Tags: Memory Processors Last response: July 23, 2013 5:26 PM in Memory Share kebbz July 23, 2013 5:15:07 PM Hey guys i need some help here. I've got an athlon ii x3 455 95w processor on a 95W motherboard. My memory is a Kingston Hyper blu X 1600 4GB DDR3. I was fiddling around in the bios and realized that my ram was Downclocked to 1066MHZ! Then i was also able to change it. 800MHZ ==> 1600. Did i just increase my wattage? NOTE: Athlon ii x3 455 specs says that it only supports 1333mhz Ram.

TDP will be pretty much the same. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
