Hey, about 4 months ago I overclocked my G skill ram F2-8500CL5-2GBPK from 800 to 1066 but now I go look at CPU-Z and it shows the DRAM frequency at 400.7MHz

Now works out to be 800Mhz correct? so its some how reveresed back to 800Mhz form my overclock of 1066.

Whats happened?

I also cant find the options to overclock it back and cant rememember how to.

any help?

Thank you.

That is 800 MHZ.
Increase the memory voltage to 2.1v.
Increase the northbridge voltage one notch.
Relax the timings.
Run memtest86+ and check for errors.

In the bios, set the memory options to manual. Then you should be able to make these changes.
