Dec 26, 2010, 4:40 PM
I have 8gigs of DDR2 800 ram, g.skill, all the same brand.
So I opened cpu-z tool and I'm looking at this,
it says the DRAM frequency is at 400 mhz, my question is.. shouldn't it be reading 800?
Sorry if this is a noob question lol. Just wondering whats up with it.

You memory is running at 800MHz.
Your RAM is DDR (double data rated) so you take the speed shown in CPU-Z and times it by two... Hence 400MHz x 2 = 800MHz.

^exactly.. Check in BIOS.. It'll show the actual operating speed.. CPU-Z always shows the base clock..

I 'really' REALLY R-E-A-L-L-Y...wish CPUz would put a 'Box' -> 'Speed' in the SPD tab across from 'Slot X' and above 'Correction', and in the Memory tab below 'Size'.
Lets all hope!
