Closed Memory only running at 666 MHz? Tags: Memory BIOS Product Last response: February 27, 2012 7:57 PM in Memory Share MogusMaximus February 27, 2012 6:44:46 PM I recently bought this memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...(Desktop+Memory)-_-Corsair-_-20145350 Which is supposed to run at 1600 MHz correct? Or no? I'm confused here, how do I set it up to run at the correct speed? I know there is a multiplier in the BIOS I can use to change the speed of the system, but I don't want to change the wrong thing. Here is an Everest screenshot of my rig a few moments ago: Any help much appreciated, thanks!!

The DRAM:FSB ratio changed from 4:1 to 6:1, but the RAM is still listed at the same speed at the bottom. What am I missing here?
