Weird frquencies

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Attached is a picture of what I currently have.
667 MHz? I thought that the 1600 was supposed to run at 2000 MHz.

This screen shot was during prime95 testing.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

DDR = Dual Data ram

667 x 2 = 1334 Mhz

Ram is running at Auto?

Basically here's what happened:

The RAM loaded with with the defaulted settings of 1333mhz and 9-9-9-24 timings. This happens to all RAM when you forget to properly set it in the BIOS and is not a hardware fault or problem at all, in fact, it's simple to fix if you want it running at higher clocks.

With regards to the 667mhz, thats perfectly normal - what's 667 * 2? "Dual"-data-ram.

So to get your RAM running at its stated speeds of 2000mhz, I would reboot, go to the BIOS and set XMP Profile 1 for quick and trouble-free setting of its respective frequency speeds. Then exit and save the settings and you should be good to go.

Thank you so much. I feel dumb for not noticing that. >.<
I don't have a XMP profile option, but there was one for 1600.

If there was an existing setting for anything above 1333, then you'll know it is still XMP related or pre-defined already for the user's convenience
