Memory not working effeciently..?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to these boards and I got here because a friend recommanded it. I'm pretty illiteriate when it comes to computer knowledge : (

My problem is that I have PC3200 memory that should run at 200mhz, however using CpuZ I only see that it runs at ~165mhz... is this normal..? Or are those just two completely different things I'm mixing up..?

Here are some pics:






Thanks for any help

What is your cpu...and what is the front side bus speed? if its 133 or something like that, then yes, its normal for it to run at 166. PC3200 ram means that it supports up to 200mhz speeds.

This is because it has been downgraded to 2t or pc2700 this is due having ram in the wrong slot usually. Because the slots have different settings applied at various module positions. What board are you using? In any motherboard manual you should see what the ram setup is in what slots it goes into for that setting.

Err.. this is my CPU I guess... I have no clue how to find out my front bus speed.. : (



Also the rams are in pairs, like dual channel or something... so I only have 2 ways of plugging them in(all green or all pruple). Maybe I should try replugging them in the other color?

Nevermind, I got it fixed... I just went into bios and change my DDR from 333 to 400. Now it magically works... and my frequency went to ~200 >.>''
