Is my memory running at 1600

Hi there,

I've just built my first comp and wondering if you can help me to determine whether the RAM is running at the specified speed it is capable of (1600mhz)?


The specs of my build:
CPU: AMD Phenom II x2 BE 555 - but with unlocked cores is recognized as - QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition B55, 3200 MHz (16 x 200)
mobo: Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H v2
RAM modules: Corsair XMS CMX4GX3M2A1600C8 ; 2x2GB - bought as kit


Setting are as follows in the screenshots:






Is there any additional setting you can advise me please?

Thanks for any suggestions....

  1. According to CPU-Z its bus speed is 800MHz which means it is running at 1600MHz like you want because it is DDR, it is running properly.
  2. Thanks for the prompt reply...

    So why everest shows me:

    Looks to me like bus is running ok but modules @667?

    As I'm newbie to this do I understand it incorrectly? Do I need to perform other checks in different reliable tool running under W7?
