8GB's of New Corsair Vengeance - Blue Color (2x 4GB's)

Hello All - I just set-up a new desktop yesterday, and here is what I have...

MoBo - Foxconn MoBo H61MX
RAM - 2x 4GB's Corsair Vengeance - DDR3 1600(PC3-12800) - Blue Color
HD - WD 500GB Green SATA
GPU - ECS 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 620
CPU - Intel Core i3 3240 Ive Bridge
OS - Win 7 Pro 64Bit
PSU - Antec VP450
Case - Ultra Products - Defender II - Black

My question is this. This is what I see while using Pirform's Speccy program, while looking under the RAM area. And then looking under the Slot #1 & Slot #2 area's, I see in the Max Bandwidth area.

Slot #1 Ram reads - PC3-10700 (667 MHz)
Slot #2 Ram reads - PC3-10700H (667 MHz)

Should they have a reading like this? And what does the H mean? Thanks to All who respond.

  1. The default for the CPU and motherboard is 1333 MHz that is where it is running at. You would have to manually set it to 1600 MHz in BIOS.

    Go into BIOS and enable XMP, select profile 1 to get to 1600 - then can check in CPU-Z (free app) in the memory tab - should show 800 (true freq) as this is double data rate (DDR) so true freq (800) x 2 = 1600 effective
