WyomingKnott a b B Homebuilt system February 22, 2012 3:14:45 PM DDR ram. The speed shows 800 MHZ, but you get 1600 M transfers / second. What it's showing is, I think, the clock rate. The second is easier: the ram doesn't work at that speed. You might try raising the voltage a tiny bit at a time, but this is not my field. I underclock for quiet systems.
