That's my system, an x3 720, ripjaw ram, and gigabyte mobo. In the bios (which is where i think i need to go) I find the ram settings page and there's a crapload of options (including cas latency), but i don't see anything about 1333 or 1600. Anyone have any advice for me? thanks!
Found it today, changed it to 800mhz, but windows experience index didn't go up at all. Isd that normal? I can't believe my laptop with ddr2 400mhz ram is getting a higher score than my ripjaw ddr3 at 1600mhz...
Something I noticed was if you look at the screenshot, cpu-z lists my ram as being in "single" channel mode. That's no good right? Any way to fix that? I've got two ram stick and put in the blue colored slot and one in a black colored slot. slot 1 and 3 according to my mobo.
I might be wrong but i though that you had to put both sticks in the same coloured slots so that they can be dual channel. I think there also supposed to go in the slots closest to the cpu. But since I'm a bit of a noob don't assume I'm right.
