post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello guys!

I just got vista x64 and 2 + 2 gb g-skill 1066mhz RAM, now why is everest at one place showing that they are 1066 mhz and at other places 800 mhz?





The language is finnish but u can see the numbers.


Why?

Thanx

I believe (because of EPP on high performance) That these chips come in DDR2 800 and 1066, one has the no EPP and is set to 800, The other has EPP and is set to high performnce so these run at 1066, try downloading CPU-Z and see what it says under the memory tab

Dram frequency 400 mhz

You're running 'em underclocked.

DDR2-1066 really isn't designed to just be popped in & magically work.

It requires you set the appropriate ratio (depending on OC or lack of), timings sometimes - namely tRFC), & voltage.
