OK, the info you listed is the "SPD" info that the DIMM manufacturer has stored in the EEPROM memory on the DIMM. That info says that the memory should work at 333MHz (DDR2-667) under standard 5-5-5-15 timings. However, this does not tell you either *the max tested speed* of the memory or *what timings are actually being used* by the system to run your memory.
To find out what timings are actually being used, go to the Hardware / Mainboard window in PC Wizard (2006), and click on "Chipset" in the list in the upper right window. Look in the bottom right window under the "Information" tab and go down to the "Memory information" section. That will show the frequency and timings that the memory is running at.
The max tested speed/timings for your modules are only available from the manufacturer -- you'll need to find that out from their web site, tech support, etc.

Thank you for your assitance ! it checks out that my system is running at 667 thanks again !
