This cant be right,,,can it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Long story short I just installed 16gb of Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866mhz ram onto my Asus Sabertooth Z77 mobo. I have it set correctley(I think) in the BIOS but for some reason it only shows to be running at 677mhz on CPU-Z. Am I doing something wrong? Plus anything else you see that could be fixed please let me know. Here is the screenshot:

You need to set your speed manually in BIOS. Right now it's defaulting to 1333 mhz.
The reason this shows up as 667 is because CPU-Z doesn't take double data rate into consideration. Your RAM frequency is double what CPU-Z says.
So to recap, go to your BIOS and set your frequency to 1866, then check CPU-Z, it should say 933 mhz.

Edit: I see you fixed it. smile.gif
