Low Dram Frequency.

Yeah, I am having a problem and was curious on if anyone could help me. In CPU-Z it says my DRAM is 480MHz and my NB Frequency is 2560.0. Now I have 2GBx3 PC1333 DDR3 PC3 10666 in Triple Channel. I'm not a computer guru, but 480MHz seems low, and I was curious on if its just I don't know what I'm talking about, or is it that its really off. If it is off, any help in getting everything running the way it should be would be greatly appreciated. I have a few screenshots in case I explained, or left out any information. Thanks again!

More about dram frequency
  1. did you play in the bios
  2. CPU-Z reports memory frequency, not memory clock. For DDR3, multiply mem freq X 2 to get mem clock.

    It's just one of those things that makes this hobby so much fun. :D
  3. 480mhz x 2 (double data rate) = 960mhz

    That is the frequency your ram is running.
  4. I realize that, and I appreciate the answer, but if my ram is 1333 shouldnt it be around 666.7 instead of 480? Like I mentioned I have 2GBx3 PC1333 DDR3 PC3 10666. Yeah I played around in the bios, but I only OC my cpu, I didn't mess with the ram.
  5. Check your dram ratio in bios, adjusting this should put you to the right speed. You must have changed this when you overclocked your cpu.
  6. Thanks, Ill get on it.

    So I put my dram freq back up to where it should be, but I am a little confused on the voltage. Should I leave it on 1.7?
