Why not just press F5 to load the Optimized Defaults?

But did it work? I heard you double the speed it tells you because it's dual channel and 1066.7 x 2 ~ 2133

I'm pretty sure the clear CMOS is only for when the system won't POST as a result of your settings.

Excellent!  DDR means Double Data Rate, so 1066 x 2 is 2133.  Nice.

Ahh thank you so much! smile.gif

Do I know if it changed anything else though? I know that the memory speed correlates to the CPU speed right?

Also, how come my memory only scores a 7.7?
