PC Wizard 2007 RAM Ambiguity

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i am running pc wizard 2007 and i am finding an ambiguity (a mix up). i have 2 Gb of ram at 667MHz as it says in the bios, but pc wizard says 333MHz. i've talked to a couple people and they say its the program, or "its dual channel ram so its lists half the speed". i'm not to sure about either of these, i trust the program and i would like some clarifacation on the issue. i'm gonna attach a photo of the pc wizard screen.

Don't worry, mine says exactly the same thing. It's just the way it reports the speed. Mine says "DDR2-SDRAM PC2-5300 (333 MHz)" and as we all know, PC2-5300 is DDR2-667 RAM. I think it's just due to the dual channel thing.

Highly-Annoyed
