First of all this is my first time in a forum, well no i go in them all the time but my first time speaking in one, i have this problem and ive tried loads and loads of forums and its confusing me, so i thought it if it was specific to me it would help alot.
I have just built my first gaming machine and i noticed something when i ran CPU-Z and everything was correct apart from two things, on the memory tab it says "DRAM Frequency" 533Mhz now i bought DDR2 Memory which runs at 1066Mhz so i was wondering is the DRAM the same as your actual DDR2 speed or is it half because DDR2 can load and send data at the same time right? so if it loads it at 533Mhz and sends it out at 533Mhz that should make the total speed 1066Mhz...? correct me if im wrong.
Just incase this helps you incase its a FSB RAM ratio or something beyond my wisdom i have included this information, my Bus speed is 266Mhz and my rated FSB is 1066Mhz and My FSB RAM ratio is 1:2, now i read somewhere that making your ratio 1:1 is the best... but my pc wouldnt boot when i did.
Now the second thing i noticed was on the SPD tab it says Max Bandwidth PC2-5300 (333Mhz) whats that about is my ram slot running slow or something? or is it a result of this other problem... if it is a problem that is.
