I purchased some G-Skill Ripjaws a couple of days ago, and since they arrived and I put them into my PC, I've not been getting the 1866Mhz I would like. I've been able to adjust the timings to the correct 9-10-9-28 but I have not been able to get a full 1866Mhz, CPU-z shows 936Mhz.

AMD FX8350
Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
2x4Gb G-Skill Ripjaws

Dual channel? 936x2 = 1872.

To better clarify DDR stands for Double Data Rate. so 936 is actually 1872mhz
