G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 running at 933

Sorry for the repost. I put this post in the wrong place.

Hi everyone - installed my G Skills and checked CPU-Z. Says it's running at 933. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesnt DDR2 get divided by 2 in CPU-Z. If this is the case, how is DDR3 handled? If it should be divided by 3, how come my ram shows its running at 933?


UPDATE: This is a noob question, please discard. From what I'm reading, my RAM is running fine at 933. I can probably push for 2133Mhz. Thanks anyway: http://www.pureoverclock.com/Review-detail/gskill-ripjaws-x-8gb-ddr3-1866/4/

  1. You should be able to change the setting on the RAM in your BIOS (I run GSkill's Sniper RAM at 2133).
  2. That is normal... In CPU-Z it always shows half the clock speed. I have 1600Mhz ram and it shows 800Mhz in CPU-Z
  3. DDR is double data rate.

    Effective frequency / 2 = real frequency

    DDR-400 = 200MHz

    DDR2-800 = 400MHz

    DDR3-1600 = 800MHz

    DDR4-3200 = 1600MHz

    It is not because DDR(2) that makes it x2. It is (DDR)2 that makes it x2. Hope that clarifies things.

    Thank you
