Default Ram question

I just built my new computer but I have a quick question about the ram. When I first installed the ram and went to bios, it was running at 167mhz(or something close to that). So I figured that I put the ram in the wrong dim slots. I changed the slots to dim 1 and dim 2. In bios the ram now reads as 201mhz. I also ran cpuz and it also reads as 201mhz. Is it normal for my ram to be running at 201mhz and not 200mhz? If not, will this damage my system at all?

I am using a msi k8n neo4 plat motherboard and gskill extreme ram (2x1gb).

Im sure 1Mhz wont do any damage to it. Usually RAM runs just under its amount but wouldn't worry too much about it.

Your cpu is probally slightly overclocked, most motherboards do this only by a few mhz.

It will be fine.
