Thats fine bud.

its 667x2 (being for dual channel)

It is running at 1333mhz.

DDR = Double Data Rate

Multiply that 667MHz by 2 and see what happens wink.gif

Argh! Ninja'd by 10 seconds lol

wow this guys are fast.... thanks for the reply but, i remove a stick of ram and its the same.... i did the math (667 x 2 = 1334) and want to see if it worked but still shows DDR3 1333 ( 667) WITH JUST ONE MEMORY!

here is a pic of the CPUz validation.........355

Removing a dimm won't reduce the frequency of the RAM, just the amount. The 1333 (667) is in reference to the operating frequency (speed) of the dimms.

If you set your frequency to 1333MHz in the BIOS then whether you have 1, 2,3 or 4 dimms in the there, all will run at 1333MHz. And in CPU-Z 1333 = 667 because it doesn't account for DDR.
