OK, in the bios i have all the main memory options like:<br />
<br />
mem voltage: 1.95<br />
mem clock frequency: 667<br />
tlc: auto<br />
trcd: auto<br />
trp: auto<br />
tras: auto<br />
1t/2t mem timing: auto<br />
<br />
and then theres like 20 other options in the advanced tab....<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/2/26/265dc448_vbattach33842.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616576/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/3/31/31b80cf7_vbattach33843.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616575/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/e/e2/e2db5e23_vbattach33844.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616574/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

In BIOS under mem clock frequencey, change it to what you want to run it at. If it IS 900mhz ram, than it should be able to run at that. If you will post a link to it, that would help.

</div>I'm not sure what led you to believe that you have 900mhz ram, but you don't. Your PQI Turbo stick is ddr2 667 cas5 and isn't guaranteed to go any higher.

Give me a link to the ram itself, like from newegg.com or manufacture's page. If it is 900MHz ram, it should run at that ok, we need to know what the stock voltage should be. To run at a specific speed (mhz) you must have enough voltage. Too high can mess up the RAM, to low will make it unstalbe, and hence, not boot.

When I purchased my RAM it was advertised as DDR2 PC7200 900mhz RAM............so was that falsely advertised? can someone have a look.......it's at <a href="http://www.umart.com.au" target="_blank">www.umart.com.au</a>

</div>I honestly think you were shipped the wrong ram. If you look closely at your cpu-z screenshots, you can clearly see that the SPD table shows the suggested timings at 667 mhz are 5 5 5 15. If that stick could honestly hit 450 mhz, it would have much tighter timing at 333mhz (don't get confused with actual operating frequency and effective frequency). Also, there isn't even a table for speeds over 333mhz.

I never thought that could be the problem, I am e-mailing the supplier to find out what the deal is, I'll be back when I find out what's going on, lol.
