so i have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277 in slots 1 and 3

i just ordered and installed http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 in slots 2 and 4

something odd showed in cpu-z

slot 1+2 shows ram with max bandwidth 10700
slot 3+4 shows ram with max bandwith of 12800

did newegg send me wrong kits to begin with?

i checked my old invoice and it shows i ordered 12800, but cpu-z shows differently

is this a return or rma. tyvm

Memory is not always shipped at its max speed by default. Youll most likely have to set it to full speed in the BIOS. The part numbers for the kits match up though, so you got the correct set. The "Max Bandwidth" that CPUZ shows is not actually the max bandwidth, its just the default speed.

The memory Ive got shows up in CPUZ as 10700/1333mhz default, but its rated at 12800/1600mhz. This is a pretty common thing.
scared me to death. just got off the phone with gskills they basically said the same thing. as long as my xmp shows the desired ram them that is what matters. he did mention that i have to put the ram settings in manually and all should be good. i ran a memory error test a while back and nothing showed.

i notice that my xmp-1600 has different readouts the 4x2g is 9x9x9x25x40;t2 where as the 2x2 is 9x9x9x25x33;t2 is this something to worry?
