Ram speed question


my ram is capable of 685 mhz but it currently runs at 534 mhz , according to cpu-z.

and the board supports:
"Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600* (OC) SDRAM, 16GB Max"

so my question is can i set the RAM speed higher to 685 mhz ? according CPU-z it supports that speed.
and do i have to take care of some other setting in bios?

  1. Remember cpu-z reports are half of the actual speed 534x2=1068
    You should consider finding out what the complete specs are of your ram.
  2. thanks
    i thought cpu-z shows the complete specs in SPD page/tab ? there reads 685 mhz as max..
  3. ...Also found this:

    Detailed Specifications: Standard 128M X 64 Non-ECC 1333MHz 240-pin Unbuffered DIMM (SDRAM-DDR3, 1.5V, CL9, FBGA, Gold)
  4. sorry for the douple posts but i have to glarify. the ram is running at 1066 mhz speed even in bios it shows 1333 where the FSB/DRAM ratio is set to "auto".
    any one know why?
