Different RAM clocks in HWiNFO and CPU-Z after overclocking

I overclocked an old system with an Intel Core2Duo E8500. The FSB was changed from 333 MHz to 400 MHz. CPU-Z is still reporting 400 MHz for my RAM clocks. HWiNFO is showing 400 MHz x 1.5 = 600 MHz. Before change the FSB HWiNFO was showing the clocks as 333 MHz x 1.2 = 400 MHz. Which one is correct? Is the RAM really overclocked now?

Well, the problem here is that the MCH still thinks the FSB is running at 333 MHz and thus seems to use improper settings for DDR/Memory.
This is also confusing HWiNFO and I'm really not sure at which clock the memory is running, it might indeed be 400 x 1.5 = 600 MHz.

Do you have any idea what I could do to change that? The MCH is set to 400 MHz in the BIOS.

I just downloaded AIDA64 Extreme and it shows DRAM:FSB 1:1 with 400 MHz just like CPU-Z.
