RAM Sticks at 1333Mhz?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I just went into my bios and noticed that my ram sticks are running at a speed of 1333mhz when they are suppose to run at 1600mhz? Is there a way I can make it run at 1600mhz? I have a Phenom II 955 BE @ 3.8Ghz.


Thanks!

Which number? 1600mhz? Will that affect the stability in my system?

It wouldn't hurt to manually set the timings if you haven't already. Sometimes the BIOS will set them too high or low depending on the frequency the RAM is set at.

which timings should I go for? Right now I checked CPU-Z and it says 9-9-9-24

EDIT: Btw changing the frequency worked! thanks railfan844

9-9-9-24 is probably good. I just mentioned it because I've had stability issues when the BIOS reduces the timings along with the frequency.
