Memory detection problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi

I noticed this from day 1.

In CPUZ, my RAM would always show up as "PC2-5300 (333MHz)" and 333MHz would be the max bandwidth (instead of PC2-6400 (400MHz) and 400MHz max band). Also, in the BIOS, the default setting was 667MHz instead of 800MHz. Is this due to my motherboard or is the RAM faulty? The RAM is installed in dual channel.

Thanks.

Does it still do that even if you set it to DDR2-800 manually? Asus boards normally lower and speed and timings of ram to make sure they boot up at 1.8v and then you can set them to stock speeds/overclock.

I set it to the specified 4-4-4-14 at 2.0V in the BIOS, but CPUZ still shows it as PC2-5300 under the SPD tab. It doesn't show the part number there either.

It SHOULD look like this:


But, it looks like this:

It's probably just the motherboard misreading the info on the RAM. Double check the label on the RAM to make sure you have the product you ordered, of course, but it's not unusual for there to be a mixup of this kind (especially on a new chipset that has a reputation for all kinds of BIOS issues). As long as you can get the RAM to run at least at the spec speed and timings, you're good to go.

Well, if it is a mixup of the product, I would feel kinda gipped. I have contacted Kingston Tech Support via e-mail and am awaiting their response. I'll call them tomorrow if I haven't received a response by then.

If the RAM info isn't explicit on the DIMMs, there should at least be a product code that you can Google to find more info.
