Hello,
I recently purchased the G Skill PI 6gb ram (3x2gb) from newegg and I was wondering if it was running proper timing (7-8-7-24-2N) and speed (1600mhz)? Thank you

Go to the Memory tab in CPU-Z, then select a populated slot. If it shows ~800MHz, it is running as specified.

I find with almost any brand of board, and any brand of memory, you are always best off to go into the bios and set the timings and voltage manually. Even the best boards don't always get the timings right, and quite often (with minor tweaking) you can actually get the memory to run at better timings with the regular voltage.

I attached a picture. XMP is at 800mhz but the other ones are at 592mhz, 666mhz, and 740mhz. XP Is this right?
