cpu-z reads diff then bios
CPU-z reads my memory as 400mghz when in the bio it is set to 266 so it should say 533. My memory is 1066mghz 5-5-5-15.
The memory tab on cpuz is all blanked out except for the timing.
All it says is Type:ddr
CAS Latency 2.0
command rate: blank
Dram idle timer: blank
channels # blank
performance mode blank
blank interleave : blank
Is there a compatibility list for CPUz? I would like to find out if its compatible with motherboard

System Manufacturer ECS
System Name K7SOM+
System S/N 00000000
Mainboard Vendor ECS
Mainboard Model K7SOM+
BIOS Vendor American Megatrends Inc.
BIOS Version 07.00T
BIOS Date 04/02/01
Module 1 DDR, PC3200 (200 MHz), 512 MBytes, unknown brand
Module 2 DDR, PC3200 (200 MHz), 512 MBytes, unknown brand
The memories are all Infineon DDR 3200 memory modules but the SPD shows that its unknown brand.
I changed the timing for these ddr 3200 modules from CL3 to CL2, does it affect CPUZ's reading? Every function in CPUZ works except the memory section.
Quote:I am looking under the memory tab and in the frequency box and it says 400 mghz..... when it shoudl say 533 why doesnt it report it right?
OK, that means your memory IS running at 400MHz, or DDR2-800. I strongly suspect it is reporting the correct speed, and perhaps you are mistaken that you set it to DDR2-533.
How, *exactly* did you set the memory speed (not the FSB speed) to DDR2-533?
LOL... Thats right... SIS is pretty low end. I bought this computer 6 years ago and back then, i didn't have lots of cash. So i spent 500$ on this crappy machine and it's still very usable. It never lags, freeze, hangs, or anything that shows signs of defects except for that the bios battery died. So now.. settings reverts to default every time i restart my computer, but no harm done.

I doubt very much that the exact words on the BIOS screen are "my ram frequency". :wink:
As far as I can tell, either CPUZ is reporting the wrong memory bus speed, or there's some confusion in how the memory bus speed gets set on your board. I'm betting on the latter; to help clear it up, a screen shot would be great, but a verbatim report of what the screen shows should be enough.
A Socket 'A' rig is well within in it's rights to not want to run DDR1 400 RAM as DDR2 533, in other words it's running as it should mate, the ECS board might not be the best and it won't OC for toffee I know because I'm typing this on an ECS K7VTA3 rig, just replace the mobo battery and leave the BIOS be.

I don't think I'll be replacing the mobo battery since I run every setting the factory default. There's nothing wrong running on dead battery, no hangs, it post, the only con is that the system starting time is 3 seconds more because it always displays, " Please change your bios battery" message.
Quote:Custom Ram Frequency: Default is 200 I set it to 266...
I can't find that setting in the Intel BIOS .pdf: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/biosglossarybymenu_v07.pdf
