equal ram running at different speeds?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello everyone.

I have a MSI Z68-GD80 mobo sporting a i5-2500k @ 5ghz, and what should be 4x4 gb ddr3 @ 1600mhz 9-9-9-24. Part number CMX8GX3M2A1600C9.

However, according to cpu-z: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1865099

2 are running at 8500 and 2 on 10700.

XMP is enabled, and bios claims 1600 as rated DDR speed.

Is cpu-z wrong? or is there something going on here?

Thanks for taking time to answer a newbie to the forums

Those are the rams models not the speed. Above that it is showing the rams speed and timings. So that 800.1 x2 = your rams speed.

aah, thanks mate

Still a bit confused as to why the model's would differ, when they are all the same part number, and on the sticks them self it was the same version number of the sticks as well.

But as long as they all run on 800x2, it's all good.

I'm not sure why they would differ either, I miss spoke in a way when saying "model" that's showing the ram models rated speed but not current speed. But anyway it's all good like you said. Because they are running at proper speeds.
