Why is my RAM at 333 mhz instead of 1066 mhz?? Need Help!

Here is the situation,

I just recently put together a computer and along with it I got 2 GB (2x1 GB) of OCZ PC8500 RAM at 1066 mhz. Coupled with my ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe mobo, my RAM is running at 333 mhz. Why is that? how can I get it up to 1066. If there is something that I have to do in BIOS, please tell me step by step since I am new to overclocking. Oh, I also have an AMD Phenom 9950 B.E. 125 watt.

on cpu-z it says my DRAM frequency is 334.5 mhz.

  1. means your FSB is at 1333mhz. Leave it as that and go to CPU:RAM ratio. and change the settings if you want it to be 1066 - although you might not get 1066, but rather 1081 instead.
  2. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha he's joking right?
  3. I have the same issue with my OCZ reaper DDR2 1066. It shows as 335mhz in cpuz, and it should be at least 400 right?

    In my bios, I found HTT multiplier, CPU freq and Multi etc, but no CPU:RAM ratio. Could it be called something else.
    I have a Biostar TF570Sli, and XP Pro SP2 32bit, 5400+ BE @ 3ghz (15x202)
