    Hi there,

    DDR3= double data rate

    800x2=1600MHz
  2. So, u are running @ 1600MHz : )
  3. Damn it Nikorr beat me to it as always! I can double post too!
  4. It is running at the correct speed. DDR memory makes 2 IO transfers per reference clock. In proper terms it would be 1600MT/s because it makes 1.6 billion transfers per second. The actual IO bus frequency is only 800Mhz
  5. Thank you guys for the quick response :)
