hey guys, when i installed speccy and cpuz, the dram frequency for my g skill ddr3 1600 ram (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...) reads as 800mhz instead of 1600. i recently changed this in my bios to 1600 so i dont know why xp is reading it as 800mhz, half of what im suppose to be getting. is 1600 a limitation in windows xp home, as is more than 4gb ram? thanks

Hi.

DDR3 menas double-data-rate three, in other words u need multiply by 2 the speed that u see in the BIOS or CPU-Z.

800MHz x 2 = 1600MHz, that is the speed of ur G.Skill RAM.

So, ur RAM is fine, don't worry about that.
