Is my memory running at the right speed?

TBH, I don't mess with memory, I don't OC it, I don't change the timings I just never really needed better performance outta mine. That means, I don't really know anything about it.

However I was messing around looking at CPU-Z and then it looks like my memory isn't running at the right frequency? It should be running at 1333, and it maybe and I just don't know how to read it right.





My BIOS says its set to 1333, but I wanted to make sure.

It's running at 1066MHz. You need to set the speed and timings manually.

Hi.

No, like I say ur RAM is only running at 1069.2MHz. Re-check the BIOS configuration or set all the specifications of the RAM manually in the BIOS.

Yeah, I get that it isn't running at 1333 haha, but where in CPU-z do you see that? Like what gives it away, becuase I don't understand it. And rechecking BIOS, everything is set to default and it says Target Frequency 1333Mhz, also Everest says its running at 1333 too =/

The best way to run the RAM at the default spec (1333) is that u set all the specifications manually in the BIOS, so, look for the manual configuration and change the CL, tRCD, tRP, tRAS, CMD to the specific for ur RAM.

Guess I'll have to read up on that... they are all set to default so I don't know why it would be running under 1333
