Hey just got gskill ddr2 1066, but cant get them to run at 1066. I changes the voltage to 2.1 and set it to 555 15 but only went from 400 to 533 here is what it says in cpuz 533 3:8 5 5 5 15 35 2t what else do i need to change? i have a phenom x3 and mobo supports 1066. its a biostar a770 thxs
More aboutddr2 running 1066
Its running fine, ddr stands for double data rate, 533 doubled is? top of the class that man Moto
o was wondering why it first showed 400 and not 800, well thxs for the info should i put the voltage down to 2.0? says 2.0-2.1. Was running fine on 2.0
DDR2 ratings refer to memory clock. CPU-Z figures are based on memory frequency which is half the memory clock.
If the factory voltage recommendations say 2.0 - 2.1 volts, I would run it at 2.1 volts even if the memory seems to run OK at 2.0 volts. For me, the extra stability is worth the small heat and power penalty.
