1600mhz ram automatically underclocked to 666mhz?

running a foxconn h61s and as a gift i got some corsair vengeance @1600mhz and i understand this mobo only supports 1333mhz and it states it in the bios but speedfan is telling me it's running at 666mhz, and afaik this mobo does not support any form of overclocking and got it because i didn't really plan to

timings are stock 9-9-9-24

but there's no way to oc this ram with this mobo? or at least run it @ 1333mhz

  1. I am not completely sure, but I think the number you get from speedfan you double and get your operating speed (666x2 ~ 1333).

    666 is 1333 (666*2). Unless you can change the settings of your RAM you are out of luck, and 1333 is the best you can do.

  4. thanks, wasn't aware of that, i'm fine with 1333 the performance gains between the two are slim anyways and this will do better than most 1333mhz ram
  5. RAM speed comparison - We're looking at a less than 2% difference from the fastest to the slowest.
