac13,2
which came with 8 gb 1600 MHz of ram, being kind of a freak on pc i wanted to upgrade the ram so i bought 16 gb of ram from amazon, which are also 1600 MHz. When i install them and check on about this mac it shows the correct amount of memory but it says 1333 MHz. I removed the new ones (left only the original 8GB) and it goes back to 1600, exchange them for the new ones (16 GBs 1600) and it shows 1600, but when i combine them it drops to 1333. I know that performance should not be different but this is bugging me.. does nayone knows what is going on??

It's simple really. Buy the right RAM for that machine instead of RAM that only meets one of several specs the iMac requries. Return the RAM you have, and buy from a company that actually knows Mac products, like Crucial or OWC in the US or CanadaRAM in Canada.
