1600MHz RAM showing up as 800MHz RAM on CPU-z? (Crucial Ballistix Sport)
Hi there, I recently built a new gaming rig, so I'm slightly new to this stuff. I decided to go for the 4GB (2x2GB) Crucial Ballistix RAM kit (will upgrade later). Now, after checking Task Manager on Windows 8, it showed that my RAM is currently running at 800MHz, as seen in the picture bellow:
So I decided to install CPU-Z and double check, and it showed the same thing:
Is this just a misread? Or am I actually only getting 800MHz? Is there a way to supposedly 'fix' this issue?
Here is my full rig, if you need the info:
