Dear Community,
I recently built a new machine just for home use. Although when i check my Ram with CPU-z it shows i only run it at 667Mhz and not 1333mhz as advertised. I am pretty good with computers. just some things i am not sure on.
Is it suppose to be like this? or am i missing a setting i was suppose to set?

Not sure if it's required.

Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

Biostar A880G+

Below i list pictures of CPU-Z timings.

Since its DDR memory its Double Data Rate so you have to multiplay that number you see in cpuz by 2 and then you get your 1333mhz.
