I just finished putting together a new PC with everything my greed and wallet allowed. When I finally start checking on things, the memory is not will running at the correct speed. Actually it is running 1/4 off its actual speed.

The motherboard i bought was ASRock X58 Extreme6. It has more options than I need. And the memory I bought was DDR3 Viper II Series "Sector 7" Edition, Tri Channel.

I have configured memory's voltage (1.65) and the timing information (9-11-9-27).

Below is the info from the cpuid collected.

timing information (9-11-9-27). not worth
ratio to 1:1 set 8-8-8-23 it worth ! or 3:10 7-7-7-20

Henydiah, Can you please explain more. I am new to the world of memory timing. Up till now everything auto detected to correct speeds and I didn't have to worry. This once it is not working that way.

I didn't see anything in the CPUID link; post the image on photobucket.com.

Example:
PC3-16000 - 2000MHz {16000/8 = 2000}
If you're seeing 533 {DDR = Double Data Rate} = 1066 MHz = DEFAULT speed

2000 / 533 ~ 1/4th speed.

ANS - You are running you 2000 MHz at BIOS Default Speed of 1066 MHz.

Solution - OC your RAM in the BIOS. Caveat 2000 MHz RAM to run 'stable' requires SEVERE OC ~ 4Hz with HIGH BCLK {160~180 minimums} otherwise speeds ~ 1600+ MHz will more than likely render the PC Unstable.

I spoke to manufacturer this weekend and they wanted me to run it is at 1800 rather than 2000. The system has been running stable for the past three days.

^Yep, I would tend to agree {otherwise speeds ~ 1600+ MHz}. It's because the disparity between CPU Memory Controller @ 1066 and the RAM Speed(s); if you OC the CPU the disparity 'gap' becomes smaller an the RAM running at 2000 MHz 'becomes' possible.
