Vengeance — 8GB Memory Problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I just built my computer and I pretty much went all out, within reason, anyways I got some Corsair Vengeance Ram, 8gb duel channels. Its rated at 1600MHz http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-8gb...m2a1600c8.html

But in CPU-Z It shows up at around 800-820 MHz usually. Anyone know why this is happening and can help me fix it?
- I do have a 64 bit os.
-My mobo is the ASUS Crosshair IV

-Thanks

It's fine, your ram is dual channel so multiply that by two and you have 1600.

Your speed is correct.

Dual channel does not imply you double the frequency, just like triple channel you don't triple the frequency

DDR stands for "double data rate" so when it's running at 800mhz it's actually double that, so 1600mhz.
