Cpuid shows about 400 for ddr2 800 (pc6400). I wouldn't overclock it. | Report abuse sportsfanboy Memory Expert September 30, 2009 9:57:01 PM Your memory will say dd2 400 or close to it in cpuz, that means 800mhz effective, so that's correct. I recommend setting the timings and voltage to manufacturers specifications as well. | Report abuse welshmousepk September 30, 2009 10:56:49 PM DDR2 is double pumped, so for every cycle it gets two calculations. therefore at 400mhz operating speed it has an effective 800mhz. so yup, this is correct. you may be able to OC it to 533 and get 1066 effective if you are lucky | Report abuse Related ressources Hi guys /girls do you think this is a good build please need advice . - Forum s939 upgrade - advise please!i have an - Forum Hi Guys , i need a new GPU - Forum Hi guys , i need a gaming pc help please - Forum Stucked Guys Need Help . - Forum Ask the community Publish jsc Memory Master October 1, 2009 8:34:53 AM I am not a proponent of overclocking memory. There is no practical benefit to running memory faster the FSB freq:mem clock ratio of 1:1 as reported in CPU-ID. For my Core2 systems (Gigabyte), I change the System Memory Mult. from AUTO to 2.0 (DDR2 memory) and let the memclock rise with the FSB frequency. Leaving the SMM on AUTO can limit your overclock because the memory will reach its limits before the CPU does. | Report abuse umarrehman187 October 1, 2009 10:00:26 AM so because it say 267 in cpu z shall i change it manually to ddr2 800 in bios so it says 401.8 in cpu z ? | Report abuse erdinger October 1, 2009 2:37:30 PM umarrehman187 said:so because it say 267 in cpu z shall i change it manually to ddr2 800 in bios so it says 401.8 in cpu z ?
