Ram speeds low?

Hey guys I just made my first build a while ago and I noticed that my ram (2x8gb corsair vengence pro 1833mhz) is only running at like 993mhz both ram modules are working so I am wondering what's going on? I have lastest drivers also.

Mobo: Asus Maximus VI hero .

Also a note I did manual set it on my mobo to 1833

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Have you tried looking through your bios for any weird/unfamiliar looking changes to your memory? I know for my MB's bios you can change the speeds of them. I'm running four 4gbs of memory on mine and I can change the mhz they produce if I want too

    933x2=1866 It's running at the right speed. DDR stands for double data rate, so the effective rate is double the actual hence the x2. Ram doesn't have drivers.
  3. Ohh wow I feel really stupid now, I thought they were both running at 933 each, well thanks for clearing it up. Also I was referring to motherboard drivers :P
