post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am running
p8p67 ws revolution with i5-2500k clocked at 4,5ghz

my ram are 2x4 gb kingston hyperX PC12800 (1600mhz)
on default they stand as 1333 in bios, but as said in the book following the MB that was normal, so I took them up to 1600. now, im using CPU-Z and it states my dram frequency at 800.. before I OC'ed them it said 600.
am I reading it wrong? or is there something seriously wrong with my ram?

pretty new to ram OC'ing so..

apprechiate any help!

Is it correct that per RAM piece the DRAM frequency should be counted as the number it says on CPU-Z x 2.. meaning that if it says 800 which mine does, it actually means multiplied by 2 = 1600 so there's nothing wrong at all?
