Memtest showing wrong RAM speed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ive got my RAM clocked at DDR-1332 with my 3.5GHz CPU overclock and I set the timings with the spd profile, but when I ran memtest it said it was running at DDR-1067.
Why is this happenening, and will it still give accurate results as to whether its stable at 1332?

Ive only got a single module in at the mo because ones horribly broken/ corrupted, so ill be stuck like this till I can RMA.
The timings are 9-9-9-24-34.

Thanks!

MemTest doesn't always report the memory frequency correctly.
What does CPU-Z or BIOS 'say'?

My BIOS and CPU-Z both show it as 1332, but i just found it odd that memtest would get the memory speed wrong by 300MHz...
So even if its displaying it wrongly, it will be running at, and will be testing for stability at 1332?

Thanks for the quick reply smile.gif

Are you looking in the memory tab of CPU-z? What does it show for DRAM Frequency?

What version memtest86+ are you using?

Cheers

CPU-Z should be correct.

I would just overclock it so it shows a higher value on both ends! thumb.gif
