After going through some of the reading material in KaptCrunch's post, I gathered enough courage to venture into my bios again. This time, I selected the XMP and 1600MHZ. Both my motherboard and the Memory Modules support XMP. My system is running fine. I also ran the cpu-z suggested in sswilson's post and it confirmed (Memory and SPD) the DRAM Frequency as 800MHZ, XMP-1600 Timing - 9-9-9-24.
I left everything at the default settings after selecting the XMP. The Voltage is still 1.5 and my temperatures are pretty good (CPUis running 30 C @idle).
