Your RAM is running at 1604.8MHz. If you wanna overclock it, you do it from the BIOS.

But why is your CPU running at 1.6GHz??

Because my system was idling at the time. I'm still sorta new at this. I could take another test, but what should I use to stress my PC while doing the validation?

RAM Speed : 802.4 MHz (1:6) @ 11-11-11-28

Looks like Ram is running 802mhz.

But I can understand that some people got/get upset, it wouldn`t make much sense to fake a screen to enter the club. It`s not like you get a greencard for that...
Edit: Who ever gave me the rep on the front page - thanks for that. I found a typo because of that.

It was me biggrin.gif, no problem.

Since I'm going to post anyway...

2130944.png

I was also part of the user base with 8GB when 2GB was still quite standard and 4GB was up and coming, back in 2008 or 2009 or so? Here's that one...

2113860.png

It was a shame that by time I found myself registering on OCN and finding the 8GB club, my great quantity of RAM was on the eve of becoming mainstream with Sandy Bridge. But hey, that was DDR3 and two 4GB modules. Mine was 8GB DDR2 with four 2GB modules.

Back then, I got 8GB because A) prices were cheap, B) I've more often had lack of RAM and wanted to splurge a bit; A and B go hand in hand then as it sure beats the days gone by where RAM was more expensive relatively, and C) I've found that seemingly excessive RAM now greatly helps down the line, either in prolonging life, adding value, opening heavier multi-tasking opportunities, and whatnot. I actually see 4GB as the minimum for a modern 64-bit Windows PC (at least for enthusiasts), with 6GB and 8GB being more the sweet spot.

Basically, it was for the same reasons that I got 16GB now, and because I wanted to move up. Of course, part of it is also to be ahead of the curve a bit, but it still definitely has it's perks for the small cost, so there you go. I don't necessarily need it (4GB wouldn't be enough though), but I find ways to make use of it. I benefited from 8GB on many occasions, so going forward, it's what I wanted.

It is, as it should be. Look at my validation above. It's the same. It's running at 800MHz despite being 1600MHz stuff (and the DDR2 stuff from the other validation is running 400MHz despite being 800MHz stuff).

Most modern RAM is DDR (double data rate), which, as the name suggests, is doubled. DDR transfers data on the rising and falling edge of a clock, so twice per clock, so in your case, it's 800MHz actual, 1600MHz (more properly, 1600MT/s) effective.

It is x2. I see you have the SpeedStep on... IMO, Intel Burn Test is pretty damn stressful on CPU/Memory, try that.

Though I doubt that's faked, but wouldn't it have just been easier, quicker, and more proving to validate it rather than to capture, save, and upload an image manually?
