The ram just downclocks itself (I believe) to the speed of the motherboard. This also gives you some headroom when you start Overclocking. It shouldn't cause you any problems

</div>Any performance loss? So even if i overclocked my ram to 989 its still working at 667? If yes, is there any way i can raise the "actual" clock to atleast its stock speed of 800? Thnx...
