Default Confused About website specs and propper RAM setup - VENGEANCE 1600 cl10

i have bought 2 separate sticks of corsair ram to put in my setup, but i cannot understand very well the instructions in the website about the correct timings and latency with AMD CPUs.
i am trying to troubleshoot some problems with my setup, and, to eliminate any problems of it being RAM related, i need to MANUALLY set them in bios.

My system:

2x8 Gb RAM Corsair Vengeance 1600 cl10 CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10
GX650 Cooler master CM edition PSU
Gigabyte 970a UD3P rev. 2 motherboard
FX8370E AMD 8 core.
Corsair H45 water cooler
1Tb Western Digital Blue 7200 HDD
Windows 10 pro OS

My question is:
I have bought them separately, but they have the same specs and Id code, so I should use them in Dual Channel, right?

The links that are making me confused are:

I should set them 1600 or 1333?

Here, the website shows a "tested latency" and "SPD latency" as well as "tested" and "SPD Speed". Which one should I use??

You would just enable XMP/AMP and have the modules hopefully run together well at 1600mhz.
