PC3-10700 or PC3-12800

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When i bought this memory the specs said PC3-12800. I finished my build and am running cpu-z, and it's reading PC3-10700. Can someone have a look at these screens and tell me what im running at, 10700, or 12800.
If i am at 10700 how can i get this memory to run at 12800 as advertised.

I have X.M.P set in the bios, and DDR3-1600 selected, I also set the Volts to 1.50, and am doing a mild Overclock on the cpu.

You can see the model number and specs of the ram here:

It's running as DDR3 -1600 from your first pic. The second pic just shows what the defined speed ratings/timings are.
