          333 is the specification, it's comon that motherboards aren't quite what they should be.  The 1333 is based off the 333 so if you have 331x4 you get 1325.

           

          Your chip is actually running at 2.98Ghz which is very close to 3.0Ghz, so you won't see any performance effects from the slightly lower speeds.
