My computer has 4 ram slots, I had 4gb (2x 2gb) of stock Samsung RAM and I added 4gb (2x 2gb) Corsair XMS2 RAM. They both are supposed to run at 800mhz with 1.8 volts. When I run them together, the frequency lowers to 665mhz. Separately they run fine at 800mhz.
My motherboard is: g33m05g1
I read that someone else got their 8gb of ram at 800mhz on the same motherboard, so I don't think that is at fault.
Also I noticed the latency of the memory lowered from (6-6-6-18) to (5-5-5-15) even though the samsung ram doesn't run at that latency. I didn't do anything on the BIOS because i cannot, got a dumb stock mobo.
Is the BIOS getting false readings?
Or is using all four slots just like that?
I got the same reading with CPUZ program.
