Confused about ram speed  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I just bought a new pc and it has been assembled for me

Important hardware:

Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3
I5 2500K
Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 8gb cl8

Ok so I just found out that they already overclocked the cpu for me, dont know if thats normal these days.

In BIOS it says that turbo is on 4.2 ghz and the multiplier is at 42 so that seems right.

But my memory is on 1333mhz but shouldnt it be 1600mhz?
I can change it in the bios but I dont know if that would break something.

On AIDA64 it saya DRAM:FSB 20:3

does that mean 20x100mhz = 3x667mhz??

If anyone would know it will be much appreciated smile.gif

Go to the bios and set the x.m.p profile. And it will then set it to the proper speed of 1,600mhz

Advanced mode
* AI Overclock Tuner = X.M.P
Then a new drop down will appear.
* It should state X.M.P 1
Save and exit

Good readme here to help you out on everything. Thanks
