i have 8gb corsair vengeance . its frequency is 1600 mhz. and some timing stuff for this is 10 -10 -10- 27( dont knw much about this ).

i changed my ram slot to 3rd slot from 1st slot because i installed a hyper 212 evo and i dont want my ram to be soo close to it by fixing ram in 1st slot so moved it to 3rd slot n then my ram frequencies shows as

8.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (4-5-5-15).


do u think the changing of ram slot matters ?? or its just some software issue ?? bcos in bios i set everything to AUTO . the software iam getting these readings are speccy. ..

help me out thank you i advance for ur valuable time and patience in answering my questions

the stick of ram i was referring to. You can select XMP profiles in the bios. Does your motherboard even support 1600mhz ram?

Yes it decreased to 1333 because you put it that way (double data rate and all).

Changing the slot does matter. Is this 1 stick, or 2 sticks, what motherboard do you have? What does your manual say about installing memory, there will be preferred slots, and preferred banks to use. Is it actually hitting the cooler? If not, put it back where it was.

yeah it is hitting the cooler . it is one 8 GB ram iam using hyper 212 evo. the shop guy says that the cooler model cant be fixed vertically so he fixed it horizontally and so 2 slots of ram are blocked cant use 2 slots . and 2 more slots can be used in which 1 is blue and 1 is black. i placed the ram in 3rd slot now. previously wen i dint install cooler it was in 1st slot n before i post this in this site ram was in 4th slot .

on the ram it is said as corsair vengeance 1600 MHz. 10-10-10-27 8GB .and in system bios also it shows as 1600MHz as current memory frequency but in speccy software and CPU-Z software it shows as 800MHz is maximum bandwidth


according to my motherboard manul abt memory configurations :

you may install varying memory sizes in channal A and channel B. the system maps the total size of the lower- sized channel for a dual- channel configuration. any excess memory from the higher -sized channel is then mapped for single -channel operation.

we recommend that you install the memory modules from the blue slots for better overclocking capability..

my ram in placed in 3rd slot n it is blue in color too .
